Bochum (dpa / lby) - One week after the acclaimed home win against Hamburger SV, the Würzburger Kickers clearly missed the next favorite fall.

The bottom of the table lost 0: 3 (0: 1) to the new leaders VfL Bochum on Saturday.

The home win for Bochum made perfect with their goals Robert Zulj (21st minute), Danny Blum (62nd) and Gerrit Holtmann (81st).

The still weak kickers are five points behind the relegation place.

On non-relegation rank 15 there are even seven points.

The Bochum team rehabilitated for the 0: 1 last weekend at Erzgebirge Aue thanks to strong efficiency against again committed Würzburg.

The 1-0 was preceded by a serious defensive mistake by the Franks.

Daniel Hägele could not clear the ball, but this was also due to the place, the ball jumped unlucky.

When the guests got significantly stronger after the break, Blum consistently completed a counterattack in Bochum.

He hit from an acute angle.

Before that, substitute David Kopacz had a good chance of equalizing.

VfL goalkeeper Manuel Riemann was able to fend off his shot from 16 meters (47th).

The Kickers then had to submit to their eleventh away defeat in their twelfth game.

Almost ten minutes before the end, Holtmann muddled past Würzburg keeper Henrik Bonmann in a solo run to decide.
