Genk coach John van den Brom has said that he hopes Paul Onuachu will continue his scoring form, as they welcome West Ham in the round four Europa League game at the Luminus Arena in Genk, Belgium on Thursday.
The home side is yet to register a win at home in their last seven European games, drawing two and losing five. The Blue and White team currently sit bottom of the team, with their only win coming against Rapid Vienna away.
However, they’ve scored six goals each in their last two games, six away to Saint Eloois in the Belgian Cup, and six away to Waregem in the Belgium Jupiler League.
Paul Onuachu who has gone five games without registering a goal scored on Saturday against Waregem and the coach is hoping he will continue the form against Westham on Thursday.
“First of all, it’s very important that paul score for himself, and he already scored 10 goals for us this season. All the goals, that he made for us are very important also for the team, for the club, for the supporters and for me as a coach, and I was very happy for him and also for the team that he scored last Sunday. I hope that he will continue that tomorrow” John Van den Brom said.
West Ham top group with nine points, after three wins from their last three games. They are yet to concede a goal as well. David Moyes and his team will be hoping to take all maximum points against Genk tomorrow, knowing a win will seal qualification for them.
West Ham will have one eye on their Premier League clash against Liverpool on Sunday and may likely rest some of their players against Genk tomorrow.
