Tim Sparv: Scored the winner for Groningen against ADO on Friday night
FC Groningen picked up their first Eredivisie victory of the season after a surprise 1-0 victory at ADO Den Haag.
Tim Sparv's first-half strike was enough to secure the win for the visitors, as they inflicted the first defeat of the season on Maurice Steijn's side.
Groningen had just a point to their name from three games prior to kick-off, and remain one point behind ADO despite their success.
FC Twente top the table ahead of the rest of the weekend's action, and are the only side in the division with maximum points.
