Van Persie scores corker as Feyenoord beat FC Utrecht

Robin van Persie scored his sixth goal in 10 games for Feyenoord as they beat Utrecht 3-1 and consolidate fourth place in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Feyenoord are playing purely for pride as the Dutch Eredivisie season draws to a close, and they are putting together their best run of the season. Nicolai Jorgensen's early goal against FC Utrecht set them on their way to a sixth straight win, although all they can hope for is a fourth place finish.

Although it was looking in doubt after a bizarre piece of refereeing - Cyriel Dessers was clearly offisde when he tapped the ball home but the official, a Mr Nijhuis, decided otherwise - it was 1-1 after 30 minutes.

The return of Feyenoord legend Robin Van Persie has coincided with a return to form for last season's champions, and his goal was one for the purists, a perfect chest down and the volley to finish. It was the 34-year-old's sixth goal in 10 games, seven of those as a substitute.

Feyenoord sealed the game in the 69th minute - Sam Larsson heading home Jens Toornstra's cross.

The win leaves the club stranded - eight points behind third placed AZ Alkmar in the final Champions LEague spot with three games to play.
