Ambri have now replaced Zug at the top with just one point separating them. Ambri's winning goal came from Tognini after the match went to extra time.

Zug's run of undefeated matches came to an abrupt end on Saturday when they lost to Kloten 1-3 at home. Davos are now the only side in the First Division not to be beaten.

They put on a solid show by drawing 3-3 against Langnau and have thereby managed to hold on to their spot in the top three.

La Chaux-de-Fonds managed to come away with a 1-1 draw against Fribourg, while reigning champions, ZSC Lions, defeated Rapperswil 2-0 away.

Saturday's real surprise came from the First Division's upstarts, Chur, who hammered Berne 4-1. It's their second impressive performance in a row, after having drawn against Lions last week.
