Lommel United form and stats

2 victories, 1 draw and 3 defeats. That’s what Lommel United have to build on here at Soevereinstadion in the First Division B. Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Lommel, their manager L. Manning and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.

Lommel manager L. Manning and his team return home after a 3-3 draw away versus Deinze (placed 3rd) in the First Division B. Trouble was brewing at the score 0-2 against Deinze last time out, but a goal from Arthur Sales completed a comeback to a draw result for Lommel. As you can tell by the result above, the goals flowed freely in the previous game and the stadium rocked. Could there be another goal fest today?

Preceding that match was the home game against Excelsior Virton that was lost 1-3.

It's the second away game in a row for Westerlo, but there's smiles all around after the 5-1 victory versus Lierse Kempenzonen (placed 4th) in the First Division B last time out.
