AMSTERDAM (AP) -- AZ Alkmaar's lead at the top of Dutch league was reduced to one point on Sunday after it was held to a 0-0 draw at home to NAC Breda and title rival Ajax beat ADO The Hague 2-0 away.

Jody Lukoki and Jan Vertonghen scored for defending champion Ajax as it celebrated the club's 112th anniversary.

Another title challenger, PSV Eindhoven, routed SC Heerenveen 5-1 in new coach Philip Cocu's first league game in charge.

Nils Roseler and Sekou Cisse scored a goal to steer Feyenoord to a 2-0 win over FC Twente, denting Steve McClaren's title hopes.

AZ leads the standings with 53 points and Ajax has 52, one more than PSV. Twente, which dropped to fourth with 48 points, has played one game less.
