Kaiserslautern - 1. FC Kaiserslautern gave their promotion hopes a boost after a dramatic 3-2 win over FSV Frankfurt.

Beaten by FC Bayern München in the DFB Cup in midweek, Kaiserslautern were caught cold when Mathew Leckie gave the visitors an early lead, but Florian Dick' stunning volley off the underside of the crossbar brought the Red Devils level. They then took the lead through Mohamadou Idrissou in the 37th minute, but were pegged back within 60 seconds when Andrew Wooten headed in. Dick set up Markus Karl to restore Lautern's lead on the stroke of half-time, and after a few scares in the second half, were finally able to celebrate a victory that takes them to within three points of the promotion play-off spot with three games of the season remaining.
