St.Etienne blew a two-goal lead against Lens and then needed a late equaliser to earn a last minute 3-3 draw in Ligue 1 on Friday night.

Landry N’Guemo and Yohann Mollo scored either side of half-time to put St Etienne two up, but a brace from Yoann Touzghar got the away side back on level terms.

Second half substitute Pablo Chavarria then gave Lens the lead on 77 minutes.

Turkish international striker Mevlüt Erdinç helped rescue a point on 83 minutes to help the home side avoid their third straight defeat.

The 27-year-old was removed from the Turkish National team squad following an injury he picked up during Turkey’s 4-0 defeat to Brazil and has only recently returned to first team football.

Erdinç has scored five goals and made one assist in 21 appearances for Saint-Etienne this season in all competitions.

The powerful striker joined St. Etienne on a £4 million move from Rennes in the summer of 2013.
