Fashion rescues a point for Oostende

Zambian striker Fashion Sakala scored his fourth goal of the season to rescue a point for KV Oostende who came from a goal down to hold Antwerp to a 1-1 draw in a week nine Belgian Jupiler Pro league encounter.

The two sides all looked to take an early lead with Dieumerci Mbokani and Fashion Sakala threatening on either side. It was, however, Antwerp who broke the deadlock as they were awarded a penalty and Congolese striker Dieumerci Mbokani dispatched it off easily to put Antwerp in the lead from the spot 15 minutes into the match.

Fashion Sakala scored from a rebound 15 minutes into the second stanza to level matters. The two sides could not find the deciding goal and settled for a point each.

The draw takes Oostende to 11 points and they occupy the 11th place on the log while Antwerp is fourth with 16 points.
