Excelsior for the second time in four days were involved in a 0-0 draw this time against Go Ahead Eagles.

00 tftGo Ahead have struggled to score goals lately with only two in their last six games, and their wastefulness in front of goal was evident in the first half as Wesley Verhoek past up a good opportunity to turn their possession into a lead.

The best opportunity of the first half fell to the visitors, but Tom van Weert’s shot came back off the post after the striker capitalised on a mistake by Jop van der Linden.

After the break Go Ahead Eagles dominated and new striker Glynor Plet had a great chance to instantly make himself a hero for the home side, but he could only fire wide when well placed. Excelsior contained the pressure from Go Ahead and both had to settle for a point.

Go Ahead Eagles remain 14th while Excelsior are one place above.
