Twente are still in the race for 2nd place after thumping bottom side Roda JC 3-0 at the Grolsch Veste Stadion.

ebecilio tweRoda JC went into the game with only one win in their last eleven games, and they knew a defeat would mean they are definitely going to finish the season in the bottom three.

Sadly for Roda fans, Twente began on form, and Kyle Ebecilio slammed the post from the right hand side of the box in the opening five minutes. ┬áThe opening goal finally came after eleven minutes, but Roda were once again left cursing their luck as Torgeir Borven’s initial effort was parried by keeper Filip Kurto before rebounding off the Twente striker, and into the net.

On 25 minutes Twente added their second, and it was Borven once again with a nice finish from inside the box after Roda defender Henk Dijkhuizen failed to clear.

Twente were rampant but had to wait until the 53rd minute to add their third goal with Ebecilio smashing the ball into the net from just inside the box.

There could have been further Twente goals, but a combination of poor finishing, and good defending limited the home side to a three goal win against a very poor Roda JC side.

Twente move one point behind Feyenoord, who face PSV on Sunday, and with two games left the race for 2nd will go to the wire. Roda JC now have two games to catch NEC Nijmegen and avoid automatic relegation.
