Aalen - VfR Aalen took an important step on the road to securing their Bundesliga 2 status for another year thanks to a 2-1 win over their mid-table neighbours FSV Frankfurt.

The hosts began the brighter of the two and were rewarded shortly after the half-hour mark when Robert Lechleiter headed home at the back post. The guests clawed their way back into the game after the break and pulled level when Mathew Leckie's stepover completely bamboozled Oliver Barth, allowing him to set up Odise Roshi for an easy tap-in. However, Aalen were not to be denied as Marcel Reichwein headed in an 85th minute winner to all but secure the hosts' Bundesliga 2 survival.
