STORY: Heracles Almelo held Eredivisie leaders Ajax to a 0-0 draw at the Amersterdam Arena on Tuesday (January 26).

Neither team took many chances in the first half which saw poor defending by Ajax.

Daley Sinkgraven of Ajax had the best shot on goal but goalkeeper Bram Castro made a straightforward save.

The second half saw an early chance by Riechedly Bazoer of Ajax but his left-footed shot went straight to Castro.

A later chance came with a fine cross by Mitchell Dijks but Lasse Schoene leaped too late and his header went over the bar.

Heracles Almelo had few serious chances with shots flying wide of the goal but their defenders worked hard.

The point apiece makes no change at the top of the Eredivisie table with Ajax first with 48 points, PSV second with 44. Feyenoord is third with 36 and Heracles Almelo fourth with 34, ahead of Utrecht.
