Brief lull

The game has hit a quiet moment as both teams begin to ring the changes. With their ten man struggling somewhat, Fürth looked to have hit a wall in terms of energy levels.

Green on

USMNT international Julian Green has been thrown into the Fürth mix.

Afolayan booked

Afolayan wrestles Asta to the floor and that's going to be a yellow card for the Pauli player.

Hosts bossing it

Paqarada has a a shot that is deflected wide. It's one-way traffic at the moment.

Pauli take the lead!

The hosts knock it around outside the Fürth area and a pass is lifted into the mixer. Haddadi and Metcalfe jump for it but the ball comes off the former and drops onto Afolayan's boot. A volleyed finish powers in and the home side have completed the turnaround.

Vasilj rescues Pauli

A sloppy back pass and Fürth are in! Ache slashes at a shot from the near post but Vasilj is able to get a block on that.

Early chance

Pauli are straight at it with Daschner taking aim towards the far post from the right. Linde saves that one easily enough.

Away we go again

Fürth get us back underway in the second half. The visitors have introduced Damian Michalski into proceedings.

Half time

What a half that was! Fürth took the early lead through Ache, who then had another ruled out for offside as the visitors swarmed all over their opponents. Saliakas woke Pauli from their slumber with a well-worked goal before things calmed somewhat. The Cloverleaves were then reduced to ten after Jung's straight red.

Fürth down to ten

Jung gets himself into a terrible mess at the back, the Fürth man not knowing to do when in possession. Daschner nips in and steals possession and he may just be away towards goals, but Jung grapples him down. The referee flashes a straight red and the home fans roar in delight.

Saliakas's earlier equaliser was his first goal at home this term while he was set up by Jackson Irvine's first assist of the campaign.

Saliakas volley

The ball loops all the way out to the edge of the area from a corner and Saliakas is waiting. The goalscorer takes aim and smacks a low volley at the target. He hits his own man, Paqarada, in the midriff and that's going to hurt for a bit. Fürth clear the loose ball.
31'

Raschl's golden moment

What a chance! John works it to Raschl and suddenly Fürth are in with a shot right in front of the sticks! Fürth's No. 20 gets a little too excited and wellies miles over the crossbar. That was begging to be banged home.

Barnstorming stuff

Both teams continue to go at each other in what has been a superb game of end-to-end football thus far. Pauli appear to have recovered from that desperate start to the game but Fürth are continuing to look adventurous.

The hosts are alive !

Pauli are level following their first serious foray forward. Oladapo Afolayan barges through the centre and flicks a pass to Jackson Irvine, who in turn spreads to Saliakas. The Greek full back drills into the corner and the hosts are on terms.

Goal ruled out

Amazing scenes here. Ache has just had a goal ruled out as Pauli continue their calamitous start to the game. Asta's curling centre from the right flank is left by Eric Smith, allowing Ache - who was about an inch offside - to angle into the far corner.

All Ache

Ache sprints through on the left this time but just runs out of pitch. What a game the Fürth No. 23 is having!

The hosts will be livid with their defending these past few minutes. John is allowed to wander unchallenged inside the Pauli area. The ball is eventually lifted to the back stick. Gideon Jung nods across the face and Ache knocks home.

Hrgota on the spot

Branimir Hrgota netted Fürth's equaliser from the penalty spot when they faced Hannover in a 1-1 draw on Matchday 23.

Fürth form watch

Greuther Fürth's form, meanwhile, has been slightly more patchy of late, with Alexander Zorniger's side winless in two games. The Cloverleaves are much improved since the Autumn, however, losing just three of ten second division fixtures.
