Refereeing Pressure Increases as Play-off Season Approaches

In the final stretch towards the play-offs, not only the tension but also the pressure on the arbitration continues to increase. Especially when there are a number of true top posters on the programme.

The eye-catcher will of course be the cracker between Club Brugge and Anderlecht, which was assigned to Erik Lambrechts. He must also manage the semi-final of the Croky Cup between Antwerp and KV Oostende next Thursday.

Three new top refs?

The day before, Lothar D’Hondt, also appointed this weekend for RWDM versus OH Leuven, will take care of the other cup clash between Union and Club Brugge. Still on Sunder Sunday, AA Gent is against Antwerp for Jasper Vergoote.

The match between Union and Standard will then be refereed by Nicolas Laforge, while Eupen and Cercle Brugge will have to listen to Nathan Verboomen’s instructions. Kevin Van Damme is the referee on duty in Charleroi against KRC Genk.

Comeback van Visser

Finally, Brent Staessens was appointed for STVV-Westerlo, but the most striking name is undoubtedly KV Mechelen-KV Kortrijk. There, Lawrence Visser finally celebrates his return as head ref after months of injuries.
