Battling Buffalos suffer unlucky defeat away at Kortrijk

Away at KV Kortrijk, Gent went down to 10 men in the first half after Yaremchuk was sent off for a push. Despite this, the Buffalos were the better side before the break and came closest to scoring through Bukari's strike from distance. Early in the second half Selemani put Kortrijk in front, before Makarenko's swirling effort from a rebound struck the bar. A determined Gent side then fought back. Mohammadi hit a great shot but Ilic tipped it onto the bar and Bukari headed the rebound over. Bukari again, Bezus, Kleindienst and Depoitre all had big chances but the Buffalos could simply not find an equaliser, so when the final whistle blew Kortrijk could celebrate a flattering three points.
