Aue - Two goals from Arvydas Novikovas earned Aue all three points with a 2-1 win over nine-man Energie Cottbus.

Energie took the lead in the 22nd minute when Erik Jendrisek was fouled inside the penalty area by Kevin Pezzoni and Ivica Banovic converted from the spot, but Aue responded well and created plenty of chances to level before the break.

They had to wait until early in the second half before finally finding the back of the net, however, with Novikovas making the most of a mistake by Robert Almer to score. Novikovas made it two with a direct free-kick, before Cottbus lost Boubacar Sanogo and Alexander Bittroff to red cards.
