Former Portsmouth favourite Christian Burgess scores dramatic late winner for Union St Gilloise

Union St Gilloise scored a dramatic late winner over LASK to keep their hopes of qualification to the next round of the Europa League alive. It was former Portsmouth fan favourite Christian Burgess who headed home deep into added time to move the Brussels side into second place behind Liverpool.

Union had gone 1-0 down during the first half when Moses Usor volleyed home from a well placed Filip Stojkovic cross. Mohamed Amoura looked to have equalised before half-time, but Lazare Amani was adjudged to have fouled Sascha Horvath in the build up.

After half-time, Union continued to apply pressure but could not find a breakthrough. That was until Loïc Lapoussin drove into the box and was brought down by the LASK defence. Cameron Puertas took the spot kick and found the bottom corner. In the 94th minute the Swiss midfielder turned provider. His deep free-kick was met by Burgess, who headed beyond Tobias Lawal to win the game.

Union will face LASK in Austria in their next Europa League game.
