kwakman bNAC Breda started brightly looking to make amends for their 3-0 defeat to RKC last week, and put pressure on the PSV goal, with Tyton having to make a smart stop from Jeffrey Sarpong.

However PSV started to take control, and took the lead just before half time, with Jurgen Locadia’s weak shot beating Jelle ten Rouwelaar in the NAC goal.

The second half began as an end to end affair, as Memphis Depay fired inches wide for PSV, and then at the other end Rydell Poepon sent a free header over the bar.

On 62 minutes a nice flick by Depay sent Locadia through on goal, but the striker’s poor effort was easily saved by Ten Rouwelaar.

A miss that PSV would go on to regret as five minutes later it was 1-1 with Kees Kwakman given too much room to fire past Tyton from a corner, after Sarpong’s effort was deflected over by Depay.

Kwakman then added his second and what turned out to be the winner as he hooked Danny Verbeek’s free kick into the bottom corner.

The home side then defended brilliantly to see out the win, which lifts them up to 10th place in the table, and condemns PSV to 8th place.

PSV have now only won one of their last six league games, and the pressure will continue to build on coach Phillip Cocu’s young side who were title favourites before the season began.
