Fürth (dpa) – Coach Marc Schneider managed the first win of the season with SpVgg Greuther Fürth under extreme pressure – and that against the previous leader SC Paderborn .

After his winning goal in the 73rd minute, captain Branimir Hrgota was the celebrated player in the 2nd Bundesliga in the 2-1 (1-1) game at the Ronhof sports park .

Paderborn, on the other hand, fell back to second place behind Hamburger SV after their second defeat of the season. Defender Damian Michalski headed the Fürth ahead in front of 8,530 spectators (43rd). Dennis Srbeny equalized for the guests after a fine move (49th).

The people of Fürth acted purposefully and resolutely. They created a few scoring chances. Dickson Abiama missed the best with a cracking shot on the bar (20th). Paderborn’s attack machine was slow to start. Class flashed when Srbeny, who came on early on to replace injured striker Felix Platte, equalised. Fürth’s goalkeeper Leon Schaffran had no chance against the low shot in his starting eleven debut. Hrgota finally rewarded Fürth with his deflected hit from the turn. After the final whistle, Schneider clenched his fists and hugged his match winner Hrgota.
