PEC Zwolle recovered from conceding an early goal to earn a 1-1 draw with Heerenveen at the Abe Lenstra Stadion.

heepec kAfter only four minutes the home side had the lead with Sam Larsson racing through the PEC Zwolle defence before smashing a shot past Kevin Begois from the edge of the area.

Heerenveen pushed for a second before the break but Begois stopped efforts from Larsson and Branco van den Boomen, while Luciano Slagveer and Mitchell Te Vrede also passed up good opportunities.

In the second half PEC Zwolle woke up, with Lars Veldwijk coming close after racing through one on one with Begois, while Wouter Marinus struck the bar. Eventually the equaliser did come on the hour mark as Veldwijk converted Sheraldo Becker’s cross.

Neither side could find a winner in the last half hour and had to settle for a point, with PEC Zwolle staying third, while Heerenveen climb temporarily to 6th.
