Timmy Simons has been included in the squad that face RKC Waalwijk on Friday night (kick off at 20:30), but he is a doubt. The Belgian is fighting a muscle problem. Edwin ZoetebierDeputy goalkeeper Edwin Zoetebier is ruled out of tomorrow night’s game, as he is troubled by a sore back. The Australian stopper Nathan Coe will fill for in for him. Latest signing Archie Thompson has not been named for the squad; he is feeling the effects of an abdominal wall inflammation. The Australian forward contracted this problem on arrival in Holland and has meanwhile undergone surgery in hospital. "We took instant action. He will be able to train next week and his work permit and other official documents are being taken care of", explained Guus Hiddink at the weekly media briefing at De Herdgang.Michael BallTimmy Simons will face a fitness test on match day to find out how serious his problems are. "He is the versatile kind of player that you really notice once he does not make an appearance. He invariably does well for the team." Michael Ball will replace Michael Lamey, who serves a suspension, following two bookable offences during the game against Sparta Rotterdam last Sunday. Hiddink also referred to this season’s reverse encounter, away against RKC Waalwijk. PSV took a 1-3 lead, but had to come from 4-3 down to salvage a point in added time. (4-4) “I don’t think there are many sides that can turn a game upside down in the way they did. It proves how dangerous they can be. And we had such a bright start in the initial phases." The squad for the RKC Waalwijk clash:Goalkeepers: Coe, GomesDefenders: Addo, Alex, Ball, Ooijer, ReizigerMidfielders: Afellay, Aissati, Cocu, Culina, Lucius, Simons, VäyrynenForwards: Beasley, Farfán, Sibon, Vennegoor of Hesselink.
