Twente move up to third in the Eredivisie table after a comprehensive 4-1 defeat of Excelsior on home soil.
Sharbel Touma put them in the mood for goals in the 22nd minute and just shy of the half hour mark, their lead was extended courtesy of Otman Bakkal.
There was no improvement for Excelsior in the second period either, with Orlando Engelaar and Blais N'Fufo adding their names to the scoresheet before Jarda Simr grabbed scant consolation in the final minute.
Rob van Dijk endured a day he will be keen to forget, as his own goal in the 66th minute saw RKC Waalwijk fall to a home defeat against NAC Breda.
Roda's Dieter van Tornhout proved to be his side's match winner in a 2-1 home success over Sparta Rotterdam.
Marcel Meeuwis grabbed Roda's first from the penalty spot in the 58th minute, with Sparta grabbing an ultimately meaningless consolation thanks to Dominique van Dijk's strike.
