Frasher Hornby enjoyed the perfect evening for KV Kortrijk, scoring and assist a goal in their 3-1 win at RFC Seraing (August 25). The 20-year-old joined on a season-long loan in late-August but has been out of action due to injury. He’s now returned to fitness and contributed two goals in his second appearance to send Kortrijk into the last-16 of the Beker van Belgie (Belgian Cup).

Hornby broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute before Ali Sanogo equalised for the hosts less than 10 minutes later. Hornby then turned provider, setting up Herve Kage for Kortrijk to regain their lead. The Scotland u21 international was brought off in the 79th minute before Julien de Sart put the game beyond doubt in injury time with a third goal.

The Everton youngster made his debut in a 3-2 defeat at home to KV Mechelen (September 20) but had a much better time five days later. Next up are Gent (September 28) – a side who are currently seven places and six points better off than Kortrijk in the Belgian First Division A. With only Club Brugge (3) and Standard Liege (6) boasting a better defensive record than Gent, Hornby may be in for a difficult evening.
