Adam Sarota made his first league start since late January for FC Utrecht on the weekend.

The Australian midfielder was in Jan Wouters' line-up for the home meeting with PSV Eindhoven after returning from a knee injury but the day ended in misery for the club.

PSV, who had lost four in a row and had not won in six prior, hammered Utrecht 5-1 at the Stadion Galgenwaard.

Sarota got through 65 minutes of his return before being replaced by Mark Diemers while his Socceroos teammate Tommy Oar came on for Elroy Pappot at half-time.
