MSV Duisburg claimed a potentially priceless three points with a 2-1 victory over Fortuna Düsseldorf that lifted them off the bottom of the Bundesliga 2 table.

MSV Duisburg 2-1 Fortuna Düsseldorf

Goals: 1-0 Onuegbu (46'), 2-0 Obinna (58'), 2-1 Pohjanpalo (67')

After a goalless first half, the home side's nerves were settled when Kingsley Onuegbu headed in a cross from Rolf Fletcher, before Victor Obinna doubled the lead by sweeping home a loose ball in the box.

Fortuna reduced the arrears on 67 minutes when Joel Pohjanpalo finished smartly on the turn, but Duisburg produced a determined rearguard action to hold on for the win and climb to within a point of both the relegation play-off place and Fortuna themselves in 15th.
