Fortuna Sittard coach Sunday Oliseh is powering his Dutch second division team out of relegation trouble after a 2-2 draw at FC Dordrecht.

Fortuna Sittard are now 17th on the league table with 20 points from 23 games.

On Friday, the Oliseh-led team came back from 2-0 to earn a point in the game.

And the former Nigeria coach maintained survival in the Dutch second-tier league remains the target.

"We do not say we go to the top of the table. Let's be realistic. At present, the main purpose is not to be relegated,” he told the club’s website.

“We do have new players, but only goalkeeper Santos has been fully fit.

“In addition, we have worked on the mental aspect, for the last 10 weeks of 2016 for the players."
