Twente record tenth straight success

ROTTERDAM - Twente Enschede triumphed 3-1 at Willem II Tilburg for their 10th straight win this season to regain top spot in the Dutch league on Saturday.

Wout Brama opened the scoring after eight minutes with a deflected shot from 17 metres but seven minutes later Belgian Christophe Gregoire converted a penalty for the equaliser.

Miroslav Stoch restored Twente's lead before the interval and Bryan Ruiz extended his scoring streak to eight matches with his 11th of the season after 68 minutes to round off the win.
