Hot in demand Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru scored his second goal in three games, which ended as his 12th of the season to help Eupen beat Lokeren 2-1.

Onyekuru set up Ghanaian forward Eric Ocansey for the opener in the 37th minute before Lokeren draw level via the spot, four minutes before the half-time break.

The game appears to be heading to a 1-1 but with ten minutes to go, Onyekuru popped up with what ended as the winner for his side, netting his 12th goal of the season which ended as the winner for his side.

19 year old Onyekuru was awarded the Man of the Match award for his display, which earned his side a vital away win and moved them up to 11th on the log standings in Belgium.

The forward who went on strike to push a move to Scottish champions Celtic in January is widely tipped to depart the team this summer, and the Scottish side will reportedly face competition from English giants Liverpool for his signature.
