Cottbus - FSV Frankfurt put an end to a run of four games without a win courtesy of a resounding 4-1 win over FC Energie Cottbus on Matchday 15.

Both teams took their time finding their feet in proceedings, but despite enjoying a greater share of control, it was Cottbus who fell behind when Denis Epstein fired home from Zafer Yelen's drilled cross. The hosts pushed forward either side of half-time, but having lacked the necessary precision in the final third had to rely on Amin Affane's sublime free-kick to draw themselves level just past the hour mark. However, Frankfurt wasted little time in reasserting themselves when Nils Teixeira slammed a vicious 25-yard volley into the bottom corner. The visitors took advantage of Cottbus letting their heads drop as Epstein bagged his brace before Edmond Kapllani coolly slotted home from the penalty spot with virtually the last kick of the game to leave Cottbus stranded at the foot of the table.
