Vitesse Arnhem failed to move fourth in the Eredivisie after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Excelsior.

excvitdhdhFeyenoord’s failing’s recently has given Vitesse and the sides around them hope of challenging for the top three this season, and Rob Maas’s side could have moved to within a point of the Rotterdam club if they beat Excelsior on Saturday.

However, from the start Vitesse struggled to break down Excelsior, with the home side reduced to efforts from range, while Filip Kurto denied Renato Ibarra after a one-two with Marvelous Nakamba.

The home fans made their feelings heard when the half time whistle sounded, but there was to be no improvement in the second half, with Excelsior once again repelling the limp Vitesse attack. The away side could have even caused an upset with Tom van Weert, and Henrico Drost coming close to giving Excelsior the win.

Vitesse stay 6th after the draw, while Excelsior are 15th.
