Schalke missed the chance to close the gap on Bayern Munich after being held to a 1-1 draw by Bayer Leverkusen.
Last season's Bundesliga runners-up remain unbeaten four games into the new campaign, but have won just once.
German international striker Kevin Kuranyi struck deep into first-half stoppage time to give the Royal Blues an interval lead.
However, Schalke failed to protect their advantage with Greek striker Theofanis Gekas levelling matters shortly after the re-start.
The draw keeps Schalke a point clear of Leverkusen, although Mirko Slomka's side remain three behind league leaders Bayern.
