Heracles Almelo missed the chance to move joint second in the Eredivisie after being held to a 0-0 draw by Excelsior.

her excHeracles have been imperious in their Polman Stadion so far this season, but it was visitors Excelsior who took command in the first half. Striker Tom van Weert passed up two excellent chances to open the scoring, while Jurgen Mattheij and Bradley Kuwas also came close.

After the break the visitors still looked the more likely to snatch victory, while not even the returning Oussama Tannane could breathe live into the Heracles attack, with the winger sending a volley just over the bar late on.

The point sees Heracles move joint third with Feyenoord, while Excelsior stay 11th.
