The Red Shorts recorded a 3-2 win at home the last match-day, against Wehen. The guests had found the back of the net first, with a goal in the 12th minute. However, the home team retaliated soon enough with an equalizer in the 14th minute.
Later, the hosts added one more goal, and though the visitors had equalized it, they had no answer to the winner slotted in by the Red Shorts in the 76th minute. Meanwhile, the Storks lost 1-2 at home the prior game week against Bielefeld. It was a heartbreaking loss for the hosts.
The visitors had scored the first goal, and led for a long time. The Storks did find an equalizer early in the second half, but they were totally stumped when the guests fired in the winning goal in the dying minutes of the injury time.

Meanwhile, the Storks have nothing to lose as they are comfortably placed in the mid-table, and are just waiting for the season to come to an end.
