Arminia Bielefeld earned a valuable point in their fight against the drop with a draw at fellow relegation-threatened Borussia Monchengladbach.
Karim Matmour opened the scoring after 12 minutes for the hosts before Robert Tesche equalised for Bielefeld in the 32nd minute.
Gladbach remain winless in their last five games and dropped to 17th in the table with 24 points, two points from safety.
The away draw lifted Bielefeld up to 25 points and 16th place and broke a four-game losing streak in which they scored just one goal.
The first chance of the game produced the first goal after 12 minutes. Alexander Baumjohann crossed from the left to Matmour whose first-time shot from 18 yards flew to the bottom right corner.
Neither side created much thereafter until Bielefeld equalised just after the half-hour mark.
Thorben Marx sent a through ball to Tesche, who scored between the legs of Gladbach keeper Logan Bailey from 10 yards.
Bielefeld had the first real chance in the second half but Rudiger Kauf's shot from 14 yards sailed over the crossbar in the 52nd minute.
Gladbach responded with a fine chance four minutes later but Filip Daems blasted into the left side netting from 16 yards.
Marko Marin then sent his curling free-kick from 18 yards just over the crossbar in the 69th minute.
Gladbach pushed forward looking for the winner but Bielefeld defended with everything they had, content with the away point against their fellow strugglers.
