Roda were indebted to Brazilian midfielder Cristiano whose last-gasp gaol salvaged a point from Friday night's home clash with Utrecht.

The hosts missed the chance to close the gap on fifth-placed AZ Alkmaar, but will be thankful to have ultimately taken something from the game at the Parkstad Limburg Stadion.

Utrecht, who remain three points and two points behind their opponents following the result, hit the front on 13 minutes with a strike from Stefan Tanghe (pictured).

However, just when it seemed the midfielder's effort would be enough for maximum points, Cristiano popped up to rescue the hosts.
