Anderlecht, that granted some of their players some rest tonight with the upcoming game against Partizan, won with 0-3 in Lokeren. Though a good Proto was needed to keep the nill on the scoreboard for the visitors.
Anderlecht started doubting with many new players in the formation. Though that didn't stop Kljestan from opening the score with a header after a good center from Gillet.
Lokeren then created some chances due to lack of concentration in the Anderlecht defence. A good Proto prevented De Pauw from equalised right before the break.
Also by the start of the second half, Proto had to keep Lokeren from equalising. The pressure lifted a bit when Boussoufa passed, while falling, to Kanu who doubled the visitors' lead. Eventually, Boussoufa himself put the 0-3 on the scoreboard. He was pulled down in the box and converted the penalty himself. A few minutes earlier, Proto, him again, kept the home side from scoring.
