Augsburg boost survival hopes.

Ji Dong-Won scored as Augsburg boosted their survival hopes with a 3-0 victory over Stuttgart in the German Bundesliga.

The South Korean international scored the third goal after Sascha Molders and Marcel de Jong had earlier given Augsburg the lead.

The result sees Ji’s side move level on points with Fortuna Dusseldorf with three games remaining.

Elsewhere, Ahmed Elmohamady’s Hull City suffered a promotion blow as they lost 2-0 at Barnsley.

Jacob Mellis and Chris O’Grady scored to boost the Tykes' survival bid whilst the Tigers need to win at home to title-winners Cardiff on the last day to guarantee promotion.

Otherwise, Steve Bruce’s side will be promoted if Watford fail to beat Leeds United at Vicarage Road.

Meanwhile, Adam Reed played the final five minutes of York City’s 1-0 victory over Dagenham and Redbridge as the Minstermen ensured their League Two status.

Reed had been ever-present since joining up with Nigel Worthington’s side in March, and he would have started his final game for the club but for a slight hip injury.
