PSV keep sights set on top three

PSV Eindhoven maintained their hopes of a top-three finish in the Eredivisie with victory at 10-man Roda JC.

Goals from Dries Mertens, Marcelo and Memphis Depay secured the points for the visitors, who also missed a penalty through Jeremain Lens in an incident which saw Roda goalkeeper Pawel Kieszek sent off.

The result enabled PSV to record their fourth successive win as they mount a late bid for an automatic European spot.

Sanharib Malki scored the only reply for Roda, whose challenge for a Europa League play-off place was ended with the defeat.

The home side had the first glimpse of goal after five minutes but Mads Junker's lob was easily dealt with by goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton.

PSV were ahead just two minutes later thanks to Mertens, who played a one-two with Lens before planting a shot into the bottom right corner.

Another goal almost followed after 14 minutes but Lens saw his close-range strike saved by a brilliant reaction save from Kieszek.

PSV eventually doubled their lead after 32 minutes though, with Marcelo heading home a corner from Mertens.

The visitors continued to dominate play and were twice denied by the woodwork before the interval with Lens and Mertens hitting the crossbar and right post respectively.

Roda showed signs of recovery with a goal of their own after 65 minutes. Junker's cross from the left landed at the feet of Malki, who slipped the ball beyond the reach of Tyton.

But their luck changed once more nine minutes from time when goalkeeper Kieszek was sent off for hauling down Jetro Williams.

Lens saw his spot-kick saved by Kieszek's replacement, Mateusz Prus, but Depay grabbed a third for PSV five minutes from time, providing the finish to another Lens cross.
