Heracles Almelo remained the front-runner for fourth spot in the Eredivisie after holding Vitesse Arnhem to a 1-1 draw.

rashica vit herThe top three seem to be pulling away from the rest of the Eredivisie, but the race for fourth spot is extremely tight with only two points separating Heracles in 4th to NEC in 9th going into the match in Almelo on Sunday.

Heracles created the best chance of the first half with Oussama Tannane forcing Eloy Room to tip his shot onto the post. However the midfielder did finally get the better of the goalkeeper on 65 minutes when his low effort nestled into the bottom corner to give Heracles the lead.

Immediately after the goal Valeri Qazaishvili had an excellent opportunity to equalise but his shot was straight at Bram Castro. Milot Rashica then did what his teammate couldn’t on 75 minutes as he raced onto Qazaishvili’s pass before rifling a shot into the top corner.

The point each means Heracles move clear in 4th from Groningen, while Vitesse climb to sixth.
