Almere City suffered an expensive loss of points on Friday in the remainder of the halted snow duel with Roda JC.

In the remaining 23 minutes in Kerkrade, the Flevolanders did not score.

The game was stopped after 67 minutes on Monday due to a heavy snow shower in South Limburg, so that the lines in the Parkstad Limburg Stadium were no longer visible.

Although Roda employees had cleared the snow above the lines not much later, the players did not return to the field.

Referee Ingmar Oostrom could not guarantee their safety.

In the remainder, Roda JC was the most dangerous team on Friday, but the Limburgers could not express the predominance in the score.

Almere City was not involved at all.

Due to the loss of points, Almere City failed to take over second place from De Graafschap, a place that leads to direct promotion to the Eredivisie at the end of the season.

The Flevolanders now have one point less than the 'Super farmers'.

Later that day there are six more matches in the Kitchen Champion Division on the program: NAC Breda-Jong FC Utrecht (6 p.m.), FC Den Bosch-SC Cambuur, Excelsior Rotterdam-NEC, FC Eindhoven-Jong PSV, FC Volendam-Helmond Sport and Young Ajax-TOP Oss (all 8 p.m.).
