Sacha Kljestan and Anderlecht will try to shake off the disappointment of their Champions League exit when they return home on Saturday to face Zulte-Waregem in Belgian Eerste Klasse action.

After scoring his first league goal last week, Kljestan was not even included on Ariel Jacobs' gameday roster for their Champions League return leg match on Tuesday that ended in a defeat to Serbian club Partizan Belgrade.

The former Chivas USA man will hope to brush off any bitterness about his midweek exclusion and earn some minutes for the Purple & White on Saturday at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.

Given that the American midfielder is fully rested, it would stand to reason that Kljestan will either start or be one of the first options off the bench.

The hosts are off to another strong start in league play with 10 points through four matches.

Zulte-Waregem enter the match with some renewed confidence after thrashing Cercle Brugge last week 4-0 and currently sit in seventh position.

Khaleem Hyland from Trinidad & Tobago has two goals on the young season and will hope to add to that total for the visitors.

Anderlecht's Tom De Sutter remains a long-term absence with an ankle injury while goalkeeper Davy Schollen is still banged up with a knee injury.

Zulte-Waregem coach Bart De Roover has a slew on injuries to deal with including Ludwin Van Nieuwenhuyze, Kevin Roelandts, Thomas Matton and Moussa Traore whom are all likely out for the weekend clash while Nicholas Tamsin and Michiel Jonckheere will be gameday decisions.
