Ajax's charge towards a third successive Eredivisie title suffered a slight setback tonight after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Heerenveen.
A seventh successive victory would have seen the Amsterdam club move eight points clear of second-placed Vitesse Arnhem, who face a tough trip to fourth-placed Feyenoord on Sunday, and they looked on course to do that when Viktor Fischer put them ahead after 26 minutes.
However, in-form Heerenveen, who had won six of their previous seven games, battled back and Alfred Finnbogason's 53rd-minute equaliser earned them a share of the spoils.
