Bundesliga: Wolfsburg go fourth after comeback

BERLIN, Aug 24 (Reuters) - VfL Wolfsburg fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Bochum on Sunday and go joint fourth in the Bundesliga. The home side took the lead through Slovak striker Stanislav Sestak in the 12th minute before Christoph Dabrowski doubled their advantage with a 50th minute header past Wolfsburg's Portuguese defender Ricardo Costa. Costa made amends just moments later when he raced forward to meet a Marcel Schaefer cross. Bochum's Algerian defender Anthar Yahia attempted to clear, but the ball rebounded off Costa's leg and rolled into the net. Substitute Mahir Saglik then grabbed the equaliser in the 69th minute to deny Bochum, who took their first point of the season, a first home win since March. 'We had far too many good chances in the second half for me to be satisfied with a point,' said Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath. Promoted Hoffenheim are the unlikely Bundesliga leaders with two wins from their two matches. They beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 1-0 on Saturday. In Sunday's other match, Eintracht Frankfurt came from behind to snatch a late 1-1 draw away to Cologne with both teams also securing their first point of the campaign. Promoted Cologne could have been 2-0 up by half time after Milivoje Novakovic gave them the lead after 33 minutes but Roda Antar's penalty six minutes later struck the post. Christoph Daum's side failed to press in the second half and were punished in the 81st minute when 21-year-old Czech striker Martin Fenin headed home the equaliser.
