Philipp Schobesberger then registered his fourth goal of the season when he netted with 12 minutes left to play in the game.

Alhassan has made eight appearances since joining the side from Nigeria Professional Football League side, Akwa United.

The 20-year-old will look to build on this form when the Violets make a trip to TGW Arena to confront LASK Linz in Austria Bundesliga outing on Saturday.
