FC Twente battled for a 1-1 draw at Utrecht after having Michal Sadilek sent off in the second half.

Utrecht boss Ron Jans was hoping for a good result against his former side and he was delighted after 23 minutes when Oscar Fraulo volleyed in a cross to put the hosts in front.

However, the lead only lasted until the 28th minute when Twente were awarded a penalty for a handball. Sem Steijn made it 1-1 from the spot.

Halfway through the second half, Twente were reduced to ten men when Michal Sadilek was shown his second yellow card for a late challenge on Victor Jansen.

Utrecht dominated after the red but they could not find a way past Lars Unnerstall and Twente held on for a point.

Utrecht is now in 17th while Twente is 4th.
