Storm and a disallowed goal ensure KV Mechelen of victory against KV Oostende

After a run of poor form in recent weeks KV Mechelen have won their first game in a month and a half with a 1-0 home win against KV Oostende. After more than an hour of lacklustre football fans in the stadium and those watching the game at home on TV were treated to an exciting climax to what was the first of this weekend’s Belgian First Division games. After a run of poor form in recent weeks KV Mechelen have won their first game in a month and a half with a 1-0 home win against KV Oostende. After more than an hour of lacklustre football fans in the stadium and those watching the game at home on TV were treated to an exciting climax to what was the first of this weekend’s Belgian First Division games. 

Storm scored the only goal of the game on 70 minutes. There was no lack of controversy as KV Oostende appeared to have scored an equaliser, but it was disallowed as the Video Ref said that it hadn’t fully crossed the line.

KV Michelin too felt aggrieved that they weren’t awarded a penalty. However, it was not to be and the game ended 1-0 in KV Mechelen’s favour. After 20 games KV Mechelen are 7th with 31 points. KV Oostende are 13 with 18 points. However, they could slip back a place if KV Kortrijk beat KAS Eupen in Eupen on Saturday evening.
