Emmanuel Onariase helped Cheltenham Town to a clean sheet and a precious three points in the Sky Bet League Two relegation battle after they won 1-0 at Leyton Orient on Saturday. The only goal of the game arrived midway through the first-half as Carl Winchester smashed home from long-range. The Os battled back in the second-half and passed up a golden chance to equalise on the hour as Scott Brown denied Callum Kennedy from the penalty spot. It’s now back-to-back wins and clean sheets for Gary Johnson’s side as they move six points clear of the League Two drop zone ahead of Tuesday’s home game with Carlisle United.
In Germany, SV Wuppertaler and Jan Holldack made it 13 goals in three games since the resumption of the Regionalliga West earlier this month with a 4-1 win over RW Ahlen on Saturday. Jan had an early chance to give the visitors the lead, his shot kept out by the Ahlen goalkeeper, but SVW did take the lead midway through the half: Peter Schmetz’s turning home from close range. Enzo Wirtz made it 2-0 14 minutes into the second-half but Ahlen pulled one back from the penalty spot two minutes later. Andreas Ivan settled any Wuppertaler nerves by adding a third shortly after and he wrapped up the points with his second late on as SVW move up to fourth in the table.
Dynamo Dresden continued to keep up the pressure at the top of the 2.Bundesliga with a 4-1 derby win over FC Erzgebirge Aue. With Andy Gogia still sidelined through injury, the game was over as a contest by half-time. Jannik Muller opened the scoring for Dynamo on the quarter hour before Niklas Kreuzer smashed home five minutes later to double the lead. Stefan Kutschke then added two more before the break to seal a first win in four league matches. Dimitrij Nazarov pulled one back for the home side from the penalty spot but the three points see Dynamo climb back up to fifth in the table.
