Jallet hails battling PSG spirit

Paris St Germain defender Christophe Jallet believes the stunning 4-4 draw at Lyon could be the key to Ligue 1 title glory this season.

Trailing 3-1 and 4-2 at Stade Gerland, Guillaume Hoarau scored an equaliser three minutes into injury time to snatch a much-needed point for Carlo Ancelotti's side. Although deposed at the top of the table by Montpellier, Jallet is convinced the result proved PSG have what it takes to clinch their first championship since 1994.

''Something happened at Lyon. To equalise in the last minute in a match of high importance was crucial,'' said Jallet. ''We won with extra mental strength, and I hope the collective joy we felt after the game will help us in the coming matches because the sprint for the line will soon be launched.''

Jallet appreciates, however, if PSG are to end their 18-year wait for the title they have to improve defensively after conceding six goals in their last two games, starting on Sunday at home to Ajaccio.

''It is an area on which we must collectively work. It is a matter of concentration and vigilance,'' added Jallet.

In the battle for supremacy, Montpellier forward Karim Ait Fana sees no reason why the underdogs cannot keep their noses in front following a run of seven wins and a draw - at PSG - in their last eight matches.

Ahead of Saturday's trip to Dijon, the 23-year-old said: ''At the moment, with 13 games to go, we are well placed. We have ambitions, and that is top of the table. The goal is to stay there until the end of the season.''

Reigning champions Lille continue to hang in there, seven points behind Montpellier, and will be expected to comfortably overcome second-bottom Auxerre, who have yet to win away this season.

Fourth-placed St Etienne are aiming for a fourth successive home win when they host Evian, who have also failed to claim three points on the road this campaign.

Lyon, whose title hopes are fading fast as they are 13 points adrift, head to struggling Nancy who have dropped into the bottom three on the back of three consecutive defeats.

Rennes and Toulouse, like Lyon also 13 points off the pace, face trips to Lorient on Sunday and Marseille on Saturday respectively.

Other matches on Saturday see Bordeaux host Nice and rock-bottom Sochaux, without a win in their last 12 league games, at home to Valenciennes, while on Sunday Brest visit Caen.
