LOAN WATCH: Chelsea defender Hector nets last-gasp Eintracht Frankfurt equaliser

Michael Hector made a positive impression for Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Bundesliga on Saturday.

The Chelsea defender, who is on a season-long loan, popped up with an injury-time equaliser as Eintracht forced a 3-3 draw with Hertha Berlin at the Commerzbank-Arena.

Vedad Ibisevic scored first from the penalty spot for Hertha in the 19th minute before Marco Fabian and captain Alex Meier had the home side ahead by half-time.

Hertha then found their way into the lead through Ibisevic's second and Alexander Esswein before Hector, who replaced David Abraham on 31 minutes, headed home in injury-time.

The goal was the former Reading star's first in Germany since making the move from Chelsea in the summer and helped Eintracht edge into fifth place on the German top flight.
