Preview Lierse Kempenzonen

Again no confirmation. That was the idea that prevailed after the match against Seraing last Sunday. Seraing could even hurt our kemphanen at times. Only one other team managed to do that this season, leader Union SG. Saturday evening our kemphanen will travel to Lier for the Campine derby. Anyone who read the previous article attentively yesterday knows that it has been 17 years since we were able to win in competition at the Lisp. If we can quote assistant coach Eric Reenaers one more time: “statistics are there to break”. With that motivation, it is almost like having to score 3 points.

Negative spiral at Lierse K.

Lierse kempenzonen could barely present a poor 3 out of 21 in his last 7 matches. During a flare-up visit to Seraing, Lierse kempenzonen took the bus with a 1-3 victory. This weekend, even the youngsters of Club NXT managed to achieve their first 3-point of the season against the pallieters. However, Lierse Kempenzonen was not off to a bad start to the season. With 7 out of 12 and a draw in ’t Kuipje, Lierse was satisfied with his start of the season.

Last season Lierse Kempenzonen finished in thirteenth place in the rankings. Shortly after the relegation to second amateur came the surprising news that the pallieters were allowed to enter the 1B Pro League. Partly because several teams did not get their license or even did not apply for it. At the moment Lierse kempenzonen is not in good shape in the series and it is about time to grab points if it wants to avoid a possible relegation.

Varying with sometimes explanations

We often hear the weather woman Sabine Hagedoren say. It’s going to be a changeable day, sometimes with explanations when the sun comes through. Nowadays we can also find this projection in our kemphanen. A deserved 3-0 victory against RWDM, a draw at Club NXT. A fantastic match and ditto 3-0 victory against KMSK Deinze, a 1-1 draw at home against RFC Seraing. The Western troops often show that there is football in this team, but for the time being they are not able to confirm this week after week. Anyone who hears Sabine Hagedoren may immediately make the link with our greenkeeper Geert Segers (in the Kemphaan magazine the farmer’s son from Arendonk hijacked the cover story with the title “Sabine Hagedoren is the only woman in my life”). It will certainly not be the turf in ’t Kuipje, which Geert mows perfectly down to the last millimetre.

In ’t Kuipje it became 0-0 in the first match of the season. A score that did not immediately live up to the high ambitions. Westel deserved to win the match, but was unable to convert his field dominance into concrete goal danger. Opportunities for Vetokele, Van Eenoo, Brüls and Abrahams were not exploited, which made Lierse Kempenzonen in particular happy with the draw. More than 10 playing days and numerous covid-19 contaminations further, the two teams once again face each other. Westel has to win to be able to climb in the rankings. Lierse kempenzonen, on the other hand, urgently needs to collect points if it is to move a relegation. Rendezvous Saturday evening in the Herman Vanderpoorten stadium at 20h45!
