Munich - 1860 Munich moved up to eighth in the Bundesliga 2 standings after a hard-earned 1-0 win over SpVgg Greuther Fürth on Monday night.

The Bavarian derby sprung to life with 1860’s Dominik Stahl forcing a smart stop from Clover Leaves goalkeeper Wolfgang Hesl in the 13th minute. Hesl’s counterpart Gabor Kiraly followed suit with some heroics of his own, beating away testing efforts from Florian Trinks and Zoltan Stieber, before the hosts defied the wintry elements and took a deserved lead as Stahl thumped home Benjamin Lauth’s measured knockdown eleven minutes into the second half. A Mergim Mavraj header was as close as the visitors came to drawing level, leaving Frank Kramer’s men nursing their second defeat in four outings and with two points to make up on league leaders 1. FC Kaiserslautern.
