PSV head coach Guus Hiddink announced at the post-match press conference that he was content with the was his side had performed against RBC, but he hastened to add that the injury that Ibrahim Afellay had picked up might mean another injury blow. Final blow"I think the team that started did very well for long spells in the first period. Unfortunately we have not been rewarded by, say, two early goals. We just went on after the break with what we had started. When we scored the second goal, it gave them the final blow. We wanted to add a few more goals, but we didn't and that's a shame. But we are content with tonight’s display." Hiddink could not announce any news on Afellay. "He will have his groin examined tomorrow and then we will be able to reveal the exact nature of his injury."Ismail AissatiHiddink was delighted with youngster Ismail Aissati, who took over from Afellay, "He was involved in many moves and he was hardly dispossessed. He could have had more attacking ideas, but that’s only a matter of time. We are glad he has made so much progress. He is a clever lad and knows what is expected of him. We should not forget he is only 17!" Fully justifiedRBC coach Dolf Roks had a clear analysis. "We knew that PSV were facing many injury problems and that they will play a crucial European game soon. But they scored early goals on either side of the break and we could not turn the game around. I suppose 2-0 is a fair result and I can live with it, but actually we have been left empty-handed once again. But the result is obviously fully justified. It is now our challenge not to be down-hearted, but restore self confidence for next week's fixture", said Roks.
