ENSCHEDE, Netherlands, Oct 27 (Reuters) Leaders Feyenoord suffered their second Dutch league defeat of the season, losing 2-0 at Twente Enschede today.

Twente took an early lead when Blaise Nkufo headed home a cross from Luke Wilkshire after 11 minutes. Stein Huysegems then secured victory with another header early in the second half.

Twente climbed to fifth with 15 points, the same tally as Roda JC Kerkrade who beat Graafschap Doetinchem 1-0 with Marcel Meeuwis scoring from the penalty spot after 61 minutes.

Afonso Alves grabbed his ninth and 10th goals of the season as Heerenveen cruised to a 4-0 victory at bottom side VVV Venlo.

Kristian Bak Nielsen and Radoslaw Matusiak also struck.

Excelsior Rotterdam and Heracles Almelo shared a 1-1 draw. Igor Gluscevic opened the scoring for Heracles before Tjeerd Korf equalised in the 13th minute.
