Ken Ilsoe doubled Fortuna's lead

Two goals within seven minutes were enough for promoted side Fortuna Dusseldorf to continue their strong season with a win at Greuther Fuerth and remain the only Bundesliga club not to have allowed a goal.

Oliver Fink gave Dusseldorf the lead in the 26th minute and Ken Ilsoe doubled the advantage after 33 minutes for the win. The two goals doubled their scoring output from the first four matches.

The biggest headline from the promoted team's camp is that Norbert Meier's team have yet to concede a goal and have now picked up nine points on their return to the top flight. Fuerth have just four points from five matches.

Dusseldorf had not scored in their last three games but took the lead in the 26th minute. Johannes van den Bergh crossed into the box where Fink headed in from 13 yards out.

Dusseldorf doubled their lead in the 33rd minute with some fine passing as the ball landed at the feet of Ilsoe, who had space to slot home the second goal.

The guests had a chance for a third goal in the 47th minute but Robbie Kruse shot just over the bar.

Fuerth nearly scored at the other end but Ilir Azemi was unable to get to Edu's pass from the left side.

The hosts were close in the 59th minute but Edgar Prib's bicycle kick went just left of the goal.

And Dusseldorf goalkeeper Fabian Giefer made his best save of the match after 68 minutes as he cleared Azemi's header at the left post.
