  • 29 September 2011 Holman the hero -

    Socceroo Brett Holman was the hero for AZ as they claimed a 2-1 win over Feyenoord thanks to his 85th-minute header on Sunday.

    The result sees AZ – the 2008-09 Dutch champions – move into top spot ahead of Twente who drew with Ajax 1-1 on Saturday. Otman Bakkal had put Feyenoord ahead on 36 minutes, before Rasmus Elm levelled for AZ with a free-kick on the hour mark.

    AZ pushed for the winner with Holman finding space before firing a shot into the side-netting, but he soon hit the back of the net on 85 minutes. The goal came after Dirk Marcellis' run down the right wing, with the full-back whipping in a back-post cross for Holman to head home.

    First-half goals from Pontus Wernbloom and Jozy Altidore had AZ in control, before Holman's clever cross found Maarten Martens who netted the third on 55 minutes.
