Terodde has inspired Schalke to victory as they bounce back from losing to Regensburg in style, with the Bundesliga 2 Robert Lewandowski as sharp as ever.
As thing stand, Schalke are going to spend the night in eighth place. Still plenty of action in Bundesliga 2 this weekend (and a few minutes left here...), but being back in the top half would be a boost for the Gelsenkirchen club.
FIVE MORE MINUTES
Enough for a Fortuna recovery?
TERODDE SEALS IT!
That is surely all three points, and it is Terodde with his sixth goal of the season. Who else? Another cross finds the Schalke hot-shot, who controls the ball well with his chest and then sweeps it in.

The Schalke fans are in full song, trying to lift their team through these final few minutes as the energy levels are sapping and the lead is - remember - just a single goal.
There are a few yellow cards being shown now, and Hoppe is the latest in Robert Hartmann's book.
7 off target
10 on target
10 off target
5 on target
That was almost the equaliser! A great combination and Peterson forces a fine save out of Fährmann, down to his right to turn the ball behind for a corner.
Mehmet Can Aydin
In a roundabout way, that header from Hennings also came from the corner, though there was a succession of passes before the cross finally came in for his flick header, which had a few fans holding their breaths before it flew wide of the far post.
AND ANOTHER ONE...
No major incident from that corner, but Tanaka's shot is deflected behind for another corner.
HENNINGS CLOSE, BUT OFFSIDE
Hennings hits the post for Fortuna, but as soon as the danger passes, the linesman's flag is raised and it would not have counted anyway.

Terodde is looking to pounce again inside the area and his presence is making Kastenmeier nervous. The Fortuna custodian makes a hash of that, but Terodde turns the loose ball wide of the goal. Let-off for Fortuna.
TANAKA TRIES HIS LUCK
It comes from quite a distance, and misses by quite a distance too, but it was worth having a go, at least to give Fortuna a bit of belief.
DREXLER CROSS OR SHOT?
It probably was meant to be a cross from Drexler, but it turned out to be a dangerous shot which Kastenmeier did well to tip behind. Another corner for Schalke.
CHANCES FOR FORTUNA
Three's a crowd, and that is the number of chances Fortuna managed to crowd into a bit of pinball in the Schalke area, Hennings and Appelkamp having the best of them before another corner is forced. There was a shout for a handball in there too, but VAR says no.
BÜLTER ON THE BREAK!
Bülter maybe should have done better with that. Hennings has a chance at one end, but Schalke are quick to break and Bülter leads a two v two charge, but his shot is weak and easy for Kastenmeier.
Situation No penalty
Decision No penalty
The side who have delivered the most crosses in Bundesliga 2 are, you might not be surprised to hear, Schalke. And how did they just take the lead? Correct - from a cross.
TERODDE STRIKES EARLY!
Not even a minute is on the clock and Schalke have the lead! In true predatory style, he meets Drexler's cross from the left and prods the ball in ahead of Kastenmeier! Schalke lead!
GOAL!2 : 1
Schalke get the ball rolling again at the start of the second half.
A half with chances aplenty and, on balance, perhaps a fair scoreline, though the hosts created the better chances towards the end of the half and Kastenmeier was kept busy in the Fortuna goal.
ONE ADDITIONAL MINUTE
Just 60 seconds before we can all catch our breath.
NAREY OR FAR
It is another wayward effort from Narey, who again meets the ball following a corner, Fortuna's third of the game, but threatens only the Schalke fans behind their team's goal.
Terodde creates room for another chance, but Kastenmeier pushes the ball away, another corner for Schalke.
BÜLTER HITS THE POST!
Bülter goes close to giving Schalke the lead – as close as you can go, really, without hitting the back of the net as he strikes the post – it is the fourth time this season that Schalke have been denied by the woodwork!
NEDELCU NUTS IT
Nedelcu meets a corner from the left with his head, but it is straight at Fährmann in between the Schalke sticks.

ANOTHER CHANCE FOR SCHALKE
Bülter is beginning to be the dangerman here, as he gets in for another shot on the Fortuna goal. The pace of the game is rising once again and, consequently, chances are being created.
CHANCES AT BOTH ENDS
2 off target
4 on target
2 off target
3 on target
A good header from Palsson just clears the crossbar, as Schalke carve out the next opportunity of the match.
After that furious opening, both sides are catching a breath and the pace has dropped a little. Caution is prevailing at present.

BÜLTER BRINGS SCHALKE LEVEL!
The lead does not last long, and it is Bülter who brings Schalke level, showing excellent composure to take Terodde's pass in his stride and slot it past Kastenmeier. Game on!
GOAL!1 : 1
APPELKAMP UPSETS THE APPLE CART!
The next chance is a goal! Appelkamp dinks the ball past Fährmann after Narey shows greater accuracy with a headed assist to put Appelkamp through for his sumptuous finish, and the guests are in front!
GOAL!0 : 1
Narey gets another shot away, and this one is also not on target. Chances at both ends.
From the corner, Terodde brings the very best out of Kastenmeier in the Fortuna goal, and the rebound finds Bülter, who goes within a whisker of giving Schalke the lead.
Huge opportunity for the hosts! Terodde takes a sweeping ball down on his chest and drills the ball towards goal, bringing a fine save out of Kastenmeier before the ball is cleared for a corner!
An early foul down the left wing gives Fortuna a free-kick which makes its way across to Narey, but the summer signing from Hamburg gets his foot under the ball too much and hoofs his volley into the crowd.
A vociferous welcome for the teams as they take to the field, admittedly the boys in (Royal) blue the focus of much of the excitement among the fans.
