Australian goalkeeper Brad Jones has kept his second-consecutive clean sheet against a European giant for Feyenoord, with a man-of-the-match performance against Eredivisie rivals PSV Eindhoven.

Jones made seven saves in the 1-0 victory as league-leading Feyenoord extended their lead atop the standings and maintained their unbeaten run, six games into the season.

His output included an incredible close-range reflex stop from a header in the final seconds of injury time as PSV pushed for an equaliser.

"In a game like this, two big teams playing it out, there's going to be opportunities for both," the Australian 34-year-old told Dutch TV station RTV Rijnmond.

"Fortunately, I was able to make the saves when the chances came."

The former Liverpool and Middlesbrough stopper also kept Manchester United goalless in the Rotterdam-based side's 1-0 win in their opening Europa League group stage clash last week.

Jones, whose resume includes a five-year stint at Liverpool for 11 matches, was brought to the Dutch club following a long-term injury to No.1 choice and Netherlands international Kenneth Vermeer.

But according to Jones, suggestions he'll soon be the first-choice keeper at Feyenoord are premature.

"That's not even something to talk about at the moment," Jones said.

He may add to his four appearances in goal for the Socceroos though, due to an injury to fellow goalkeeper Mat Ryan, ahead of Australia's World Cup qualifiers against Saudi Arabia and Japan in October.
