DSC Arminia Bielefeld beat SV Sandhausen 4-1 to secure their first win in nine games, pulling nine points clear of the relegation places in the process.
Bielefeld made the 400-kilometre journey south to Sandhausen with only two points separating Norbert Meier’s side in 13th from their 12th-placed hosts. The reverse fixture had been a battling 0-0 draw on Matchday 12, but this was a more open affair with Bielefeld defender Felix Burmeister heading home Florian Dick's cross for his first ever Bundesliga 2 goal, before Alexander Bieler returned fire just a minute later in a frenetic first half.
The pace slowed in the second period, before Meier sent on Fabian Klos for Andreas Voglsammer, and the hulking attacker wasted little time in making an impact, forcing home a deflected shot from the edge of the area six minutes after entering the fray. Michael Görlitz then fired the goal of the game into the far top corner with a wicked left-foot shot, before David Ulm capped off a comfortable win from the penalty spot.
