Roda JC defeated VVV Venlo 4-1 to keep their very slim hopes of escaping the bottom three alive. 

The visitors were lively from the start and took the lead in the 22nd minute when Jannes Vansteenkiste cut inside from the left before finding the net with a great strike.

However, VVV Venlo equalised ten minutes later through Torino Hunte, who was left unmarked at the back-post to slot past Hidde Jurjus.

Adil Auassar rounded off a fine team move two minutes into the second half to restore Roda JC’s lead. Dani Schahin tapped in a third nine minutes later before Mario Engels sealed the victory late on.

Roda JC remain three points behind NAC who occupy 15th spot, but due to goal difference, it is unlikely that they will escape the bottom three next weekend. VVV are safe in 14th.
