Hansa 3-1 Oberhausen

Rostock climbed out of the bottom three after making it three wins in a row and five games unbeaten in all since Andreas Zachhuber took charge. 
Hansa went in front through Mario Fillinger in the 21st minute, the midfielder taking advantage of a mistake by Oberhausen's Kim Falkenberg. Eight minutes later however, the visitors were level, Tim Reichert providing the finishing touch to a sharp counter-attack.
The Hanseatic port side continued to apply the pressure however and got their reward five minutes before half time, the excellent Kevin Schindler beating RWO keeper Sören Pirson at the near post. 
Rostock were breathing more easily ten minutes after the restart when Enrico Kern headed them 3-1 up. That would prove to be the end of the scoring, with the result leaving Hansa two points clear of third-from-bottom Osnabrück.
