KAA Gent are back in business after first win in PO1

In football, KAA Gent took it 2-3 at Standard de liège after a last-gasp effort by Canadian striker Jonathan David, to post their first victory in this Play-off 1 finale. It means Gent are back in contention for fifth place and (possibly) a place in the Europa League qualifiers. 

The win allows KAA Gent to join the battle for fifth place, which may be good enough for a European ticket. AA Gent are now just one point behind fith-placed Anderlecht, who are playing Royal Antwerp FC tomorrow. 

KAA Gent climbed ahead twice, but Standard equalised on both occasions. On 94 minutes of play, well into extra time, substitute Giorgi Kvilitaia found young Canadian striker Jonathan David who headed home the 2-3, his second goal of the evening.  

Tomorrow will see the big clach between title contenders Club Brugge and KRC Genk, who are six points in front of Bruges three games from the end. If Genk win, they will be crowned champions. Brugge need to win to keep their title dreams alive, but they will play at home.
