Result: Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro rescues Toulouse point against Saint-Etienne

Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro's 88th-minute equaliser salvages Toulouse a 1-1 draw with Saint Etienne, who are now winless in seven Ligue 1 games and 11 points off top.

An 88th-minute equaliser from Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro rescued Toulouse a 1-1 draw with Saint-Etienne tonight.

While Les Verts climb to fourth in the Ligue 1 table, they are now winless in seven matches and have dropped 11 points off the title pace.

An uneventful first half in which Romain Hamouma and Tongo Doumbia squandered their side's best chances came to life when Uros Spajic conceded a 44th-minute penalty.

Former Leeds United striker Max Gradel stepped up to bury the spot kick and give Saint-Etienne a half-time lead.

The hosts pushed forward after the break in a bid to level terms as Oscar Trejo fired narrowly wide and Dragos Grigore saw a long-range shot saved by Stephane Ruffier.

They got their just rewards two minutes from time when defender Akpa Akpro rifled into the bottom corner from 25 yards following an Aleksandar Pesic knockdown, although Toulouse drop into the bottom three due to results elsewhere.
