Twente took the lead through Haris Vuckic in the first half but missed several chances to kill the game and were eventually punished by Dani Schahin.

Verbeek said, ”After we scored we had a massive chance to make it 2-0 but we hit the post that appeared to galvanize Roda JC who went on to play with nothing to lose.

”I do not feel that we conceded in the 88th minute due to lack of confidence. I thought we played well in the first-half and we created two or three good chances.

”After hitting the post at 1-0 up we stopped playing football and started to defend deeper. We must ensure that we go on to build on our leads in future matches.

”I have been at FC Twente for three months and I feel that in the run up to the winter break we have shown more stability and have not given too many chances away but we must play better football in order to score goals and win matches.

”We dominated the match at times tonight and this result must give us confidence going forward ”.
