The result lifts Roda above NAC Breda, RKC Waalwijk and Utrecht, and gives them a real chance of securing a Uefa Cup place when the season resumes in the New Year.
Edrissa Sonko was the hero for the home side, with his goal five minutes before the interval proving to be the winner.
Twente heaped more misery on RBC Roosendaal and did their own survival hopes no harm with a comprehensive 3-0 win.
Jurgen Cavens opened the scoring on 25 minutes, but the game was still in the balance until Twente took control with 20 minutes remaining.
Thijs Houwing netted the second from close in and Collins John completed the scoring with a fine drive before RBC had time to fashion a response.
There is now daylight between Twente and the relegation places, but RBC are now casting anxious glances over their shoulder at the teams below them.
