However Go Ahead Eagles drew level on 22 minutes when Marnix Kolder capitalised on some poor defending to fire past Nick Marsman from close range.

Winger Jesus Corona was brought into the Twente starting line up and the Mexican restored the home side’s lead with a fine run and finish, which saw him skip past his marker before lifting the ball into the far corner of the net.

A minute into the second half Twente were awarded a penalty after Corona was tripped by Giliano Wijnaldum, but Erik Cummings stopped Castaignos spot kick.

The miss was not to cost Twente dearly as Go Ahead failed to find a way back into the match, and the home side held on for their first win of the season.
