MICHAEL ADUBATO - Monday, December 13, 2010
Anderlecht were unable to overcome ten-man Lokeren and had to settle for just a point in Brussels on Sunday evening.

American Sacha Kljestan played 57 minutes for the Belgian champions, who looked nothing like champions as they were unable to take advantage of a one man advantage for just over an hour against a resilient Lokeren side.

Koen Persoons was sent to the showers in the 27th minute after Anderlecht's Moroccan midfielder Mbark Boussoufa bore down on goal and was tripped up by the Belgian defender. The straight red card made life more difficult for Les Mauves as the East Flanders gang dug in in hopes of securing a vital away point.

The home team's second half chances were few and far between with the best being a Marcin Wasylewski 57th minute close range header, followed by Jonathan Legear's effort.

Dropping two points and the fact that Racing Genk destroyed new boys Eupen by a 5 - 1 scoreline, Anderlecht now find themselves out of the top spot, now a point behind the new league leaders.

Up next for Les Mauves is a visit from the Croatians of Hajduk Split on Thursday night. A win as well as a Zenit St. Petersburg victory over AEK Athens down in Greece is the only way the Belgians will continue into the next round of Europa League play. Following that game, they will then travel to Club Brugge over the weekend.
