Less than a week after joining Groningen on a season-long loan from Huddersfield Town, Australia’s Jason Davidson influenced proceedings with an assist on debut in his side’s heartbreaking 4-3 defeat to FC Twente. 

In a bid to find form and re-establish himself in Ange Postecoglou’s Socceroos squad, the move to the Eredivisie outfit comes after a difficult two seasons in England.

After Enes Unal’s first-half hat-trick allowed Twente to take a comfortable lead, Groningen returned in reinvigorating fashion to tie the match up at 3-3 with 10 minutes to play. 



Davidson played an integral part in the comeback, swinging in a devilish cross from the left that ultimately found Oussama Idrissi to hit home and reduce the deficit to 3-2. 

In the end, the comeback wasn’t to be as Jari Oosterwijk’s 91st minute winner proved the final blow in what was a classic encounter. 



The defeat to FC Twente becomes the third loss in as many games for Groningen and leaves them rooted to the bottom of the Eredivisie table.

Meanwhile, David Williams has continued his rich vein of form scoring his fourth goal in as many starts for Hungarian side Haladas. 



Haladas is now up to third on the table, just two points off first placed Vasas Budapest.
