Ghent dominance only rewarded with a draw

KAA Gent have won their first point in the regular competition in the AFAS Stadium of Mechelen. We were dominating the first half and deserved the 0-1 lead at halftime after a Kalifa Coulibaly assist permitted Kalu to score. We could easily have doubled the advantage after the break with Kubo hitting the post. The first victory seemed a fact till Matthys scored the equalizer for the home team in the dying minutes. A rather disappointing draw after what should have been a good win if we would've converted our chances efficiently.
