Result: Hakim Ziyech strike steals win for 10-man FC Twente against De Graafschap

FC Twente come from behind to defeat De Graafschap 2-1 in their Eredivisie clash, despite playing the majority of the match with 10 men.

Hakim Ziyech struck in stoppage time to guide 10-man FC Twente to a comeback win over De Graafschap in their Eredivisie clash this evening.

The home side were reduced to 10 men when keeper Nick Marsman was sent off for bringing down Cas Peters in the box, and the referee had no hesitation to award the penalty.

Peters took the spot kick, but he saw his effort saved by substitute keeper Joel Drommel, but Andrew Driver was on hand to smash home the rebound to hand De Graafschap the lead.

However, Twente levelled the scores almost immediately when Joachim Andersen bundled the ball past Hidde Jurjus from a corner.

The home side came within inches of the lead in the early stages of the second half when Jerson Cabral launched an effort at goal from outside the box, but his strike hit the post.

Jari Oosterwijk should have fired Twente ahead when he was played through on goal, but Jurjus made a vital save for the visitors to deny the forward's strike with his body.

The hosts continued to press for a winner despite their numerical disadvantage and were rewarded in the 92nd minute as Ziyech found the net with a shot from close range to secure the three points.

Twente's win leaves them in 16th place, while De Graafschap are rooted to the foot of the table.
