Price: 90mins
In the soaring heat drinks breaks interupted play as Magilton choose to field his four trialists; Bertin and Kolsi patrolled the central midfield, with Algerian Manieri and Hreidarrsson's countryman, Sigurdsson playing at centre-half and left-back.

Former England U19 international, Dean Bowditch, is looking to revive his fledging career under Magilton and had Town's best chance as half-time approached, after Haynes had laid the ball on for him but his shot was well saved by the Zulte Waregem Keeper.

The tourists then took the lead in the 45th minute, when after Darren Currie did well to find space to cross from the left, Ian Westlake got his header on target and saw it beat the goalkeeper.

Billy Clarke, the young Irishman, replaced Dean Bowditch upfront in the second-half in the first of a large number of changes as the heat began to take its toll.

Protests met the equlaiser from the home side in the 60th minute. Scott Barron replaced Sigurdsson at left-back at a free-kick for the Belgian side but the refeere allowed the kick to be taken befoer Barron could take up his place for the set piece, from which the ball was flighted to the vacant defensive berth and resulted in a goal after the header, saved by Price, appeared to be kicked in from being in his hands. The protests were to no avail, however, as the goal stood.

Clarke went close with a bicycle kick late on but the Blues were heading for their second draw on their tour, with their next game in Holland, against FC Dordrecht on Friday, with an 8.30pm GMT kick-off.An Ian Westlake header on the stroke of half-time gave the Blues the advantage in their second tour game, before a controversial equaliser for the Belgian side lead to the spoils being shared for the second consecutive game for Town on their current tour of Holland and Belgium.
