With a 4:1 victory at SV viktoria aschaffenburg in the bag, the spvgg bayreuth started the return to upper franconian territory. In addition to the first three points, something was missing from the pack: the red lantern was no longer there. The old-timers gave this one away to TSV 1860 rosenheim, who lost 0:2 to FC pipinsried in the basement duel.
Against offensively strong aschaffenburger, which sought again and again over their omnipresent playmaker bjorn schnitzer the fast way forward, had the altstadter offensively in the form of many small pinpricks good answers. It was not long before one of these put the spvgg in the lead. A corner ball from ivan knezevic, recently again and again danger potential, buggendecker steffen eder per head into the meshes.
When the aschaffenburg team increased the number of shots, christoph fenninger, who had recently been called up to the starting eleven after a strong joker performance against garching, scored an ice-cold goal that was well worth seeing. The ex-saarbrucker, who has scored zero goals so far this season, converted a cross from johannes gollas with a fine finish from the inside. If viktoria keeper peter neuberger had not made an excellent save against chris wolf just before the break, the game would have been decided before halftime.
Bjorn schnitzer, however, made the game exciting again with a spectacular free kick from 20 yards out. Aschaffenburg stayed at the printer. But the "yellow and black" players were strong in character from the difficult situation and struck back ice-coldly. Knezevic headed over the viktoria goalkeeper to make it 1:3. And ilyass mirroche, who had entered the game only a few moments earlier, scored the final goal with a shot into the corner that was no less worth seeing.
