Racing Genk-owned Super Eagles strikers Onuachu, Dessers score their first goals in October
Racing Genk-owned center forwards Paul Onuachu and Cyriel Dessers ended a mini goal drought by getting on the scoresheet against SV Zulte Waregem and Sparta Rotterdam respectively on Sunday afternoon.

Onuachu had not scored in five matches in all competitions for the Limburg club prior to today's meeting versus Zulte Waregem and Dessers, who has found game time hard to come by at Feyenoord Rotterdam, had failed to score in four games.

After Ito and Thorstvedt scored to give Racing Genk a 2-0 lead at the interval, Onuachu added to the tally for the visitors with a trademark header after a cross was whipped into the box in the 47th minute - his first goal since September 26.

Onuachu has now mustered twelve goals from eighteen matches in all competitions this term. He made way for former Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo after 79 minutes.

Dessers, who is spending the rest of the season on loan in the Netherlands, was the hero for Feyenoord as they left it late but collected all three points in an Eredivisie clash against Maduka Okoye's Sparta Rotterdam at Sparta Stadium.

After some inspired goalkeeping from Okoye to deny the visitors, Dessers, on as a substitute in the 66th minute, netted the game winning goal in the second minute of stoppage time.

His other strikes for Feyenoord also came in league matches, against PSV Eindhoven and NEC Nijmegen in September.
