Onuachu hits Goal Number 20 for Genk

Paul Onuachu was on target again for KRC Genk in their Belgian Jupiler league game against Gent on Thursday.

It was Onuachu’s 20th league goal of the  campaign but it wasn’t enough to earn Genk the maximum points at home.

 

After failing to score in his previous two matches, the Nigerian Forward put his team ahead in the seventh minute after latching onto a pass from Theo Bongonda.

 

Genk were reduced to ten men, five minutes after going ahead as Carlos Cuesta was shown a straight red card.

 

The night went from bad to worse for the hosts, when on the half hour mark Onuachu picked an injury and subbed off for Kristian Thorstvedt.

 

The away side however took advantage of the set backs and equalised before the break through Roman Yaremchuk.

 

Genk were awarded a golden opportunity to regain their lead from the penalty spot in the 68th minute, but Junya Ito missed.

 

Meanwhile, Cyriel Dessers was introduced to the game with five minutes left to play.

 

The Nigerian replaced Bastien Toma but could not bail Genk out of another disappointing result.
