Fortuna Düsseldorf took a huge step towards survival in Bundesliga 2 after a 1-0 win over fellow relegation battlers FSV Frankfurt 1899 took them up to 15th place.

Fortuna Düsseldorf 1-0 FSV Frankfurt 1899

Goals: 1-0 Demirbay (49')

After a tense first half that was dominated by the hosts, Kerem Demirbay broke the deadlock with a cool finish inside the box following good work from Oliver Fink.

The visitors attempted a fight back but lacked any real attacking threat, and they have now lost six matches in a row, and with a far inferior goal difference to Fortuna in 15th, their best chance of safety appears to be via the relegation play-off place.
