FC Twente made it five games without a victory as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Heerenveen.

Twente went into the game looking to end a four-game winless run, while Heerenveen were brimming with confidence after their 3-0 victory over Feyenoord in midweek.

The hosts started brightly and the first big chance fell to Danilo, but the striker pulled his shot just wide of the post. Luciano Narsingh also put a strike off target after cutting inside from the right.

The first-half was one way traffic but Heerenveen managed to hold on. Their only effort of the half came just before the break with Joey Veerman’s effort blocked by Kik Pierie.

After the break, Twente remained in control and they finally found the net through Queensy Menig, but it was ruled out for an offside in the build-up.

The point means Twente sits seventh while Heerenveen are ninth.
