Roda's bid to make ground on the top five met with a setback as they were held at home by Utrecht.
The Kerkrade outfit are striving to force their way into the European picture, but they found Utrecht stubborn opponents on Friday.
Roda had every chance to claim victory as they played for over 80 minutes with a man advantage as Ali Boussaboun was sent off after just seven minutes.
Utrecht refused to wilt, though, and they fought hard to secure a 0-0 draw.
