Union Berlin 1-1 Schalke: Jonjoe Kenny scores for visitors – BBC Sport

Jonjoe Kenny has scored two goals in the Bundesliga since joining Schalke on loan from Everton

On-loan Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny scored for Schalke as they drew 1-1 with Union Berlin after Wolfsburg dealt a crushing blow to Werder Bremen’s battle for Bundesliga survival.

Kenny, netting his second Bundesliga goal of the season, fired a 25-yard strike into the bottom corner.

Union Berlin had taken the lead through Robert Andrich in the 11th minute.

Earlier on Sunday, Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst’s 82nd-minute header gave them a 1-0 victory in Bremen.

Weghorst, left unmarked in the box, headed in Felix Klaus’s curling cross for his first goal in five games.

The result left second-bottom Werder Bremen six points adrift of Mainz in 15th place with four games to go, while Wolfsburg moved up to sixth in the table, two points above Hoffenheim.

Union Berlin sit seven points above the bottom two in 14th position, four places below Schalke, who have struggled for form, picking up just one win in their past 13 games.

Kenny told BT Sport: “We have to look at the positives in the situation that we are in – we took a point away from home so need to move on. It’s football. We have to stick together.

“It is a tough situation that we are in. We want to be getting wins and getting more points on the board to finish the season off strongly.”

In Sunday’s late kick-off, Cologne substitute Anthony Modeste thought he had scored an 85th-minute winner at Augsburg, only for defender Philipp Max to equalise with two minutes remaining.

Cologne keeper Timo Horn had earlier tipped Augsburg striker Florian Niederlechner’s penalty onto the crossbar in the first half.

The 1-1 result leaves Cologne in 12th place in the table, while Augsburg sit seven points above the bottom two relegation spots.
