After a number of weeks without a league game, PSV coach Huub Stevens hopes his players will get a positive result at Roda JC this afternoon. He has made one change to the starting eleven that faced FC Twente three weeks ago. Edison Méndez returns to the starting line-up, at the expense of Nordin Amrabat. The Ecuadorian international will join a midfield that also includes Timmy Simons, Otman Bakkal and Ibrahim Afellay. Danko Lazovic leads PSV's attack. Kick off at the Parkstad Limburg Stadium is at 12:30.
Toivonen called up to the squad
Méndez, who did not join his team mates at the training camp in La Manga, is included in this afternoon's starting line-up. Danko Lazovic will lead the attack, with Balázs Dzsudzsák and Otman Bakkal providing support on the wings. Carlos Salcido, Maza and Nordin Amrabat start on the bench. Dirk Marcellis and Jérémie Bréchet form a central defensive partnership. Kromkamp and Zonneveld have not been called up to the squad, while new signing Ola Toivonen will watch the game from the stand.
PSV line-up:
Cássio Ramos, Simons, Méndez, Lazovic, Bréchet, Pieters, Culina, Afellay, Dzsudzsák, Marcellis and Bakkal.
Substitutions: Roorda, Salcido, Maza, Koevermans, Amrabat, Nijland and Wuytens
