Hanover break winless run with Frankfurt victory

Berlin: Senegal striker Mame Diouf scored his first Bundesliga goal since August as Hanover broke their seven-match winless streak with a 2-0 victory over ten-man Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

Diouf helped ease the pressure on Hanover coach Mirko Slomka when he headed home on 24 minutes for the opening goal, his third of an injury-hit season.

Hungary midfielder Szabolcs Huszti then swung in a superb free-kick on 68 minutes for his sixth goal of the season as Hanover picked up their first win since September to go ninth.

Frankfurt were reduced to ten men for the final half hour when midfielder Martin Lanig was sent off for a harsh second yellow card after a tackle on Poland’s Artur Sobiech following a previous booking.
