After ten matches without victory, could Sint-Truiden finally win. Child of the bill was KV Mechelen tomorrow with a win of Eupen against Charleroi the red lantern in the hands it can get. Sint-Truiden, thanks to the victory and the defeat of the Standard at Zulte-Waregem, again the top six crept into. For the Truienaren was of 26 October ago that they last a contest could win in the Jupiler Pro League.
STVV-trainer Jonas De Roeck had his team – with six changes compared to the team that in Beveren hopeless was way played – with clear guidelines, the field sent: Malinwa directly for the throat grab. And the Townspeople were also willing for the throat grab. Dramatically defending ensured that Vetokele in the second minute on a goal if steps. His attempt went over. Who thought that this is the the visitors woke up, had shaken, had made a mistake. Malinwa remained weak defend, STVV kept coming. Bezus kicked initially even incomprehensible to the next, but saw a moment later his free kick by Teixeira, edge, offside, within gekopt. Deserved lead for the People.
Only a single threat action, the visitors could be there in the first half compared to set when Bandé for goalkeeper Steppe was piloted. The stiftertje of Bandé was insufficient. For the other remained STVV dominate. Especially Bezus showed himself very industrious, and sowed with his puntgave pedaling technique continuous panic, Dussaut always had the two-zero need to score.
Same scenario after the break, with still a flaterend Malinwa. Asamoah did not benefit, but the second hit was the result: Dussaut kicked the rebound after moderate keeperswerk of Coosemans easy against the ropes. Books closed!
The Malinwa supporters started in the meantime, trainer Janković to certify under the eye of his earlier this season fired predecessor, Yannick Fereira. On the field, tried the players still expand their horizons but all their labour silted up in good intentions. On the other side missed Botaka an excellent opportunity on three-zero. Substitute player Beciraj swallowed in the slotminuten still a red card. A lot of asset to KV Mechelen.
