Two players of the PSV squad for Wednesday night’s Gatorade Cup semi final tie against AZ (kick off at 19.00 pm) are doubtful: Michael Lamey (calf) and DaMarcus Beasley (Achilles tendon injury). Ibrahim Afellay is ill and is consequently ruled out. Roy Beerens has been included in the provisional nineteen-man squad. Lamey and Beasley will face a test on match day to see whether they are available. One player of the squad will be dropped and see the game from the stand. PSV are looking forward to a fine cup tie against AZ. "We want to win the Dutch Cup”, announced Guus Hiddink during the pre-match media briefing. “Clinching the Dutch title is obviously our primary target as it is a great achievement football wise. And of course qualifying for the Champions League has its financial advantages for the club. So we focus on becoming champions. But it is also great to win the Cup, like we did last season. We are anxious to win. Actually we are greedy”, said Hiddink, who emphasized that he takes AZ “very seriously indeed”.The Tuesday morning training session was interrupted for a while, as a great many avid fans wanted to make it clear to Hiddink how much they would love him to stay with PSV. "I appreciate the way they expressed their support. It was very dignified’, felt Hiddink. He briefly talked to the fans, after which they unfolded a banner with the message he should not leave.
