MOUSCRON, Feb 12 (SW) - Anderlecht moved ahead of Club Brugge at the top of the Jupiler League table on goal difference with a win over Excelsior Mouscron. Brugge, meanwhile, were held to a draw by lowly Sint-Truiden.
Mouscron - Anderlecht 0-1
Anderlecht needed just a solitary goal to overcome struggling Excelsior Mouscron in their match on Saturday, Argentinian Nicolás Frutos scoring the winner on the hour mark to send his side top of the table.
Sint-Truiden - Club Brugge 2-2
Sint-Truiden ignored the fact that they sit right in the thick of the relegation battle and held Club Brugge to a draw, but were unlucky not to win.
Philippe Clement fired the visitors into the lead on six minutes, but Kris Buvens' goal in the 58th minute canceled out that effort.
Rocky Peeters shockingly put the home side into the lead in the 72nd minute, but Grégory Dufer broke Sint-Truiden's hearts with an equalizer near the end.
Beveren - Standard Liège 0-2
Standard are now within a point of the top two sides and have a game in hand after they won at Beveren.
Milan Rapaic put Standard in front just shy of the hour mark from the penalty spot and Marius Niculae secured the full points with a goal ten minutes from time.
Germinal - Zulte-Waregem 2-0
Zulte-Waregem were hoping to keep pace with the top clubs in Belgium, but they fell to defeat at Germinal.
Chris van der Weerden had the home side in front just nine minutes in and Tosin Dusunmu doubled the advantage with seven minutes to play in the first half, all the goals Germinal would need.
Lierse - Lokeren 2-0
Bottom club Lierse got their second win in three games after they disposed of visiting Lokeren.
Alessandro Nunes' penalty on 23 minutes put Lierse into the lead and Stef Wils doubled the advantage right on the half-hour mark to put distance between the two sides.
Cercle Brugge - La Louvière 1-0
Cercle Brugge helped themselves ease away from the bottom of the table with a win over second-from-bottom La Louvière.
Darko Pivaljevic's goal in the 25th minute would prove decisive as the visitors couldn't muster up an equalizer.
Racing Genk - Gent 2-1
Racing Genk went fourth in the league after their Sunday win over Gent.
Bob Peeters put the home side in front with a goal just before the interval, and Gent's Nicolas Lombaerts gifted Genk a 2-0 advantage with an own goal in the 65th minute.
Dario Smoje pulled Gent back into the game with a penalty eight minutes from time, but the visitors got no closer and Genk ran out winners.
