The game then came to life and chances fell for both sides in an exciting end. Willem II keeper Kostas Lamprou had to be at his best to deny Mikhail Rosheuvel, Tom van Hyfte and Roul Brouwers, while at the other end Haye came close to finding a winner for the home side but his strike was well saved by Benjamin van Leer.

The point sees Willem II rise to 11th while Roda JC’s wait for a win goes on in 13th.
