Paul Onuachu was on target on Thursday night as Genk played out a 1-1 with Royal Antwerp in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League.

The fixture was initially scheduled for February 9, but due to severe weather conditions, it was postponed for four days.

Three of the previous five meetings between these two have ended all square including the last two.

The 25-year-old Onuachu gave the Smurfs the lead in the 11th minute, putting in a powerful header from Theo Bongonda's cross.

They were, however, hard done by after Danish right-back Joakim Maehle put the ball into his own net six minutes to the half-time break.

Onuachu was taken off in added time for other Nigerian in former Mountain of Fire FC forward Stephen Odey.

The ex-FC Midt Midtjylland man has taken in his Belgian top-flight goal tally this term to eight, coupled with one assist.

Genk occupy the final championship play-off spot of sixth with 38 points, four clear of their closest challengers Zulte Waregem.

They next host Standard Liege at the Luminus Arena on Sunday evening.
