Wins for both Bruges teams on Sunday evening

Supporters of both teams from the West Flemish capital Bruges had something to celebrate on Sunday evening. The players and training staff at Club Brugge will be especially relieved that the team managed to beat Sporting Lokeren at home by one goal to nil. The Club Brugge fans’ patience was wearing thin after a series of poor result. Several dozen angry fans even stormed a training session on Saturday to vent their malcontent.

Tom De Sutter’s 22 minute goal was enough to give club all three points against a below par Lokeren. The result sees Club move back into third place with 29 points from 14 games. Sporting Lokeren is 7th with 23 points.

Onwards and upwards for Cercle

Cercle Brugge are on the up. Thursday evening’s 2-0 win in the Bruges derby saw the association climb up away from the danger zone. A second victory would see Lorenzo Staelen’s men move yet further up the table.

An eventful first half in Cercle’s match at Waasland-Beveren saw the West Fleming being denied a penalty after Blindelle brought down Kabananaga inside the box. At the other end, Mertens cleared a Trickovsk shot from the line.

Cercle’s best chance of the half came from Buyl, but his shot was saved by an alert Coosemans. Trickovski was the danger man for Waasland-Beveren. However, an alert Cercle keeper Delle was able to keep a clean sheet.

The only goal of the match came from Cercle’s Van Acker on 59 minutes.

Wassland-Beveren pushed forward but was unable to score an equaliser. The result sees Cercle move up to 8th place with 17 points from 14 games. Waasland-Beveren is 15th with 9 points.
