A hard fought win that keeps Wuppertal in 3rd place in the Regionalliga West. The Schalke U23 side came out strong and had the early lead, but Knappmann once again got WSV going. His diving header gave Wuppertal the lead, and they were able to build things out a little after the restart. Despite Schalke converting a penalty, it was the home side that pressed harder and were closer to another score. Schalke’s GK looked in fine form as he prevented another WSV goal. Overall, a decent performance.
