Koen Van Langendonck: We can be happy to still get this point

Koen, can you be satisfied with this draw?

I think if we look at the whole match we can be happy that we got this point. Seven minutes before the end we were 2-1 down, so we’re lucky to have scored the equaliser. But on the other hand, we were leading and we knew there is still a small chance for promotion. Maybe we should have been smarter in trying to hold on to that lead.

We can indeed use the points, 3 out of 12 is not good enough for Westerlo, right?

Sure, but I think we have to remain realistic. If we look at the gap with Union over the whole season, I think that gap is far too big.

Last year we had a very good season and we wanted to build on that. It turned out to be a very strange year thanks to the corona virus, which also affected us. But I don’t think we can blame it on missing out on promotion. I do maintain that there are still 12 points to be gained and we are not 12 behind so there is still a water chance.

The coach also changed the line-up, when did you know you would be playing today?
Two days before the match they let me know that I would play.
