MICHAEL ADUBATO - Friday, January 28, 2011
Defending league champions Anderlecht will make the short trip north to Mechelen on Sunday afternoon to take on FC Mechelen who are sitting pretty in mid-table their first year back in the top flight.
American Sacha Kljjestan watched all of last weekend's win over arch-rivals Standard Liege from the bench, but will hope to get back into the mix for Les Mauves. A trio of players picked up injuries last week but it is not yet known if Golden Boot winner Mbark Boussoufa with a calf injury, Jonathan Legear and Jan Polak both with knee injuries, will take part this weekend.
The Flemish team, located just 20 minutes north of Brussels, is reporting no injuries at this time.
In their first meeting of the season in September Anderlecht ran riot against the Yellow-Reds, hitting the back of the net five times.
