Fürth - SpVgg Greuther Fürth moved to within a single point of Bundesliga 2 leaders 1. FC Köln with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Fortuna Düsseldorf.

Fürth dominated the first half at the Trolli Arena, but lacked any real cutting edge until Ilir Azemi headed in Mergim Mavraj’s flick-on to give Frank Kramer’s side a slender advantage going into half-time. Azemi then finished off a flowing counter-attack to double Fürth’s lead ten minutes into the second period, before Daniel Brosinski’s thirty-yard effort put the hosts further ahead. Charlison Benschop pulled a goal back for Düsseldorf, but Zoltan Stieber completed the scoring twelve minutes from time to close the gap on current league leaders Köln, who play on Wednesday.
