Goalkeeper Brad Jones continued his decent start with NEC Nijmegen, completing a full shift in a 1-1 draw with De Graafschap.
Jones conceded in the 11th minute but a late equaliser from Marcel Ritzmaier saw NEC claim a point and stay fifth in the Eredivisie.
And former Brisbane Roar youth player Kenneth Dougall has helped Sparta Rotterdam extend their unbeaten run to 12 matches in Netherlands' second tier.
With Dougall playing a full match in defence on Sunday (Monday morning AEDT), the Eerste Divisie leaders maintained their seven point lead at the top of the table with a 3-1 win over VVV Venlo.
Sparta haven't lost since the end of October when they dumped out of the KNVB Beker, while their last league defeat came at the hands of second-placed NAC Breda on October 23.
Dougall, 22, who left the Roar in 2013 and arrived in Netherlands around a year later, has played 20 matches for Sparta in 2015-16, starting all of them.
