Christophe Galtier says that his Saint-Etienne team did well to earn a point away to Rennes.

Saint-Etienne coach Christophe Galtier has said that his team showed character to fight back for a 2-2 draw against Rennes last night.

Les Verts twice fell behind at Route de Lorient but goals from Yohan Mollo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ensured that they shared the spoils.

Galtier said that he was happy with how his team played in the first half, but raised questions over their second-half display.

"We have taken a point and, while we had to struggle to do so against a very good Rennes team, we never doubted ourselves," Ligue1.com quotes Galtier as saying.

"In the first half, I was satisfied with the way we played. In the second half, we suffered a lot, but we showed character and managed to equalise at a good time.

"From a pessimistic viewpoint, I am disappointed that we conceded two goals. From an optimistic viewpoint, I am delighted that we scored twice. We still have a six-point advantage over Rennes, which is a good thing."

Saint-Etienne are fourth in the table, one point behind Marseille.
