Christophe Galtier has expressed his delight at St Etienne's 3-0 win over Dnipro in the Europa League on Thursday night and hopes they can maintain their current form.

Currently second in group G behind Serie A club Lzio, the win sees Les Verts et Blanc move a step closer to qualification to the knockout phase with two games remaining in the group stages.

"It's an important win for the player, for the fans and for the club," he told the Ligue 1 official website.

"It puts us in a very favourable position even though qualification has not yet been secured. We'll just have to make sure we can close the deal, hopefully in our next match. 

"We were hoping to get some wins this season because last season we had none to speak of in this competition. 

"Now we've strung together two against a side who were finalists last time around. Tonight was European night at the Geoffroy-Guichard just the way we like them. It was great for everyone."
