It has been clear for months that PEC Zwolle is very good for the Kitchen Champion segment. Zwolle has been at the top of the classification for a long time and the question was not if the club would be promoted, but when.
It was actually possible last weekend, but the city of Almere spoiled the party at the last minute. The number three was trailing 2-0 to ADO but turned the match into a 2-3 win. A week later, PEC went up after all by drawing with Almere, of all places.
Van den belt
Furthermore, it appears that the promotional event has been postponed again twenty minutes before the end. After the match was briefly interrupted by the Thunder, Almere City took the lead through Steje Resink. But this progress did not last long. Thomas van den Bilt scored the equalizer with a header.
The defensive midfielder will move to Feyenoord next summer and is the revelation of this season’s Kitchen Champion division. With 16 goals, he has already secured promotion to the Eredivisie.
The next doctoral candidate is also on the way. Because no one doubts that Heracles will return to the Eredivisie within a year. Herrasers are three points behind BEC Zwolle and ten points ahead of Almere City with four matches remaining.
A third doctoral candidate can still appear in the qualifiers. This includes some sleeping giants like Willem II, VVV and NAC Breda. They can decide between themselves and the Eredivisie’s No. 16 who will play at the highest level next season.
