Substitute Cyriel Dessers struck late on to earn Utrecht a 2-2 draw at Heerenveen. 

The visitors went into the game in top form after the 5-1 win over Vitesse last weekend and they took the initiative from the start with Dario Dumic firing wide early on.

In the 17th minute, Utrecht took the lead through Mark van der Maarel, who shot in on the turn after the ball landed at his feet from a corner.

Heerenveen equalised in the 33rd minute as Morten Thorsby fired past David Jensen after good work from both Denzel Dumfries and Reza Ghoochannejhad.

Both sides traded chances early in the second half before the home side went 2-1 up in the 76th minute, through Ghoochannejhad who fired past Jensen after latching onto a throw-in.

Dumfries almost made it 3-1 but he was denied by Jensen. Utrecht then went down the other end and substitute Cyriel Dessers found the equaliser for Utrecht with a deflected effort.

Utrecht remain fourth and are now three points ahead of Feyenoord while Heerenveen are 10th.
