Two minutes later it was 2-0 with Antonia getting on the end of a left win cross to head past Filip Kurto, despite the goalkeeper getting a hand on it.

Before the half hour mark Mitchell Donald put a huge chance wide, but a minute later he headed in a cross from the right to bring the score back to 2-1.

Go Ahead Eagles then restored their two goal lead on 34 minutes, with Xander Houtkoop ghosting in at the back post to finish a cross low past Kurto.

Early in the second half, Ard van Peppen was shown a red card to condemn a terrible night for the hosts.

Erik Falkenburg added the fourth goal on 55 minutes with a header at the back post, while Marc Hocher hit the post for Roda JC late on.

Roda JC were on good form which saw them beat PSV twice and draw with Groningen last week, but that has come to a shocking end. Go Ahead were clinical in front of goal, and the win lifts them up to 11th.
