Sheffield Wednesday loanee gives away penalty 2.Bundesliga’s return

GERMAN FOOTBALL RETURNED OVER THE COURSE OF THE WEEKEND AND THERE WERE SOME CHAMPIONSHIP REPRESENTATIVES PLAYING IN THE BUNDESLIGA AND 2. BUNDESLIGA.

QPR’s loaned out defender Toni Leistner played the full 90 minutes in FC Koln’s 2-2 draw with Mainz, while Sheffield Wednesday left-back Matt Penney featured for FC St Pauli – who are now managed by ex-Owls boss Jos Luhukay – in a 1-0 win over FC Nuremberg.

Penney was not Sheffield Wednesday’s only representative in German football’s return to action, with loaned out defender Joost Van Aken playing for 2.Bundesliga side VFL Osnabruck against Armenia Bielefeld.

Van Aken started for Osnabruck and was involved in the action early on, but not for the right reason. The Sheffield Wednesday loanee fouled Bielefeld striker Fabian Klos after 16 minutes and Klos picked himself up to convert the penalty, sending the ‘keeper the wrong way to put his side ahead.

Bielefeld looked set to condemn Van Aken and Osnabruck to defeat on their return to action but a 93rd-minute equaliser from Marcos Alvarez rescued a late point for Osnabruck.

Osnabruck’s point helped them maintain a gap from the bottom two, leaving them in 13th place, three points clear of the bottom two. Bielefeld – who sit top of the table – remained at the top of the pile, seven points clear of 2nd placed Hamburg.

The late winner spared the blushes of van Aken, who has now played in 21 games across all competitions during his loan spell with the club. While his return to action may not have gone completely as he would have wished, van Aken’s side come away with an important point against a tough side.
