Saint-Etienne's coach insists that his side can finish fourth in Ligue 1 this season.

Saint-Etienne coach Christophe Galtier has targeted third place in Ligue 1 and Champions League qualification.

Galtier's side are currently two points behind Lyon with four games left, which means that third place is a possibility with a strong finish to the season.

"We want to go and get third place," he told Ligue1.com. "It is an ambitious objective but a realistic one given that we are currently fourth in the standings.

"There are four teams competing for third place - Lyon, Lille, Nice and ourselves. We need to keep playing the way we have been, with the same enthusiasm. We mustn't have any regrets.

"We have a difficult run-in but it is not insurmountable. These four matches will be decisive but we have already shown that we can perform on such occasions."

Saint-Etienne face Bordeaux on Friday night.
