18 February 2012 23:17

Gent missed an opportunity to move into second place in the Belgian First Division after being held to a 1-1 draw at Lokeren on Saturday.

Benjamin De Ceulaer gave the home side the lead after 22 minutes and while Gent equalised through Remi Mareval 10 minutes later, the third-placed club could not manage a winning goal and remain two points behind Club Brugge, who play on Sunday.

Cercle Brugge moved into fifth place after overcoming an 18th-minute opener from Derick Ogbu to beat OH Leuven 3-2.

Igor Vetokele and Gregory Mertens scored either side of half-time to give Cercle the lead, before Radek Dejmek's 64th-minute equaliser threatened to ruin the visitors' day.

But Kristof D'Haene secured three points for Cercle when he scored in the 79th minute.

Genk also won away from home, 2-1 over Mons, thanks to goals from Christian Benteke and Kevin De Bruyne.

In other results, bottom-placed Sint-Truiden ended a five-match losing streak with a 1-1 draw at home against Lierse and Mechelen came from behind to beat Beerschot 2-1.
