BRUSSELS, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Racing Genk threw away a chance to join Anderlecht at the top of the Belgian first division when they were held 3-3 at Roeselare on Sunday.
Ivan Bosnjak opened the scoring for Genk three minutes before halftime with Eric Matoukou doubling the visitors' lead in the 55th minute.
Koen De Vleeschauwer hit back for the home side in the 63rd minute before the Croatian Bosnjak struck Genk's third goal 10 minutes later.
A late fightback by the home team earned Roselare a share of the spoils with goals from Genk old boy Paul Kpaka after 74 minutes and Sebastien Dufoor in the final minute.
Anderlecht, who won 2-0 at home to Lokeren on Saturday, top the table on 16 points from six games with Genk two points adrift on 14 points. Westerlo and Charleroi are on 11 points.
Westerlo were held to a scoreless draw at Germinal Beerschot on Saturday while Charleroi were held 2-2 by Beveren.
Lierse remain at the foot of the table with just one point following a 2-1 defeat away to Cercle Bruges and are now three points behind Beveren.
Sunday's other matches saw Club Bruges beat Sint Truiden 3-2 away from home and Ghent and Zulte Waregem finish scoreless. Elsewhere on Saturday, Mons-Bergen won 1-0 at home to Excelsior Mouscron and Standard Liege beat FC Brussels 2-1.
