Utrecht made it three wins out of four with a simple 2-0 victory over Roda JC.
Utrecht remained in control and should have added further goals before the break but Cyriel Dessers and Zakaria Labyad missed great chances. Eventually, on the hour mark, Utrecht found a second through Labyad, who finished calmly after being set up by Dessers.
Roda JC were powerless as they looked for a way back into the game and Utrecht easily held on to move fourth. Roda JC are second bottom and without a single point.
