Fürth - Greuther Fürth’s good form continued as they saw off SC Paderborn 07 with an clinical 3-0 win at the Trolli Arena.

Niclas Füllkrug had scored four in the Clover Leaves’ 6-2 thrashing of FC Erzgebirge Aue last week, but he was a by-stander as Zoltan Stieber opened the scoring, slamming home after great work down the left-hand side. Paderborn threatened on occasion but the wind was taken out of their sails when Ognjen Mudrinski held off a defender to double the lead in the first half. Paderborn’s attempts at a comeback faded quickly when Mario Vrancic and Thomas Berthels saw red, leaving Fürth to complete an easy win with the added help of a second goal for Stieber, moving the Bavarian club up to second in the standings.
