Utrecht came from 2-0 down to earn a 2-2 draw at Heracles Almelo. 

The home side came racing out of the traps as they looked to keep their playoff hopes alive and were 2-0 up after only five minutes. Brandley Kuwas fired in the opener in the first minute before Jaroslav Navratil doubled the lead.

Utrecht barely threatened but in the 67th minute, they pulled one back through Sander van de Streek, who arrowed a strike into the bottom corner. Six minutes before the end, Mark van der Maarel capitalised on a Bram Castro error to fire in an equaliser.

Heracles can now forget the European playoffs and sit in 11th. Utrecht are 5th and can start preparing for the playoffs.
