Aue - FC Erzgebirge Aue remain entrenched in the Bundesliga 2 relegation zone after losing 1-0 at home to 1. FC Nürnberg on Wednesday evening.

Stipe Vucur and Arvydas Novikovas were both guilty of squandering gilt-edged opportunities for the hosts in a goalless first-half, and they were made to pay for their profligacy twenty minutes after the restart when Jakub Sylvestr, who scored the winner when the two sides met on the opening day of the season, fired home from inside the area to give Nürnberg the lead against his former employers. Aue piled the pressure on in the closing stages, but der Club held on to stretch their winning league run to three matches.
