Bundesliga officials have awarded Schalke the full points for Friday’s abandoned match against St Pauli.

The game was abandoned two minutes from regular time with Schalke leading 2-0 after a plastic beer mug was thrown at a match official.

Security staff had to use umbrellas to shelter players and officials from missiles as they made their way from the pitch.

“We expected this decision,” Schalke’s sports director Horst Heldt said. “We are happy that we have now officially won.”

The decision to hand Schalke the win sees them move into tenth on the table, while relegation-battlers St Pauli drop to 17th on the standings.
