Pascal Dupraz (trainer of Saint-Etienne, after the 2-2 draw against Strasbourg ) : “On a first period not mastered on our part because too approximate against a superior opponent, to arrive at half-time at 2-2, it is almost happy. After the break, we were a little better on our outings. Strasbourg, which justified its rank, let the wind hover until the end.
Recurringly, the players are in the project which is ours, to leave ASSE in Ligue 1. Their performances have brought people back to the stadium. Nothing is acquired. The progress is that against Nantes and Lens, we were disappointed because we had lost with the feeling that we could score. This time, without delivering our best game, we took a point and on the last changes, I tried to put attacking players even in positions that were not theirs. With these results, the team stores confidence but not enough. Against Metz (March 6), it will be worth its weight in peanuts and with this audience, you feel stronger. We have just taken ten points and we would sign well to take as many over the next four matches« .
