PSV defender Alex is ruled out of tomorrow night’s domestic league game against Heracles Almelo. The Brazilian is fighting a groin problem and will be rested. Theo Lucius returns from suspension and Lee Nguyen is also included in the squad.Jefferson FarfánClub top scorer Jefferson Farfán has been called up for the squad, but PSV head coach Guus Hiddink dropped the hint at the weekly media briefing at De Herdgang training base that the Peruvian is a doubt. "He has picked up quite a few knocks in the past two games." Jason Culina is not available, just like for the FC Utrecht game, as the Australian is troubled by an ankle problem. "He has sustained a nasty injury", said Hiddink, who added that he expects the midfielder to stage a comeback for next week Friday’s tie against Vitesse. The young American Lee Nguyen, who was an unused substitute at the FC Utrecht encounter, will again deputize for Culina. The good news is that Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, who has recovered from his hamstring problems, is set to start tomorrow night. Heracles AlmeloHiddink was brief in his analysis of tomorrow night’s opponent Heracles. "They are having a fine run in the league and they have proved they can give any side a hard time." PSV had to settle for a draw against Heracles Almelo in this season’s reverse encounter. On the very first match day of the new season the Heracles-PSV game ended in 1-1. Heracles also drew 1-1 with sc Heerenveen last Wednesday night.Saturday night’s game will be kicked off at 19:30.PSV suqad:Goalkeepers: Gomes, ZoetebierDefenders: Addo, Ball, Lamey, Ooijer, ReizigerMidfielders: Afellay, Aissati, Cocu, Nguyen, Lucius, Simons, VäyrynenForwards: Beasley, Farfán, Thompson, Vennegoor of Hesselink
