The visitors' Ramon van Haaren (pictured) was given his marching orders in the 35th minute after picking up his booking, but despite constant pressure, PSV were unable to break down Roda's defence.
Van Nistelrooy made his comeback after 12 months on the sidelines and, having scored twice for the reserves on Thursday, entered the fray after van Haaren was sent-off, replacing defender Eric Addo as PSV pushed for the win.
The result extends PSV's lead over Feyenoord to five points, whilst Roda move into fifth.
Meanwhile, in Tilburg it was goals galore as Willem II smashed six past De Graafschap.
Kew Jaliens got the procession started in only the third minute with the opening goal.
After that there were strikes at regular intervals - Danny Landzaat getting his first after 21 minutes.
Mariano Bombarda also got a brace and scored his first just before the half hour mark.
The home side went into the break 3-0 up but showed they were unwilling to rest on their laurels when Youssef Mariana struck three minutes into the second period.
De Graafschap managed to hold out until the 88th minute when Bombarda got his second and Landzaat mirrored the feat in injury time.
