Full report

Dortmund were looking to move into third place with a win over the bottom placed side in the league but the script didn’t quite go to plan for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

After an indifferent start, Torsten Frings side took the lead and shocked everyone in the Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion, as Marcel Heller took full advantage of Erik Durm’s poor positioning to set up American striker Terrence Boyd for his first of the season.

The home side looked like they were heading into the break with the slender lead but returning utility man Raphael Guerreiro found his third of the season – to level the scoring.

Emre Mor did well to skin his marker before finding the Portugal international in the area, who slotted home.

Matthias Ginter nearly put the visitors ahead two minutes into the second half after the earlier goal scorer Guerreiro picked up out with a fine cross – but the towering defenders’ header was blocked off the line.

Nonetheless, it was Die Lilien who took advantage of Dortmund’s lack of cutting edge by finding the lead for the second time in the game.

Forward Sidney Sam showed his class by sending his marker the wrong way with a fake shot, before laying the ball off to substitute Antonio Colak.

The Croatian striker took the ball in his stride to find his fourth of the season and compound Dortmund to their fourth loss of the campaign – ending any hopes of a potential title push.

Despite picking up all three points, Fring’s side remain rooted to the foot of the table – three points behind 17th placed Ingolstadt.
