Bam-Bam: on target in Holland
Both goals came inside the opening seven minutes, with the hosts taking the lead with their first oppourtunity, after two minutes, when Charlie van den Ouweland scored. Town pulled a goal back just five minutes later though, when Richard Naylor got on the end of a Jamie Peters free-kick.

Ian Westlake then went close to giving the Blues the lead, when his header was cleared off the line just before the interval.

At half-time Lewis Price was one of three substitutes introduced, replacing Shane Supple. Darren Currie and Billy Clarke also entered the fray.

After 77 minutes Jason De Vos was brought on for Sam Pakin to bolster the attack and Town thought they had a winner but for Billy Clarke's 82nd minute effort being ruled out.

It was the Blues' third consecutive 1-1 draw that completed their tour of Holland and Belgium. They step up their preparations ahead of the new season with the visit of recently demoted Lazio on Friday, July 28.
