PREVIEW: ANDERLECHT - MONS
MICHAEL ADUBATO - Friday, August 17, 2012
The Dragons of Mons head up to Brussels tomorrow to take on Sacha Kljestan and Anderlecht in Pro League action.

Coming off a hat trick performance over Cercle Brugge last weekend in which the American registered an assist, Sacha Kljestan will hope to see more playing time than the 25 minutes he was afforded last weekend in Brugge. With the team winning with the current formation and the team at full strength, he may have to just bide his time however before working his way back into the starting line-up.

Mons, on the other hand, are coming off a home tie, 1-1, against Lierse SK in which they under performed. Coach Enzo Scifo threw unsettled Jeremy Perbet into the game but the Frenchman, who is still hoping for a transfer after winning the goal scoring title last season, made no worthy contribution.

The team remains healthy this early in the season although they did release defender Aliou Dia midweek. The Frenchman immediately signed with FC Brussels.

In their two league games last season les Mauves found it impossible to beat the Dragons and had to settle for a point from each game from the newcomers to the top division.
