Belgian First Division: Genk 1 Zulte-Waregem 1

By Football News



Zulte-Waregem missed the chance to move top of the Belgian First Division championship playoff standings after drawing 1-1 with Genk on Sunday.

With leaders and reigning champions Anderlecht faltering to a goalless stalemate on Saturday, Francky Dury's side had the chance to rise to the summit.

But Zulte-Waregem had to settle for a share of the spoils and second position after Genk's Anele Ngcongca cancelled out Davy De Fauw's ninth-minute opener.

Zulte-Waregem are one point adrift of Anderlecht, having drawn their opening two playoff matches, while Genk sit three points off top spot in third.
