MICHAEL ADUBATO - Friday, November 26, 2010
Coming off last weekend's narrow 1-0 win on the road, Anderlecht will welcome cellar dwellers Sporting Charleroi to Brussels on Saturday evening.

Having picked up 13 points in their last five league matches, Les Mauves now find themselves just a pair of points out of the top spot behind the leaders Genk.

They'll have to go about their business against Charleroi, who they drew 0-0 earlier in the season, without the services of now long-term absentee Olivier Deschacht who is not expected back until the end of January after ankle surgery. Argentinian Lucas Biglia is also missing due to injury, along with Mbark Boussoufa. The Moroccan international will be assessed prior to the game however.

Charleroi are reporting no injuries at this time but it is unlikely that head coach Csaba László will have a full roster to choose from.

Anderlecht have a crucial Europa Cup game and a long flight to St Petersburg, Russia to take on Zenit in mid-week and must avoid looking past the Charleroi game and underestimating their Jupiler Pro League opponents.
