“We played a good second period,” a disappointed Dessers told reporters after the game.
“But this defeat is my responsibility, because I miss the penalty and in addition I conceded the corner on Badji’s goal. I have to do better. It’s a shame, because after the break we put more pressure and we played better.
” It was a great opportunity to take points and we didn’t deserve to lose this Sunday “.
The 25-year-old has scored once in four league outings for Genk this season.
Brugge will travel away to Beerschot for their next league clash on Monday, September 14.
