Aue - A late Jan Hochscheidt header was enough to keep FC Erzgebirge Aue's heads above water for another season as the perennial strugglers ran out 1-0 victors at already-relegated SV Sandhausen 1916.

The result proved enough to keep Aue ahead of SG Dynamo Dresden in 15th on goal difference despite the latter's 3-1 success at home to SSV Jahn Regensburg. While Dresden now face a play-off against 3. Liga side VfL Osnabrück to determine their future, Aue can begin planning for a third straight season in the second flight.
