PREVIEW: WEEKEND BELGIAN ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
MICHAEL ADUBATO - Friday, December 16, 2011
Sacha Kljestan and Anderlecht will host Lokeren on Sunday, while the battle of the Yanks takes place when Devann Yao's Boussu-Dour travels to Roeselare to take on Tristan Bowen's team.

Anderlecht - Lokeren

Coming off of there Euro win over Lokomotiv Moscow in midweek, Anderlecht will host 11th place Lokeren in league acton at Stade Constant Vanden Stock on Sunday afternoon.

American midfielder Sacha Kljestan, who found the back of the net against the Russians, will take up his customary spot for les Mauves, however his regular central midfield partner Lukas Biglia is still out as he recovers from surgery and is not expected back until February at the earliest. Dieumerci Mbokani made a brief appearance off the bench on Wednesday although he has not trained very much after coming back from an injury of his own. His participation on Sunday is at the moment doubtful.

Sporting Lokeren, who held Standard Liege to a 1-1 draw their last time out, are reporting no new injuries at this time.

Roeselare - Boussu-Dour

Tomorrow afternoon Devann Yao and Boussu-Dour will make the trip to East Flanders to take on Roeselare. Yao has recently returned from injury and came off the bench last weekend to put his name on the scoresheet in the game against Tienen.

Fellow American Tristan Bowen has not seen much playing time since arriving in Belgium on loan but will hope to suit up and face Yao at some point in the game.

Neither team have commented on any new injuries at this time. In the season opener when these sides faced each other, they also shared the points with a 1-1 draw.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
