Powershell & WSUS Updates

can someone help me out here? I'm trying to get WSUS updates via powershell with the command:
$WsusServerAdminProxy.GetUpdates() | ?{-not $_.IsDeclined -and $_.ProductTitles -match "Windows XP” }

That's listing all Updates for Windows XP correctly.. but it lists also the Updates which are for "Windows XP, Windows 2003". But I'd would only decline the updates which are for XP only.

I tried to reach that so: Change -match "Windows XP"  to -eq "Windows XP”, or -like "Windows XP” , but nothing worked.

[reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration") | out-null
$WsusServerAdminProxy = [Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.AdminProxy]::GetUpdateServer($WsusServer,$UseSSL,$PortNumber);
$updates = $WsusServerAdminProxy.GetUpdates() | ?{-not $_.IsDeclined -and $_.ProductTitles -like "Windows XP” }
