Moulin: A point was the least we deserved

Angers coach Stephane Moulin admits his side were fortunate to have come away from their Ligue 1 clash with Marseille with a point.

Pierrick Capelle netted in the third minute of injury time at the end of their match at the Stade Jean Bouin on Sunday where Florian Thauvin had given Les Phocéens a 64th minute lead.

After the match, a relieved Moulin explained: "If we analyse the match, we're very fortunate to have equalised, because at the moment very few people believed in us at the time except us."

Moulin felt Les Scoistes had done enough to win the game but was nevertheless proud of his charges for at least securing a draw.

"Now, we can consider that a draw was the minimum because we had a huge amount of chances", he continued. "We took too long to make the breakthrough, but we might never have done so. So, I'm very proud of the players."

Marseille coach Franck Passi was naturally disappointed to have thrown away three points when they should have sewn up the result.

He added: "I'm really disappointed. In the 93rd-minute, we had 11 points and were three off fourth. Now, we just have nine. The explanation is that we lack maturity. 

"We had the ball in their penalty area, and we should have been able to keep it. You can't forget Angers' goalscoring chances, but the majority of the opportunities, whether in the first or second half, were from stupid losses of possession on our part."
