Guus Hiddink expects a tough game in Enschede on Saturday night. "FC Twente are well-organized and concede few goals", the PSV head coach announced one day ahead of the domestic league tie. Feelings of sovereign authority "After a hectic week and a few days of relative peace and quiet, it’s all hands on deck once again", announced Guus Hiddink during the weekly press briefing at De Herdgang training base. "I expect a tough game in Twente. Last season we would have feelings of sovereign authority and invincibility, but now I feel we are in for a tough game." The squad will make the trip to Enschede on Saturday. Hiddink was not yet in the mood to preview the AC Milan game on Tuesday night. "Of course it’s in the back of our minds, but the game we play on Saturday night is important as well, as we will then know where we stand. If we can a good result, we will be on the tight track. FC Twente play very well-organized football and concede only few goals. They will consider a defensive set-up and like to play counter attacking football."Theo LuciusHiddink gave a brief injury update and informed reporters that Michael Ball, who is fighting a knee problem, and Mika Väyrynen, who is suffering from foot injury because of which he has been sidelined for a long time, do reasonably well in their rehabilitation process. Hiddink does not want to take any risks with Theo Lucius. "We take things easy. He has resumed training and is doing some running, but he is not likely to be considered for the Sparta game next Saturday night. We don’t want to take any unnecessary risks with him. An international 'break' is coming up, so that he will have a great opportunity to return to full training during that period. I am afraid that John de Jong has made little progress so far. "It's a really sad story." The squad for the league game against FC Twente:Goalkeepers: Gomes, ZoetebierDefenders: Addo, Alex, Lamey, Ooijer, ReizigerMidfielders: Afellay, Aissati, Cocu, Culina, Ferreyra, SimonsForwards: Beasley, Farfán, Koné, Robert, Vennegoor of Hesselink.
