SpVgg Greuther Fürth scored a late equaliser to deny new SC Paderborn 07 head coach Rene Müller a debut win on Matchday 25.

SC Paderborn 07 1-1 SpVgg Greuther Fürth

Goals: 1-0 Helenius (19'), 1-1 Vukusic (83')

17th-placed Paderborn went into the game having just relieved Stefan Effenberg of his coaching duties on the back of a 12-match winless run, but the relegation-threatened club got off to a dream start when Nicklas Helenius headed in a cross from Süleyman Koc.

After surviving a handful of further scares, Fürth grew into the contest in the second half and had chances to level through Sebastian Frei and Robert Zulj, before deservedly pegging the home side back seven minutes from time through substitute Ante Vukusic’s close-range finish.
