Cooseman’s bogeyman for Lommel
Through Sales and Vancsa, Lommel had by far the best start, both players collided with a strong Coosemans. The visitors forgot to reward themselves and were put behind halfway through the first half when Ure took advantage of one of the first chances for the home team: 1-0. Afterwards, the visitors continued to push on the door but could not open it. Fortunately, Anderlecht had the lead halfway through.
Lommel only fights alongside very late
Even after the break, it was the Limburgers who had the most ball possession and created a number of opportunities. Coosemans was the hero for a long time, until ten minutes from the end he was beaten on a corner kick: Wouters aimed the 1-1 past the home goalkeeper. In the end the match could have gone either way, with De Busser making a beautiful save five minutes from the end to ensure that Lommel went to Limburg with a point.
