Nigerian international Moses Simon was disappointed despite scoring for his club, K.A.A Gent over the weekend.

The forward's goal helped Gent draw 1-1 with KV Kortrijk in a Belgian First Division A match at the Guldensporenstadion on Saturday.

“That I scored does not mean much,” Simon told the club’s official website.

“The opening goal is always important, yes, but I’m disappointed with the end result after we’ve given everything.

The draw left Gent placed 12th on the league standings with 10 points from 11 matches.

“We started quite well in the game and dominated. It was certainly not easy because Kortrijk were good defensively," the 22-year-old continued.

"Still, we had the opportunity to win the match and then it is very unfortunate that it did not happen.

Simon praised Kortrijk’s scorer Herve Kage, who hails from Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), for a well taken goal.

“What went wrong with the equalizer? There was little pressure on Chevalier, the player who gave the pass, but it was also very beautifully finished by Kagé," he added.

Simon has featured in nine league matches for Gent this season - netting once in the process.
