Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Borussia Dortmund earned their first Bundesliga win in five games with victory at Eintracht Braunschweig.

Aubameyang opened the scoring in the first half when he headed home Robert Lewandowski's cross from a yard out.

Benjamin Kessel tapped in for the basement side nine minutes after the break, before Aubameyang fired home the winner in the 65th minute.

Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan also struck the post with a shot.

Last year's Champions League runners-up now have 36 points, one behind Bayer Leverkusen and 14 shy of runaway leaders Bayern Munich, who play Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.
