Paul Onuachu netted his 20th goal in the Belgian Jupiler this season as he scored in 10-man Genk’s 1-1 home draw against Gent on Thursday, Completesports.com reports.
Onuachu opened scoring in the seventh minute in his 21st league appearance in the current campaign.
However, Onuachu was replaced in the 31st minute for Kristian Thorstvedt.
Also in action was Cyriel Dessers who was brought on with five minutes left in the game.
Genk were reduced to 10 men after Carlos Cuesta was shown a straight red card.
Gent capitalised on the man advantage and equalised on the stroke of half-time through Roman Yaremchuk.
In the 68th minute Genk had the chance to take the lead for the second time in the game, after they were awarded a penalty but Junya Ito missed.
Genk have now failed to win their last three league games (two defeats, one draw).
The draw saw Genk remain in second position on 39 points, nine points behind leaders Club Brugge.
