Henry Onyekuru was on target as Eupen settled for a 3-3 draw against Lokeren in a Uefa Europa League playoff clash in Belgium on Saturday.

The 19-year-old continued with his impressive scoring form netting four times in three matches in a row featuring alongside compatriot, Anthony Bassey and George Jamabo in the six-goal thriller.

Luis Garcia's effort had put Jordi Condom's men in front but strikes from Tom De Sutter and Bob Straetman gave the visitors the lead before Christian Bruls' leveled matters for the hosts.

However, the Nigerian forward scored in the 42nd minute to hand Eupen a first-half advantage before Marko Miric struck late to snatched a draw for Runar Kristinsson's side.

It is the Nigerian striker's 16th goal of the season in all competitions in 31 appearances this term with his Belgian outfit.

Eupen are second on the play-off table with five points from three games - one behind leaders Genk. They will face third-placed Kortrijk in their next match on April 22.
