TILBURG, March 12 (Eredivisie) - Den Bosch may have sacked coach Henk Wisman last week but they still look doomed to Gouden Gids Divisie football after losing 2-1 at Willem II.
Interim coaches Jan van Grinsven and Wim van der Horst failed to produce the miracle their team needed and relegation is looking increasingly inevitable.
Den Bosch's Petre Uneken had already been dismissed when Koen van de Laak gave Den Bosch a first-half lead from the penalty spot.
However, late goals from Hans Denissen and Tom Caluwe won the match for Willem II.
Willem II started well and in the first minute Christophe Lepoynt fired wide.
With 12 minutes gone, Uneken got his red card for a professional foul when he tugged at the shirt of a goalbound opponent.
Three minutes later and Den Bosch's Mounir Biyadat saw his free-kick go wide after a foul on Jochen Janssen had created a dangerous position.
Van de Laak should have opened the scoring after 24 minutes when he was played in by Mourad Mghizrat.
He had two chances to score but his first hit the leg of goalkeeper Oscar Moens and the second went into the side-netting.
Nine minutes before the interval and it was 1-0 to the visitors when Van de Laak converted a penalty after Moens had fouled Ferne Snoyl.
It was a deserved lead but in the second half the team from Tilburg started to turn on the pressure and they duly got their reward.
With 16 minutes remaining they equalised when Denissen's left-footed shot beat Kris Mampaey after a corner from Martijn Reuser.
The winner came after 86 minutes when Denissen played in a corner and an unmarked Caluwe scored with his right foot.
