The towering frontman started on the bench before being introduced with 15 minutes remaining.

He ensured Konyaspor's win by scoring the third in stoppage time, which marked his second goal of the season.

Kouka was last on target during Konyaspor's 2-2 draw Turkish league draw with Kasimpasa on 27 September.

Injury problems have blighted his season so far and he has only managed to make some cameo appearances in recent games.

Kouka joined Konyaspor from Greek giant Olympiacos on a season-long loan deal in the summer.

He has been included in Egypt's preliminary squad for next month's African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
