Updated: September 14, 2013

Amsterdam, Netherlands (Sports Network) – Ajax pulled off a victory over the
Eredivisie’s first-place side on Saturday, earning a 2-1 defeat of Zwolle at
the Amsterdam ArenA.

The match was scoreless until the second half when the home side hit for two
goals in the span of four minutes.

Thulani Serero opened the scoring in the 72nd minute before an own goal from
Maikel van der Werff put Ajax two goals to the good.

Giovanni Gravenbeek pulled one back in the 89th minute, but it failed to spark
a comeback for the visitors.

The top of the Eredivisie table becomes even tighter with PSV Eindhoven only
managing a 2-2 draw at Twente on Saturday. Zwolle still resides at the summit
on 13 points, but the club is followed closely by PSV on 12 points and Ajax on
11 points.

Also in the Dutch top flight on Saturday, Cambuur picked up a 2-0 win over
Heracles while Den Haag’s meeting with Vitesse was postponed due to a water-
logged pitch.
