Tim Janssen bagged a brace for NEC Nijmegen but it was not enough for his struggling side to secure a first win in six games after VVV Venlo fought back to salvage a 2-2 draw.

Janssen found the net in each half to establish a 2-0 lead for the hosts but VVV refused to lay down and pulled one back through Leon Kantelberg before Sandro Calbro snatched a dramatic equaliser seven minutes from time.

VVV´s reward for a battling display is a four-point gap to the relegation zone while 14th-placed NEC move a point clear of the bottom three.
