The defeat left them level on 19 points with champions Ajax Amsterdam who missed the chance to go clear at the top when they were held to a 0-0 draw at home to bottom side RKC Waalwijk.
Rydell Poepon scored twice as NAC Breda beat Go Ahead Eagles 5-0 while SC Cambuur recovered from conceding an early goal to score three times in the last half-hour and beat Utrecht 3-1.
Any one of the chasing pack could take top spot on Sunday when third-placed PSV Eindhoven visit Roda JC Kerkrade and PEC Zwolle, who are fourth also on 18 points, host AZ Almaar.
Feyenoord are a point further back in fifth before they host Heracles Almelo while Vitesse and Groningen, who also have 17 points, will be eyeing the summit when they meet in Arnhem.
