FC Twente moved up to third in the Eredivisie after Youssouf Hersi´s second-half strike gave them a 1-0 win over Excelsior.

Hersi scored in the 59th minute to strengthen the hosts´ grip on a Champions League play-off place.

Twente are four points clear of sixth-placed Feyenoord and two behind second-placed Ajax having played a game more than both, while Excelsior remain bottom, level on points with VVV Venlo and three adrift of guaranteed safety.
