Lennart Thy scored a late penalty as PEC Zwolle earned a 1-1 draw at Fortuna Sittard.

It was a real relegation battle in Limburg with Fortuna sitting in 16th spot, which is a relegation playoff place. PEC Zwolle went into the game 15th.

The visitors were the better side in the first half, but Vito van Crooy and Kenneth Paal were both off-target with efforts, while Mike van Duinen was denied by Alexei Koselev.

Neither side dominated the opening stages of the second half but in the 70th minute, Fortuna took the lead. Mark Diemers strike was parried but George Cox was on hand to net on the rebound.

That seemed like it was going to be the winning goal but in the final minute, VAR spotted a foul on Pelle Clement in the box. Lennart Thy made no mistake to earn his side a point.
