Despite going into the game as Eredivisie leaders Feyenoord will do well to give RKC the respect they deserve Wednesday night when the two sides meet in Waalwijk. The Rotterdammers have won only one of their last five visits to the Mandemakers stadium and know they will have to work hard against an RKC team that has lost only once on home turf this campaign, a 0-2 reverse against Ajax in November.

Trainer Martin Jol's outfit have earned a reputation as a tough opponent and Bert van Marwijk will be looking for a good performance from his injury plagued team if Feyenoord are to return home with anything. They will have to do so without Kees van Wonderen, who continues to be unavailable. The central defender is still troubled by his hamstring and won't be risked. The same goes for Ramon van Haaren, Patrick Paauwe and Ulrich van Gobbel, who are all unfit. PROBABLE TEAMS: RKC: Van Dijk; Van Diemen, Nascimento, Van den Berg, De Graef; Cornelisse, Petrovic, Fuchs, Van Wanrooij; Hoogendorp, Janssen Feyenoord: Zoetebier; Gyan, De Haan, Sprockel, De Visser (Rzasa); Elmander, Bosvelt, Ono, Smolarek; Van Hooijdonk, Tomasson LAST TEN ENCOUNTERS AWAY: 01/04/2001 RKC Waalwijk Feyenoord 2 - 0 02/04/2000 RKC Waalwijk Feyenoord 2 - 2 10/12/1998 RKC Waalwijk Feyenoord 0 - 5 12/04/1998 RKC Waalwijk Feyenoord 3 - 2 12/10/1996 RKC Waalwijk Feyenoord 1 - 1 AT HOME: 09/09/2000 Feyenoord RKC Waalwijk 3 - 1 26/09/1999 Feyenoord RKC Waalwijk 1 - 2 24/02/1999 Feyenoord RKC Waalwijk 1 - 0 02/11/1997 Feyenoord RKC Waalwijk 2 - 1
