Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink is ruled out for tonight's Amstel Cup semi final tie against Feyenoord . The tall striker has strained a muscle. Moroever Phillip Cocu and André Ooijer are doubtful. André Ooijer has picked up a knock on his calf and had to withdraw from Tuesday's training session. Phillip Cocu is still troubled by the effects of the foul committed by Martijn Reuser during the league clash away against Willem II last Sunday afternoon. That foul would eventually result into a red card shown to the experienced midfielder. Cocu's left leg is still bruised because of the kick delivered by Reuser. Both Ooijer and Cocu will face a late fitness test on Wednesday to find out if they are available. Ji-Sung Park, who was on the sidelines last Sunday, returns to the squad. Guus Hiddink intimated during the press briefing on Tuesday afternoon that he attaches great value to winning the Dutch Cup. "Winning the Dutch title is on top of our priority list, and winning the Dutch Cup comes second. And we have come a long way in the UEFA Champions League. We will not give away any presents and we have shown lately that we take every game seriously. But obviously we hope to come through this cup tie unscathed, as we will meet AC Milan soon", explained Hiddink. Guus Hididink did not announce yet which player would deputize for Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink Gerald Sibon and Robert are the most likely candidates, but Jefferson Farfán can also be played as striker up front now that Park is available again. Provisional squad for the cup tie against Feyenoord:Goalkeepers: Gomes, Zoetebier.Defenders: Ooijer, Lee, Alex, Bouma, Addo, Bøgelund.Midfielders: Van Bommel, Van der Schaaf, Vogel, Lucius, Afellay.Forwards: Park, Beasley, Farfán, Robert and Sibon.
