NEC simply won the catch-up match against FC Den Bosch in the Kitchen Champion Division on Tuesday.
FC Den Bosch was beaten 4-1 in the Goffert.
NEC is therefore more firmly nestled in sixth place in the ranking.
Participation in the play-offs at the end of the season seems almost certain for coach Rogier Meijer's team.
Javier Vet played an important part in the victory of the Nijmegen team.
The midfielder already scored in the fifth minute and doubled the lead by scoring within fifteen seconds in the second half.
Vet then also had a share in the 3-0 of Elayis Tavsan with an assist, who outwitted goalkeeper Wouter van der Steen with a beautiful curl.
Cas Odenthal made it 4-0 with a header eight minutes before the end.
Paco van Moorsel provided the only ray of hope for FC Den Bosch, which last weekend managed to win against Jong FC Utrecht for the first time since September 22.
With a long shot in the intersection, he scored the best goal of the afternoon in the final phase.
FC Dordrecht can take a greater distance from FC Den Bosch later tonight.
The number nineteen of the Kitchen Champion Division plays against Young FC Utrecht at 6.45 pm.
