Aalen - St Pauli moved up to fourth in the Bundesliga 2 standings after a 1-0 win at VfR Aalen.

The Hamburg-based outfit started brightly, but had to wait until the 29th minute to find a way through as Christopher Nöthe took Sebastian Schachten’s pass on the chest, beat two defenders and slotted past Jasmin Fejzic from close range. Aalen might have levelled before the break were it not for Philipp Tschauner’s stunning save from Robert Lechleiter, who asked further questions of the Pauli goalkeeper early in the second half, ultimately to no avail as the visitors held on to make it two wins from two under interim coach Roland Vrabec.
