Jizz Hornkamp scored a 90th-minute equaliser as Heerenveen came from behind to earn a 3-3 draw with Excelsior.

Excelsior started brightly and took the lead in the 12th minute through Ali Messaoud who got ahead of his marker to tap a Jeffry Fortes cross into the net.

Mitchell van Bergen made his first start for Heerenveen and he came close to an equaliser but his strike was well kept out by Sonny Stevens. At the other end, Tottenham Hotspur loanee Marcus Edwards was denied by Warner Hahn.

Before the break, Excelsior doubled their lead when Luigi Bruins found space before firing a strike past Hahn and into the far corner.

Four minutes into the second half, Dave Bulthuis headed one back for Heerenveen but moments later, Messaoud found the net with an excellent finish to make it 3-1 to Excelsior.

On the hour mark, Morten Thorsby headed in a corner to make it 3-2 and in the dying moments, substitute Jizz Hornkamp curled an excellent strike into top corner to earn Heerenveen a point.

Heerenveen are 11th while Excelsior sit 12th.
