PSV slipped to a 3-2 defeat against Dender in a friendly at De Herdgang training centre on Thursday afternoon. PSV gave the first team regulars that have not gone away on international duty and many youth players some match practise. Bakkal and Zonneveld put PSV twice on top, but the Belgian First Division side showed resilience and had the final say.

PSV were to meet KV Mechelen, but when the local authorities called off the friendly because of security reasons, PSV invited FCV Dender EH, who currently lie sixteenth in the Belgian First Division, to come and play a friendly in Eindhoven. PSV handed a start to youth player Olivier ter Horst, while Tommie van der Leegte was wearing the captain's armband. PSV took a bright start and after only a few minutes Bakkal rounded goalkeeper Lemmens, when in a one-to-one situation, before tucking the ball into the empty net. Dender produced little goal threat, but leveled the score a few minutes later. The visitors won a free kick and when the ball fell to Henri Munyaneza, he blasted home the equaliser. Three minutes Mike Zonneveld gave PSV the lead again with a headed goal.

After the break Ronald Koeman brought on youngsters Heerkens (centre back), Hutten (forward) and Ojo (holding midfielder). David Destorme soon restored parity and the visitors even took the lead after 55 minutes. Junior defender Ter Horst did not clear the ball properly and Tom Peeters slotted home; 2-3. PSV could not find an opening in the visitors' compact defence in the remaining minutes of the second half.
They players that have not gone away on international duty will have a long weekend off, before they report back for training on Monday to prepare for the domestic league game against VVV-Venlo on 20 October
