The hosts had also failed to score in their last six matches and their lack of confidence was clear in the first half as they struggled to create any chances, while at the other end NEC were also impotent as fans endured a dull first 45 minutes.

After the break, NEC took charge with Mikael Dyrestam sending a strike wide of the goal while Benjamin van Leer had to tip Kévin Mayi’s shot over the bar.
