VIDEO: Ghaly assists Celtic loanee on debut in deserved Lierse win

Lierse secured a deserved three points in the Juplier Pro League with a 2-0 win against Kotrijk to move up to tenth place – level on points with Charleroi.

Egyptian-owned Lierse bounced back from the thrashing they received at Club Brugge last weekend to seal a 2-0 victory against mid-table KV Kortrijk.

The in-form Franco-Moroccan central midfielder Rachid Bourabia put Lierse ahead after only four minutes before striker Tony Watt – who scored Celtic’s historic winner against Barcelona in the Champions League last season – doubled the score in the second half to lead the team to win their second match this season.

Regarding Lierse’s Pharaohs, Hossam Ghaly look sharped as he played the full match while left-back Ahmed Samir Farag was replaced by Wouter Corstjens after 72 minutes.

Ghaly, who scored his first goal for Egypt since 2007 in the recent 4-2 win over Guinea in World Cup qualifying, assisted Watt’s goal with a clinical through pass but also picked up a yellow card for the second consecutive match.

Kotrijk, who were heading towards a place in the top six, slipped down the table to eight place while the three points increases Lierse’s tally to eight in as many matches.
