Hitzlsperger delighted with win

Elson and Mario Gomez scored the goals for Stuttgart in the win.

“We are delighted about the win because Dortmund demanded everything we had to offer. We made life difficult for ourselves today with too many loose passes,” Hitzlsperger said.

“In the end we were rewarded for the effort we put in. We need to keep on winning now if we want to close the gap.”
