Despite playing most of the game with only ten men, Fortuna Sittard held ADO Den Haag to a 0-0 draw.

Both sides went into the game level on points and still not safe from the relegation battle.

Fortuna made the brighter start and Robert Zwinkels had to make a good save to deny Lazarus Lamprou. However, in the 32nd minute, José Rodríguez suffered a moment of madness and struck Shaquille Pinas with an elbow, resulting in a straight red card.

With a man extra, ADO Den Haag took control, with both Nasser El Khayati and Lex Immers coming close to breaking the deadlock before half-time.

In the second half, ADO Den Haag struggled to create chances and the closes they came to a winner was an Erik Falkenburg effort that came back off the bar.

The point each means both sides are still only five points above the bottom three.
