Team news: Nieuwkoop and St. Juste remain doubtful for cup tie

It is still up in the air whether Bart Nieuwkoop and Jeremiah St. Juste will be available for Wednesday’s TOTO KNVB Cup quarterfinal against PSV. Coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst wants to see how the two players react to the physical stresses and strains of the final training session on Tuesday afternoon before taking a decision on whether to include them in the squad.

Nieuwkoop was taken off at half time against ADO Den Haag (3-1) after he took a bang to the head. St. Juste was forced to miss that match due to injury.

Nicolai Jørgensen is one player who certainly is available for the winner-takes-all quarterfinal against league leaders PSV. There was foreign interest in the Dane, but it has not led to a transfer. ‘I’m not expecting Jørgensen to leave,’ said Van Bronckhorst during the Tuesday press conference. ‘The deadline the club set has passed. But never say never in football. In any case, Nicolai himself is dealing with this situation well.’

Feyenoord vs PSV at De Kuip kicks off at 20:45 CET on Wednesday. The match is a sell-out.
