Oliseh Leads Fortuna Sittard to Clinch First Title in 23 Years
Sunday Oliseh guided Fortuna Sittard to a comfortable 2-1 win over Ajax Jong in Friday’s Dutch second division encounter.
Djibril Dianessy’s first-half brace was enough to guide Fortuna to their seventh successive league win as Darren Sidoel’s 73rd-minute goal stood as consolation for the visitors.
The victory crowned Fortuna Sittard as winners of the second period in the Eerste Divisie – their first silverware since 1995 after finishing as league leaders at the end of matchday 20.
The Fortuna Sittard Stadion outfit maintained a fine run of eight wins and one defeat between matchday 12 and 20 in the second period of the Jupiler League.
