Rutten rues missed opportunities

Top two FC Twente and Ajax both also won their games on Sunday and,

with the pair meeting in the final round of matches on May 15, top

spot is now beyond PSV. It could all have been so different had

Rutten’s side not lost 3-1 at Feyenoord eight days ago – victory in

Rotterdam would have seen PSV head into the final round of fixtures

top of the pile. Rutten said: “We could have won by a larger

margin, but we hit the post twice. “We met expectations, did what

we had to do, but elsewhere our nearest competitors unfortunately

also recorded wins. “We still feel the disappointment of last

week’s 3-1 defeat at Feyenoord.” Midfielder Stijn Wuytens will be

monitored on Monday after limping off midway through the second

half with a knee injury. “We will make an assessment on his injury

[on Monday],” Rutten added. “I think Wuytens and Abel Tamata put in

a fine display at left- and right-back respectively.”
