Hannover 96 maintained their 27 year unbeaten home record against Frankfurt with a 1-0 win at the HDI Arena.

The home side needed a late own-goal from Alexander Madlung to secure the win which lifted them into the top six on 16 points.

Despite relying on an own-goal for the victory Hannover dominated possession throughout the game and were rewarded for their efforts.

Coach Tayfun Korkut said, “Sure, we want to score more goals. Frankfurt were a tough opposition but we got the three points and that is what is important.”

Turkish international Ceyhun Gülselam missed the game due to suspension however, Korkut did give 20-year-old Turkish forward Kenan Karaman playing time in the last 10 minutes.

Korkut became the first Turkish international to take over a Bundesliga club when he was appointed Hannover manager last season.

It is the first senior coaching job for the former Fenerbahçe midfielder who previously worked as a youth team coach at Real Sociedad, Hoffenheim and VfB Stuttgart.
