Belgian First Division wrap: Anderlecht edge closer

3 May 2012 01:45

Anderlecht are set to win the Belgian First Division title after a 1-0 win over Gent on Wednesday.

They lead the Championship Playoff Group by seven points with three matches to play after their slender victory against Gent that came thanks to a goal from Kanu.

The Brazilian, who has scored just five times this season, netted after 12 minutes.

And that was enough to give Anderlecht a big lead over Club Brugge with the league title now firmly in their grasp.

The other match on Wednesday saw Genk defeat Kortrijk 4-3 in a thrilling encounter.

A first-half double to Jelle Vossen fired Genk into a 2-0 lead at the break but Pablo Chavarria and Ernest N'For scored after the break to level proceedings.

Christian Benteke hit back with two goals of his own within 14 minutes as Genk surged ahead but Dalibor Veselinovic's 87th minute strike ensured a nervy finish for the winners.

They held on though with the victory enough to lift them above Gent and into third place on the table.
