Duisburg - Dustin Bromheuer denied 1. FC Köln all three points with a last-gasp equaliser for MSV Duisburg, cancelling out Thomas Bröker’s first-half strike and compromising the visitors’ promotion aspirations.

Knowing that three points were needed to join 1. FC Kaiserslautern in a share of third place, the Billy Goats started brightly with Bröker almost setting up Stefan Maierhofer early on. It was only a matter of time before the visitors made their pressure count with Bröker winning possession and curling a shot high into the far top-right hand corner of the goal.

Having done the bare minimum by taking the lead, Köln sat back, happy to soak up the pressure, although they had not counted on conceding a last-minute equaliser through Bomheuer, who dented Köln’s promotion hopes and took the Zebras seven points clear of the bottom three.
