MICHAEL ADUBATO - Friday, February 4, 2011
After a scoreless draw against new boys FC Mechelen, Anderlecht will look to return to winning ways when they host Westerlo at Stade Constance Vanden Stock on Saturday evening.

Sacha Kljestan will hope to be on the field for the start of the contest when the Flemish team, who they beat earlier in the season thanks to a pair of goals from teen sensation Romelu Lukaku for the 2-0 scoreline, hits Brussels. Definitely out of the game will be last year's Golden Boot winner, Mbark Boussoufa, who picked up a red card last weekend. Argentinian front man Matias Suarez picked up a hamstring injury last weekend and is expected to miss out as well. Kanu is also suffering from an ankle contusion. Olivier Deschacht, who has been out due to injury as well has returned to training but taking part this weekend might be a bit too optimistic.

The Canaries, who currently sit in 12th place in the Jupiler Pro League standings, are reporting no new injuries at this time.

Kljestan's chances at more playing time have been increased due to the fact that Czech international midfielder Jan Polak, who was expected to leave the club last summer, transfered out to Wolfsburg just before the window closed on January 31st.
