France-Saint Etienne moved to fourth place in Ligue 1 with a 1-0 win over Guingamp level on points with third place Lyon in the champions league positions.
Jean-Louis Gasset Saint-Etienne coach, winner at Guingamp 1-0: “We are very happy. It is true that there were matches in the first half of the season where we played better and we brought back a point or zero.
“Today, we had air holes, but we bring back three points. Many people criticized us for not being effective outside. Today, we scored a goal, we had two or three situations, but we did very well, so for a team not quite physically ready, we won the Cup match ( against Olympique Strasbourg Sunday, 6-0) and we win 1-0 a complicated match.
“The first period, technically, we were dominating, it’s especially the second period where for 30 minutes we lost the ball too easily.
“We found a little technical flexibility in the last quarter of an hour and we had two or three counter situations where we could score a second goal. ”
