Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored the only goal of the game midway through the second period to move the Amsterdammers onto 21 points, the same as Feyenoord who lost at FC Twente.
The defeat for Utrecht was their third of an inconsistent campaign that leaves them 11th in the standings - and without a win at the Stadion Galgenwaard this season.
