Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu is off the mark for the season after scoring for Genk on Saturday.

Onuachu was on target as Genk defeated Oostende 2-1 away from home in the Belgian Jupiler.

In what was the seventh match of the season, Onuachu fired the equaliser for Genk to cancel out Fraser Hornby's 3rd-minute opener.

It was his first goal of the season, putting a halt to a run of eight (8) matches without a goal for Genk.

Genk has moved close to leaders Royal Antwerp after a come-from-behind win at Oostende on Saturday evening.

Goals from Onuachu and man of the match, Daniel Munoz saw Genk come from behind to seal all three points away from home.

The win was the eighth of the season in 10 matches and sees them move up to second on the table, just two points behind leaders Royal.

Genk has also now won three of the last matches in the league and extended their unbeaten run to nine (9) matches.

Next Saturday Genk will host KV Kortrijk, with Onuachu hoping to add to his tally this season.
