FC Emmen netted a late equaliser to hold 10-man Heracles Almelo to a 1-1 draw.

After their 5-1 loss to Utrecht last weekend, Heracles had something to prove and they took the lead in the 17th minute. Maximilian Rossmann headed a corner across goal for Adrian Dalmau to nod in.

After the opener, Emmen became the stronger side and Jafar Arias sent a header straight at Heracles keeper Janis Blaswich. Just before the break, Heracles were reduced to ten-men when Tim Breukers was shown his second yellow card.

Emmen searched for an equaliser after the break but had to wait until the 85th minute to find one. Substitute Sven Braken was the hosts hero with a header.

Heracles held on to claim a point which keeps them in seventh while Emmen are 16th.
