"PSV are looking to build on the 1-0 win over Sparta ahead of … another Sparta test", said PSV head Phillip Cocu, when he faced the media on Monday afternoon, ahead of Tuesday’s KNVB Beker second round tie.
Phillip Cocu got a good feeling from PSV’s win. “We felt the pressure on Saturday, but fortunately we recorded a win, which has provided an important confidence boost for the players.”
No fresh injury worries
Cocu says his squad are ready to face Sparta again, at The Kasteel. “We know what to expect.” There are no fresh injury worries. “The players who started on Saturday are match-fit. But four players are ruled out of Tuesday’s game with injury. Jeroen Zoet has picked up a minor injury and will miss tomorrow night’s clash with Sparta, but will be available for the trip to Arnhem on Saturday to face Vitesse. Siem de Jong suffers a calf injury and will have an MRI scan to assess the damage while Jürgen Locadia and Jorrit Hendrix are on the sidelines for a long spell."
