NEC failed to win the home game against Telstar on Monday.
The number six of the Kitchen Champion Division did not get further than a 1-1 draw in the Goffert.
NEC took the lead at the end of a disappointing first half with the necessary luck.
Telstar midfielder Lesley Bakker, who made his debut in the base, worked the ball into his own goal.
Telstar recovered well and ended up on the same level between the hailstorms in the second half.
The 34-year-old Glynor Plet scored with a targeted header and thus already scored his seventeenth goal of the season.
Despite the loss of points, NEC seems almost certain to participate in the play-offs.
The team of trainer Rogier Meijer has an eight point lead over number eight Roda JC, which may still be left out.
On Easter Monday there is a full round of play in the Kitchen Champion Division on the program.
Most matches are played at 2.30 pm, Roda JC and Almere City close the 32nd round at 4.45 pm.
