uth aThe match was originally abandoned at 0-0 after 20 minutes in November due to heavy rain, so the match started from where the clock finished, and became a 70 minute match.

The home side started the game the brighter side, but missed chances through Erik Falkenburg, and Joey Godee, as both sides went into half time level.

Mark Uth opened the scoring for Heracles on 74 minutes with a brilliant individual effort, with the striker rampaging through three defenders before flicking the ball into the bottom corner.

Jop van der Linden hit the woodwork from a free-kick as the home side searched for the equaliser, which finally came in the 88th minute.

A pinpoint cross from the right hand side, was headed into the top corner by Erik Falkenburg to rescue his side a late point.

The point sees neither team climb the table, with Go Ahead Eagles still sitting 13th, while Heracles linger just above the drop zone in 15th.
