GAME OVER !

What a finish that was! Just when it seemed Hannover were about to celebrate a come-from-behind win against Pauli, Irvine pops up deep in added time to score his second goal in as many games to rescue a point for the visitors!

SCENES !!!

Amazing! Deep in injury time Paqarada sends a hail Mary free kick into the box. There's a scramble, the ball pings around before Irvine nods in and wheels away in celebration.

KING KÖHN

What a goal this is! Hannover work the ball into the Pauli area. Max Besuschkow takes possession and has a look up before rolling a pass back for Derrick Köhn. The 23-year-old sweeps a superb shot first time high and out of the reach of Smarsch.

LIGHTNING KÖHN

TOP ENTERTAINMENT

Both teams have provided us with a thrilling first half and, it has to be said, the scoreline represents what has been a very evenly balanced encounter. The outcome of this one is impossible to predict.

A PAULI RARITY

With St. Pauli unchanged for tonight's Matchday 2 game, it's worth remembering the last time the Kiezkicker named the same starting XI in successive encounters was on Matchdays 22 and 23 last term.

BESUSCHKOW'S CENTURY

Hannover's Max Besuschkow is all set for his 100th second division appearance this evening!

PAULI TEAM NEWS

Pauli coach Timo Schultz will be without injured forward Etienne Amenyido and his summer signing David Nemeth for tonight's Matchday 2 encounter. Watch out for captain Leart Paqarada - who weighed in with a goal and an assist last weekend - and Australia midfield dynamo, Jackson Irvine.

HANNOVER TEAM NEWS

Midfielder Gael Ondoua misses out this evening after the 26-year-old picked up an injury that forced him out of Hannover's Matchday 1 loss. Fabian Kunze steps into the void. Havard Nielsen - who scored last weekend - takes over from Hendrik Weydandt up front.
