Groningen failed to take fourth place after being held to a 0-0 draw by Roda JC.

gro rodaThe home side’s form in November suggested Groningen would be heavy favourites on Sunday, but Edwin van de Looi’s side barely got going in a game of few chances.

Roda JC had the better of the first half and minutes into the second period only a great save from Sergio Padt denied Mitchell Paulissen the opening goal.

Groningen then created their first chance of the game but Albert Rusnak’s strike was tipped over by¬†Benjamin van Leer, who then denied Hedwiges Maduro from the resulting corner.

The draw sees Groningen move fifth and one point behind Heracles in 4th, while Roda JC remain 14th.
