A late Jay-Roy Grot equaliser earned VVV Venlo a 1-1 draw at Fortuna Sittard.

Fortuna Sittard went into the game knowing that a win would move them seven points clear of the bottom three with only four games left.

After only 11 minutes the hosts took the lead when Andrij Novakovich slotted in on the rebound after Lars Unnerstall denied Balic.

VVV almost equalised before the break but Danny Post was unlucky to see his effort come back off the post.

The visitors controlled the game after the break but the equaliser was not found. In the 75th minute, Fortuna thought they had sealed the win when Lazorus Lamprou netted but it was disallowed for offside.

VVV went straight down the other end and Jay-Roy Grot made it 1-1 with a deflected effort.

Neither side could find a winner before the end which means Fortuna remains 14th while VVV are one spot ahead.
