Eindhoven, Netherlands ( - PSV Eindhoven extended its lead atop the Eredivisie to 14 points after claiming a 3-0 victory over lowly Dordrecht at the Philips Stadion on Sunday.

Kazim Kazim-Richards netted a penalty kick and Jens Toornstra and Lex Immers netted a goal apiece to complete the rally.

Valeri Kazaishvili scored at the death to lift Vitesse to a 2-1 win at Twente on Sunday while Heerenveen cruised to a 3-1 victory over Gronigen.
