SELECTION AND PREVIEW KVO - OHL
Selection (25): Hubert, Scherpen, Ndicka, D'Haese, Medley, Jakel, Tanghe, Capon, Fortes, Wylin, Urhoghide, Duncan, Patoulidis, Koziello, D'Arpino, Amade, Rocha, Bätzner, McGeehan, Albanese, Sakamoto, Kvasina, Ambrose, Atanga, Gueye.
Absent: Boonen, Osifo, Schelfhout.
RemarksExcept for Boonen (who is training again) and Osifo, all players are ready to play. That means that no less than seven players will be left out of the selection tomorrow. Markus Pflanz has some serious decisions to make.
Matchday 26 features a home game against OH Leuven for KV Oostende. After the satisfying and very important victory of the Coastboys at Cercle Brugge, the troops of Markus Pflanz will be looking for their first three points at home since the turn of the year. Both Ostend and Leuven are on a shared 13 points with 27.the place in the standings. So both teams can use the points well.
The team from Leuven has one more match to catch up on against Racing Genk. The Limburgers had that match postponed last weekend because they were struggling with too many absences. Leuven's last match was the midweek trip to Zulte Waregem last week. There, Sory Kaba scored the 0-1 on the half hour, but Jelle Vossen scored the counter-goal just before halftime. That made 1-1 the final score on the scoreboard as well.
In the first match OH Leuven won from the coastal team after a goal from a free kick. It was then Xavier Mercier who shot the ball around the wall into the shortest corner.
Last team OH Leuven: Runarsson, Ouedraogo, Dewaest, Özkacar, De Norre, De Sart, Ngawa, Shengelia, Mercier, Aguemon, Kaba
