On Saturday Lierse played their annual pre-season friendly at the home of town rivals Lyra (4th div). It was one way traffic in which Lyra barely mounted an attack of note on Lierse's goal.
Bekoe had the first chance for Lierse, but his shot hit the post. A few minutes later Adesanya scored the opening goal from a header. On 24 minutes a 'goal' from Bekoe was ruled out for offside. A few minutes later however, Lierse did make it 0-2. Yasser found himself through on ex-Lierse keeper Jochem Tanghe, and calmmy doubled Lierse's lead. Just past the half hour mark an effort from Claes was blocked, but Yasser scored from the rebound: 0-3.
At halftime Lierse made 4 changes: Frans, Ayew, Dequevy and Bidaoui replacing Wils, Nyason, Yasser and Adesanya.
Lierse scored with their first chance after the break. Bidaoui providing the assist for Bekoe: 0-4. Just after that the only chance in the match worthy of the name for Lyra, but Goris saved without too many problems.
With fifteen minutes remaining Frans headed wide from a corner. Lierse continued to have chances to extend their lead in the closing stages, but the match slowly meandered towards the final whistle. Bidaoui was just unable to convert an assist from Claes. The last chance was for Ayew, whose shot from distance was parried to Heymans, but his follow up was saved twice by the Lyra keeper.
This week Lierse go on a midweek trip to Holland, with a friendly match on Wednesday. On Saturday Lierse take on first division Lokeren.
