Find out what OL coach Hubert Fournier had to say after his side's thrilling 2-1 victory over Reims in Week 16 of Ligue 1:

Hubert Fournier

It was a very tough game, due mostly to our first half. Our opening goal didn't have the desired effect on our play. We had to pick everyone up. We worked very hard for these three pooints. We should have got the winning goal earlier. The win is a relief because we needed to bounce back. It was a real game of two halves. We allowed Reims to play the way they wanted to. We were better after the break. We played higher up the pitch... We will try and find a response to these sides that play with five at the back. We didn't want to leave them too much space. We had more opportunity to create scoring chances... It was a special match for me because Reims had a lot of players from last season. They are a very good, very organised and disciplined side that can be dangerous went you allow them possession. They have done very well in the last seven weeks.
