Emanuelson admits the 3-1 reverse was a major setback.
"We are in a difficult situation at the moment," he told fcupdate.nl. "It seemed that we were getting better after a really poor start, but now we're back to square one.
"The team feels the pressure, as does the Coach. And that aggravates what is already a heavy atmosphere around the club.
"Our biggest problem is we don't have a solid base of players. Three or four always play, and the rest just rotate around them."
