“We have worked so hard on these defensive automatisms”


Like Club Brugge, La Gantoise fell this weekend. The Buffalos fell in Sint-Truiden, and Jess Thorup was not happy.

Sint-Truiden opened the scoring quickly after just two minutes of play via a Suzuki goal. “A huge disappointment to take a goal so quickly. Yet I really felt we were on the right track during the summer preparation,” said Thorup.

The Ghent had equalized just before the break via Plastun (43rd) and seemed in better shape in the second half, but Yaremchuk hit the post twice. “I found our second half acceptable. We created some good opportunities, but it wasn’t easy.”

Finally, the Ghent residents return home with zero points. Colidio took advantage of a bad understanding and a collision between Kaminski and Plastun on the hour mark to shake the nets and allow the Canaries to win. “This goal is totally unacceptable. I don’t know what went wrong, but it is clear that the communication was not there in this phase. It is a pity, we have worked so hard in recent months on these defensive automatisms “.

In Ghent, there was no trace of Nurio and De Bruyn in the selection. “In Friday’s session, they both suffered knee injuries. I cannot comment on the severity of their injury yet. We will know more in the coming days,” concludes Jess Thorup.
