Bartholomew Ogbeche netted and tasted defeat on his return from suspension as Cambuur slumped to a 2-1 loss to NAC Breda on Friday night.
The 30-year-old who was sent off in the league match against Feyenoord started and finished upfront for the Yellow-Blues.
His joyous return however ended in heartache as his team weren’t good enough for at least a point.
Ogbeche’s late strike could however not earn his side a point as they lost by one goal margin.
The former PSG star who was playing his first game in two weeks converted from close range in what seemed to be the final action of the match at the Rat Verlegh Stadion.
Adnane Tighadouini’s 64th-minute goal – NAC’s first in 566 minutes on home soil in the top flight – set them on the way to victory.
Tighadouini came to the fore again three minutes from time, taking his tally for the season to nine in all competitions, with Ogbeche’s injury-time strike proving a mere consolation for the visitors.
Henk de Jong’s side are now placed 10th in the league and two places off the final Europa League play off spot.
Ogbeche and team mates will next face Heracles in the league.
