Lübeck (dpa / lno) - At the start of the second half of the 3rd football league, VfB Lübeck has at least achieved partial success.
On the 20th matchday it was enough for the Schleswig-Holsteiners on Sunday in the promoted duel with the table seventh from Saarbrücken to a 0-0.
VfB, without a win for eight games, remains bottom of the table despite winning points.
Already on Wednesday there is the next chance to end the winless series, then the SpVgg Unterhaching comes to the Lohmühle.
The game was moved to the arena of the ex-second division club FSV Frankfurt.
After the onset of winter in Saarland, the city closed the Saarbrücken stadium.
VfB coach Rolf Landerl changed his starting eleven again to two positions and gave Rieble and Rösler preference over Ramaj and Benyamina.
Thanks to Keeper Reader, who saved his team against Mendler from an early deficit (4th / 6th minute), VfB survived the FCS 'initial offensive without damage.
On the soapy course, a chaotic game developed without any notable highlights.
When Günther-Schmidt from Saarbrücken saw the yellow-red card 15 minutes before the end of the game, Landerl put the majority on the offensive again and brought Benyamina and Ramaj for Mende and Thiel.
But it was no longer enough for a goal, as Ramaj missed his big chance shortly before the final whistle (90th).
