Ghanaian youth attacker Ansah targets victory over KRC Genk in Belgian Championship play-off
Ghanaian youth international Eugene Ansah insist KSC Lokeren must beat KRC Genk to keep their Pro League title hopes alive.
But Lokeren and Genk tasted defeats in their opening day games in the Championship play-offs but the youngster wants Lokeren to quickly put the defeat behind them and push up the six-team table at the expense of Genk though he admits the visitors pose a formidable threat.
“It won’t be an easy game because I think they play better away than they do before their home fans but we als0 need to win this game to come back from last weekend’s defeat,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
We are ready to do something tonight to bring a good feeling to the fans.”
The tie at the Daknamstadion will not just be a clash between Lokeren and Genk but also a meeting between two Ghanaian players – Bennard Kumordzi and Ansah.
Former Kumordzi, the trip brings a good memory as he scored against Lokeren in the regular season game and will be eying a repeat of that performance.
However, his new role in central defence could place a limitation as to how far and frequently he can go forward and attempt at goal.
“He [Kumordzi] scored against us this season and it would be payback time for me if we beat them and most importantly if I score,” he added.
