Roda JC have moved up to 16th after earning a 1-1 draw at Heerenveen. 

Heerenveen dominated the opening stages of the game with Martin Ødegaard thrilling the crowd with some nice touches and a strike that tested Hidde Jurjus. The midfielder also won a free kick which was hit against the bar by Stijn Schaars.

However, on 35 minutes, Ødegaard lost possession which led to Jorn Vancamp crossing the ball for Maeky Ngombo to head in the opener for Roda JC.

Heerenveen went looking for the equaliser which eventually came in the 74th minute as Henk Veerman set up Arber Zeneli to fire past Jurjus.

The hosts looked for a winner, but Roda JC held on for a point which moves them above FC Twente. Heerenveen remain 9th.
