It is still uncertain whether Karim El Ahmadi (knee) or Jeremiah St. Juste (groin) will be available against Roda JC Kerkrade on Sunday. Both were forced off with injuries in Thursday evening’s cup tie against Heracles Almelo. ‘We have to wait and see how they are going into Sunday, but it’s not excluded that they could play,’ said head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst at the Friday afternoon press conference.
Steven Berghuis got a poke in the eye against Heracles, but Van Bronckhorst expects the club’s top scorer to available on Sunday. Four players with long-term injury troubles, Eric Botteghin, Jan-Arie van der Heijden, Ridgeciano Haps and Miquel Nelom, remain on the sidelines. Michiel Kramer is out of the match-day squad after being disciplined by the club for unprofessional conduct at half time during Thursday’s match, in which he was an unused substitute.
Feyenoord v Roda JC kicks off at 16:45 on Sunday.
