Did you know that? Lierse Kempenzonen

Did you know that?

It has been 17 years since Westerlo was able to win at the Lisp in competition? On 6 December 2003 our kemphanen won the Lier pallieters with an economical 0-1 victory. The only goal of the competition came in the name of Tosin Dosunmu. The Nigerian striker will hit Westel no less than 16 times that season. Meanwhile, we are talking about Lierse Kempenzonen and the club has been playing professional football again since this season because a few 1B teams from last season did not get a licence or had to file for bankruptcy. Lierse Kempenzonen could not win the last 3 home games. Seraing, Union and Lommel took the full loot from the Herman Vanderpoorten stadium.

Scott Bitsindou is the first player to be suspended this season after a series of 5 yellow cards? Also midfielder Ayyoub Allach is out until New Year with an ankle injury. Allach suffered that injury in the game against RWDM after a wild tackle by Nicolas Rommens, ex-Kemphaan. Jellert van Landschoot also missed the game because of torn ankle ligaments.

Sava Petrov still wore the shirt of our kemphanen in the first match? The Serbian striker then exchanged ’t Kuipje for an adventure with the neighbours from Lier. At Lierse he found Bob Straetman, Emile Samyn and Yentl Van Genechten. Straetman and Samyn already have experience at the highest level. Yentl Van Genechten is also a former kemphaan but could not break through at Westel.

Coaches Bob Peeters and Tom Van Imschoot have faced each other 5 times already? Our coach Bob Peeters has the advantage in this battle. Peeters could win 2 times and played 2 times equal. If our coach and Westel want to win again in Lier after 17 years, the Westel troops will certainly have to be awake between minutes 15 and 30 because Lierse scores most of their goals during this period.
