Zulte-Waregem suffered their first defeat of the Belgian play-offs as they went down 3-2 away to Lokeren on Sunday.

The visitors, seeking to move above Standard Liege and go top of the standings, took an 18th minute lead through Theo Bongonda, but Hans Vanaken levelled the match seven minutes before the break.

Hamdi Harbaoui then put Lokeren in front on the hour mark, and although an Alexander Scholz own goal briefly levelled the scores in the 77th minute, substitute Nill De Pauw scored the winner three minutes later, seconds after coming on.
