The Rotterdam side are now two points clear of PSV Eindhoven, while Groningen slipped one place to 14th.
Vitesse Arnhem`s title aspirations appear to have all-but disappeared, after being hammered 3-0 at RKC Waalwijk.
The home side are looking to claim a European spot and their hopes were boosted thanks to an early goal from Iwan Redan.
The remainder of the first-half was fairly even, but RKC doubled their advantage shortly before the hour when John van Loenhout slotted home.
Vitesse tried desperately to haul themselves into the game, but Rick Hoogendorp (pictured) sealed the points for RKC with a late goal.
Roda JC continued their impressive run of form, with a 2-1 home win over struggling RBC Roosendaal.
Mark Luypers put the home side in front on 22 minutes, and Gabor Torma doubled the advantage on 38 minutes.
Luypers turned sinner in the second-half, being given a red card, and Roda had to sweat late on when Henk Vos reduced the arrears.
Utrecht and NEC Nijmegen played out a 1-1 draw.
Igor Glusevic gave the home side the lead on the hour, but Gorgi Hristov saved a point for NEC with a finish ten minutes later.
Ajax had to come from behind to claim a home point against Willem II.
Jatto Ceesay opened the scoring on 23 minutes, but Willem`s hopes of a win were ended when Joris Mathijsen put through his own net on the hour mark.
