The Nigerian forward finally put an end to a two-game run without a goal to power his side to the next round of the cup competition
Paul Onuachu banged a late winner for Genk as the Blue-Black downed Sint-Truiden 1-0 to book their place in the quarterfinals of the Belgian FA Cup.
Onuachu last found the back of the net on January 27, netting a brace in his side’s 3-2 victory over Zulte-Waregem.
The 26-year-old fired blank in Genk’s stalemate at Mechelen and the 1-2 home defeat to Vincent Kompany’s Anderlecht.
But the Super Eagles striker shook off his mini-drought to slam home Bryan Heynen’s pass in the 87th-minute and hand John van den Brom’s men the win that draws them closer to a domestic cup triumph.
