Paul Onuachu was the matchwinner as Midtjylland secured a 1-0 away victory over Soenderjyske in a Danish Superliga encounter on Friday evening.

The lanky forward’s goal came in the 73rd - after he benefitted from a Gustav Wikheim assist - to lead Jess Thorup’s side to their fourth consecutive win in the division.

Onuachu’s effort at the Sydbank Park was his seventh in nine league encounters, 11th in 15 appearances in all competitions this season.

The 23-year-old was taken off in the 89th minute while compatriot, Rilwan Hassan was replaced by goal provider, Wikheim in the 20th minute after he was at the receiving end of a hard tackle.

The Wolves are top of the Danish topflight log after garnering 25 points from 12 games. And they welcome Horsens to the MCH Arena in their next league encounter on October 20.
