Ajax´s first defeat of the season, a 3-1 home reverse on Sunday at the hands of NAC Breda, meant they were unable to overtake champions PSV Eindhoven at the top of the Dutch Eredivisie.

PSV´s 1-0 victory over De Graafschap on Saturday had put them top of the league at the expense of the Amsterdam club and Ajax failed to pick up the gauntlet 24 hours later.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar´s stoppage-time consolation goal was all that Ajax fans had to cheer after second-half goals for NAC from Matthew Amoah and substitute Ahmed Ammi sealed the win for the visitors who had led through a first-half own goal from Jan Vertonghen.
