Tau earned his eighth consecutive start after getting on the scoresheet in their thumping victory over Kortrijk last Friday.

The hosts were on the front foot in the early exchanges as Francis Amuzu and Peter Zulj had strikes from outside the box in the first five minutesm, but Antwerp goalkeeper Jean Butez was on hand to make a couple saves.

The visitors were fancying their chances in the closing phase of the first stanza, as Pieter Gerkens almost broke the deadlock just before the break with a strike from outside the box that forced shot-stopper Hendrik Crombrugge into a fine save.

The game was tight in the early stages of the second stanza, with both sides trying their luck with long range efforts that did not make Crombrugge and Butez work.

Paul Mukairu eventually broke the deadlock for Vincent Kompany's charges in the last 14 minutes with a curling strike from the edge of the box into the far corner after he was teed up by Albert Lokonga.

Tau was substituted almost immediately thereafter, with Josh Cullen getting on in his place but Anderlecht held on to move up to within two points of leaders Charleroi, who have a game in hand on the log.
