Tau made his first start for Anderlecht after coming off the bench to win a penalty in their 1-1 draw with Excel Mouscron last Sunday.

Vincent Kompany's charges were off to a bad start after Robbie D'Haese gave Oostende the lead in the 11th minute with a strike from the centre of the box into the top corner.

Tau was heavily involved as Anderlecht were probing for the equaliser, giving Jeremy Doku and Antoine Colassin chances before the half-hour mark but the two players could not find the target.

However, the visitors were in further trouble in the 33rd minute after Marco Kana conceded a penalty from a handball inside the box and Makhtar Gueye converted the spot-kick with a strike into the bottom corner to give Oostende a two-goal lead.

Anderlecht pulled a goal back straight from the restart as Adrien Trebel netted with a strike from outside the box that found the top corner.

Kompany's men were fired up after the break as Tau equalised nine minutes into the second stanza with a left-footed strike past goalkeeper Guillaume Hubert from point-blank range after he went clear from Trebel's through ball.

Tau came close to snatching the lead for Anderlecht in the 65th minute with a strike from outside the box that was saved by Hubert.

Lucas Nmecha had a chance to snatch the winner for Anderlecht in the last four minutes with a strike from the right side of the box but Hubert kept Oostende in the game with a save in the bottom right corner.

Tau was substituted in the last minute, with Landry Dimata coming on in his place as Anderlecht were chasing a winner but Oostende held on for the share of the spoils, as Kompany's troops moved up to fifth while the hosts picked up only their second point of the season.
