Cocu wants PSV response
[.[views].], BY TM
PSV Eindhoven boss Phillip Cocu is keen for his side to return to winning ways when they meet Excelsior in the Eredivisie on Saturday.
Rood-witten suffered their first league defeat of the campaign last weekend when they were beaten 1-0 at home by early-season pacesetters Feyenoord.
Cocu's men did bounce back from that loss by defeating Roda JC 4-0 in the KNVB Beker on Wednesday, but the former Dutch international now wants his side to return to winning ways in the league, starting with Saturday's trip to the Stadion Woudestein.
He said: "We know this is an important game, the more so as we slipped to defeat against Feyenoord last weekend. We are very keen and highly motivated to return to winning ways."
PSV will secure a club-record 13th straight away league win if they claim all three points against Excelsior, but Cocu thinks his side will be geared up for the clash.
He added: "We do not need extra motivation."
