M'Baye Leye scored the only goal of the game as Lokeren condemned Metalist Kharkiv to a sixth consecutive defeat in Europa League Group L.
Neither had anything tangible to play for in this final outing, with Lokeren unable to sneak into the Round of 32 and their Ukrainian hosts rooted to the foot of the table.
Metalist might have salvaged some pride had they registered a first point but Leye's 15th-minute header and a resolute goalkeeping performance from Boubacar Barry ensured that would not happen.
