FC Volendam climbed off the bottom of the Eredivisie with a vital 3-0 home win against Sparta Rotterdam.
Goals from Rowin Van Zaanen (33) and Paul de Lange (56) put the home side in command and any faint hopes Sparta had disappeared when Yuri Rose was sent off on 87 minutes.
Gerson Sheotahul wrapped up victory seconds later with Volendam's third goal after a blunder from Sparta goalkeeper Cassio Ramos.
Volendam started brightly and Van Zaanen had already threatened before opening the scoring.
He collected Jack Tuijp's pass from the left and fired a shot past Ramos into the bottom corner from the left-hand side of the area.
Sparta felt they should have had a penalty five minutes before half-time when Rose appeared to be fouled in the area but the referee waved play on.
The visitors also created the first chance of the second period when Joey Godee and Edouard Duplan combined well for Duplan to shoot from the edge of the penalty area, but his effort flew just past the post.
And they were made to pay shortly after when Volendam were awarded a penalty after Sheotahul was brought down in the area by Ruud Knol.
De Lange stepped up to take the penalty and sent Ramos the wrong way.
It was almost 3-0 on 66 minutes but Dominique van Dijk's cross was headed off the bar by Tim Bakens.
Rose then received his marching orders as time ran out and Volendam made absolutely certain of the win when Ramos' weak clearance went straight to Sheotahul on the edge of the area and he found the top corner.
