Narsingh relieved with PSV victory

By Football News



PSV attacker Luciano Narsingh was a happy man after two late goals allowed them to ease to past Twente 3-0 on Sunday.

Steve McClaren's Twente were 1-0 down with 10 minutes left, but Tim Matavz's goal was followed by Narsingh's and propelled PSV back to the top of the Eredivisie.

"I thought (we might concede) at any given moment," Narsingh said after the match.

"Nothing was going in. But at some point we had to score a second, and I had the confidence that we would be fine, because we played good football at times."

Despite being without Mark Van Bommel and Dries Mertens, PSV were still able to dispatch one of the teams that are battling for supremacy this season in the league.

"We have coped well," Narsingh added. "We missed our leader, Dries, and his threat. But I think we have a good front man in Matavz, myself and (Jeremain) Lens.

Asked about Netherlands international Matavz, Narsingh replied: "That's a real striker.

"He was waiting for his chance and he eventually got it and scored it."

PSV sit two points ahead of Vitesse and Twente in the Eredivisie, with reigning champions Ajax one point further back on 33.
