It was another dramatic afternoon for Konstantin Kerschbaumer and DSC Arminia Bielefeld as they led twice before eventually losing 4-3 at fellow high-flyers SV Darmstadt 98 on Sunday.
Kerschbaumer's quickly taken corner set up Andreas Voglsammer for the opening goal on the half hour but SVD levelled instantly through German World Cup winner Kevin Großkreutz. Fabian Klos restored Bielefeld' advantage before the interval but the home side refused to lie down. Immanuel Höhn, Großkreutz, and Artur Sobiech all found the target after the break to turn the game in Darmstadt's favour. An injury-time goal from Soren Brandy gave the scoreline more respectability as DSC slipped to sixth after a third game without a win.
Back in England, Zain Westbrooke completed his three-game National League suspension as Bromley netted in the 88th minute to deny Solihull Moors a deserved point at Hayes Lane. George Porter was the match-winner as Moors remain deep in the relegation mire with seven points from 11 games.
Reece Cole and Tom Field were left out of the Newport County and Bradford City squads for Saturday's games against Morecambe and Rotherham United respectively. Veteran striker Kevin Ellison scored twice for Morecambe as they inflicted just a second league defeat of the season on County while a single Romain Vincelot goal was enough to move The Bantams up to third in Sky Bet League One after their derby win.
Jack Bonham also had to watch on as Carlisle United needed a piece of Shaun Miller magic four minutes from time to rescue a point at home to Barnet in League Two. Jean Louis Akpa-Akpro beat Jack's replacement Shamal George after eight minutes to open the scoring but, just as it looked United were heading for a third-straight defeat without scoring, the home side levelled thanks to Miller's improvised overhead kick late on.
Emiliano Marcondes and FC Nordsjaelland will attempt to stretch their advantage at the top of the Danish Superliga to five points this evening when they face second-from-bottom AGF at the Right to Dream Park.
