It left them a point behind leaders FC Twente, level with Ajax and also PEC Zwolle, who hammered ADO Den Haag 6-1.

Aron Johannsson made it 2-1 two minutes before the break before getting his second in the 68th minute to seal the win.
Bottom side NEC Nijmegen played for almost an hour with 10 men and came within minutes of a first win of the season, but had to settle for 1-1 with Heracles Almelo.
Rens van Eijden gave the visitors a second-minute lead, but they were dealt a blow when Christoph Hemlein was sent off in the 32nd minute.

FC Twente remained at the top following a 1-1 draw at home to champions Ajax on Saturday.

Luc Castaignos fired Twente ahead on 22 minutes but their failure to hold on to the lead means PSV Eindhoven can replace them at the top with victory at Groningen on Sunday.
Marnix Kolder's 89th-minute equaliser prevented Feyenoord joining Twente at the top as the Go Ahead Eagles twice came from behind to secure a 2-2 draw in Deventer.
Ronald Koeman's side were within touching distance of a fourth successive league win after Lex Immers scored on 63 minutes - Mawouna Amevor (48) had earlier cancelled out Stefan De Vrij's 17th-minute opener - but Kolder pooped up late.
Vitesse came from two goals down to beat Heerenveen 3-2 thanks to their on-loan Chelsea duo Lucas Piazon and Patrick van Aanholt.

Piazon pulled a goal back on 54 minutes before his long-range free-kick evaded everyone and crept in at the far post to level the match with 18 minutes left. Van Aanholt then completed the comeback in injury-time.
FC Utrecht were the biggest winners of the day as they beat NAC Breda 4-2.
Yassine Ayoub and Danny Verbeek traded first-half goals before Jens Toornstra fired Utrecht back ahead on 63 minutes.
