Bottom club FC Twente boosted their Eredivisie survival hopes with a 2-0 home win over PEC Zwolle.

Jeroen van der Lely and Michael Maria both scored in the first half to push FC Twente within a point of Sparta Rotterdam and three of Roda, who both have played a match more and occupy the relegation play-off spots.

Defender Van der Lely fired Twente in front in the 21st minutes with an angled drive and Maria stabbed in a second before half-time when cutting into the left-side of the penalty area.

Zwolle, meanwhile, saw their hopes of securing a place in the Europa League qualifier play-offs dented further on Tuesday evening after Heerenveen later moved up above them into the top seven with a 2-0 win over Den Haag.

New Zealand forward Marco Rojas struck twice in the second half to leave the hosts in sixth place.
