FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Valentin Stocker scored seven minutes from time to earn Hertha Berlin a 1-1 draw at Hannover in the Bundesliga on Friday.
Stocker's goal canceled out Christian Schulz's 75th-minute strike for Hannover, which remained winless in 12 matches. The draw did little to reduce Hannover's relegation worries, while improving Berlin's position.
Berlin is unbeaten in six matches under new coach Pal Dardai.
Schulz scored after a corner from Hiroshi Kiyotake. Salif Sane's effort was blocked but Schulz prodded the rebound home.
Stocker equalized with a spectacular left-foot volley from the edge of the penalty area after a free kick was headed his way by Hannover's defender Marcelo.
Hannover's Lars Stindl hit the post early in the second half in a match that saw few clear chances.
