Cocu targets cup boost
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
PSV Eindhoven coach Phillip Cocu is calling on his players to give the fans a boost by defeating Roda JC in their KNVB Beker tie.
PSV go into the game on the back of Sunday's disappointing 1-0 home Eredivisie defeat against leaders Feyenoord, which was also the third home game in succession that they have failed to score at the Philips Stadion.
Therefore, Cocu feels it is important to secure a confidence-boosting win, give the fans a lift and also progress in the competition.
"We must win the game to book a place in the next round but also to entertain the fans," said Cocu.
"There is no reason to criticise our style of play or doubt our abilities. We dominate our games, put pressure on the opponents' defence and work our socks off. We lack clinical finishing, though, when we play at home.
"But don't worry. I'm sure the goals will come and after breaking our duck, we will comfortably find the back of the net more often. We are eager to end our goal drought."
