Stuttgart attacking midfielder Daniel Didavi has insisted that the point earned in the 0-0 draw away to Hannover on Friday night could be an important one in their battle against relegation from the Bundesliga.
Stuttgart are now five points above the second automatic relegation place and the relegation playoff spot with just three games to play.
"The most important thing for us was keeping a clean sheet," Didavi told Bundesliga.com. "We're happy with the point and it's important we didn't lose.
"Of course we could have done with the win, but every point counts when you're in a relegation battle.
"We've got two matches left, including a home game next week, but let's first see what the other teams at the bottom can do [this weekend]."
Stuttgart are unbeaten in their last four league games.
