PSV survived some scary moments in the Philips Stadium, but earned all three points from a 2-1 win over rivals Feyenoord. Ajax lost their unbeaten record after they slipped to a 2-0 defeat against Roda JC in Kerkrade, so PSV had a most agreeable Sunday afternoon.Referee VinkReferee Vink played a major part in Eindhoven by taking some controversial decisions. Much to the displeasure of the home crowd, he waved play-on after some fouls had been committed and he became the butt of criticism. Feyenoord battled hard and hoped De Guzman or van Hooijdonk would get an impulse and make the difference. Van Hooijdonk had taken over from new signing Angelos Charisteas, who was forced off with a groin strain after 21 minutes. Patrick Kluivert was brought on as a substitute twenty minutes from time. Diego Tardelli also made his PSV debut; PSV head coach Ronald Koeman handed the Brazilian a place in the starting line-up. Farfán opening goalRonald Koeman made two changes to the team that drew 0-0 with Liverpool last Tuesday night. Michael Reiziger replaced Michael Lamey as full left back. Jason Culina is ruled out for the next few weeks, after he picked up a calf injury, so latest signing Tardelli started on the right wing. PSV fielded six Latin American players, Gomes, Alex, Farfán, Salcido, Tardelli and Mendez. One of them, Farfán, has regained self-confidence: the Peruvian curled a free kick past Feyenoord goalkeeper Timmer, who seemed rooted to the ground. It was the second time Farfán found the net this season. Alex doubled advantagePSV continued to attack and Koné seemed to have doubled the advantage soon afterwards, but referee Vink ruled out his goal for off-side. Feyenoord did not threaten, but Ibrahim Afellay was knocked out after substitute Pierre van Hooijdonk had fired a free kick into his face. And the young PSV midfielder was stretchered off the pitch. Aissati came on to replace him. Feyenoord did not create any more danger, but PSV did: Kromkamp delivered a perfect cross from the right flank and found Alex, who had joined the attack. The Brazilian defender blasted home the ball from close range; 2-0. However, on the stroke of half-time the ball fell to De Guzman, who, out of the blue, drove a low shot past Gomez. So when the half time whistle went, the game was suddenly far from over yet.The second period was a thrilling affair. Feyenoord refused to throw in the towel and passionately searched for the equaliser. PSV controlled the game, but never dominated. Koné and Aissati earned opportunities, but lacked cutting edge up front. So Patrick Kluivert was brought on and the home fans warmly welcomed him. Jefferson Farfán was stretchered off soon afterwards, after he was too dizzy to play on and Eric Addo left the bench to take over. Feyenoord scored a goal from a corner two minutes from time, but the goal did not stand as Vink adjudged Gomes to have been fouled. PSV survived some scary moments in a nail-biting finale, but they eventually earned a deserved win. PSV will be next in action on Wednesday night when they travel to Werkendam to face amateur side Kozakken Boys in a cup tie.
