Excelsior are still in a battle at the bottom after losing 1-0 at VVV Venlo.

The start of the game saw both teams have chances but fail to break the deadlock. Marcus Edwards was denied by Lars Unnerstall while at the other end, Alessandro Damen kept out a shot from Johnatan Opoku.

Two minutes into stoppage time in the first-half, VVV netted the opener. Peter van Ooijen’s free kick found Opoku who beat two markers to score.

VVV failed to kill the game in the second half and that built Excelsior’s confidence that they could find an equaliser. However, Jordy Schouten fired their best chance wide.

The three points mean VVV are ninth while Excelsior are 14th and only three points above the drop zone.
