Ghana defender, Masahudu Alhassan finally returned to action for Novara after a three-month lay-off.
The 20-year-old picked up an injury in March and recovered six weeks later but suffered another knock which delayed his come back until this Saturday.
The on-loan left-back lasted the entire duration of the game which ended 1-1 with Lanciano.
Missing in action was fellow Ghanaian Ahmed Barruso who is recuperating from an injury.
Novara have recovered from their poor start as they comfortably lie 5th on the Serie B table.
Masahudu Alhassan will join Serie A side, Udinese next season in what happens to be a 50-50 deal with his mother club, Genoa.
