Austria round-up: Leading pair pegged back

FK Austria Wien were held to a 1-1 draw at SV Ried - but are now two points clear of SV Pasching.

Austrian Bundesliga leaders FK Austria Wien missed the chance to put some distance between themselves and second-placed SV Pasching after being held to a 1-1 draw at SV Ried.

Hosts' comeback
Things looked to be going to plan for the table-toppers when Thorstein Helstad put them into a 14th-minute lead. But the hosts dug in after the goal and were rewarded for their efforts when Muhammet Akagündüz levelled on the half hour.

Kärnten deny Pasching
However, Pasching were unable to take advantage as they were beaten 2-0 at FC Kärnten. Both the goals came in the first eleven minutes, and Marijo Maric opened the scoring and Markus Oberleitner doubled Kärnten's lead to put them up to fourth place.

Salzburg win
SV Austria Salzburg put the pressure on fellow strugglers VfB Admira Wacker Mödling after a Roland Kirchler double gave them a 2-0 win against their rivals. Kirchler's first came on 34 minutes and the second just before half-time, as Salzburg moved to within two points of third-bottom Admira.

Graz relief
Elsewhere, Grazer AK beat Schwarz-Weiss Bregenz 2-0 to remain above Salzburg, while SK Sturm Graz ended a run of five defeats in all competitions with a 2-1 victory against SK Rapid Wien.
