After years in oblivion, the former Super Eagles handler led the Fortuna Sittard Stadion outfit to their first silverware in 23 years

Sunday Oliseh guided Fortuna Sittard to a comfortable 2-1 win over Ajax Jong in Friday’s Dutch second division encounter.

Djibril Dianessy’s first-half brace was enough to guide Fortuna to their seventh successive league win as Darren Sidoel’s 73rd-minute goal stood as consolation for the visitors.

The victory crowned Fortuna Sittard as winners of ‎the second period in the Eerste Divisie - their first silverware since 1995 after finishing as league leaders at the end of matchday 20.

The Fortuna Sittard Stadion outfit maintained a fine run of eight wins and one defeat between matchday 12 and 20 in the second period of the Jupiler League.

Sunday Oliseh’s side now sits at the summit of the Eerste Divisie log with 44 points from 20 games and they visit Dordrecht for their next league game on Friday, January 19.
