Schmidt: 'We should have scored five, six times'

PSV coach Roger Schmidt did not want to blame the draw on his goalkeeper.

According to the German, his team should have distanced himself from Heerenveen much earlier.

"We are very disappointed. We were clearly better and had a lot of opportunities, but you have to take them at the right time. We should have scored four, five, six times or not conceded anything," he said.

"It is important that you stay sharp until the last moment. It was a bit lacking. I don't know exactly how that is possible. We had plenty of opportunities, but should have handled them better."

Due to the loss of points, PSV concedes two points to leader Ajax, which did book an away win earlier in the day.

The people of Eindhoven will play at home against FC Utrecht in the next Eredivisie round.
