BUNDESLIGA 2 SIDE Union Berlin had goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz to thank after he rescued a point in dramatic fashion yesterday. 

Trailing Heidenheim 1-0 in the 94th minute, a free-kick was launched into the box and, after it was helped back across by Sebastian Andersson, the Polish stopper rose highest to head home from a couple of yards out. 

It means second-placed Union are now unbeaten for a club-record 11 matches.
