Tomorrow KVO heads for KV Mechelen with brand new coach Yves Vanderhaeghe. The Maneblussers have suspended star player Storm after his red card against Beerschot. A game that the Maneblussers won 3-2. Malinwa quickly led 3-0 through Storm (2x) and Cuypers but after the red card for Storm, the Rats scored two more times and it was still hot for the home team. In October, KV Mechelen made it 2-4 at the Diaz Arena. For KVO Gueye and Jäkel scored, for Malinwa Cuypers, Mrabti (2) and Hairemans scored.
Wouter Vrancken's team is in a fierce battle for a Playoff ticket and absolutely wants to keep the three points at home. However, KVO can also use the points well in the battle for retention.
