TRAFTON KENNEY - Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Saint Etienne Coach Christophe Galtier will hope his team can translate their scintillating league play to the Coupe de la Ligue when Les Verts host Nice at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Wednesday.

American veteran defender Carlos Bocanegra has become a fixture at left back for his new club, starting and playing every minute in the past four games including last Saturday's 3-0 win over Montpellier.

With most eyes on next Saturday's game against Lyon, Saint Etienne will have to stay focused on a difficult Nice team.

The Côte d'Azur club may have sold off star winger Löic Rémy to Marseille in the offseason, but they have climbed to a respectable seventh place in Ligue 1 after a string of ties and a notable win over Bordeaux.

Galtier has most of the squad at his disposal after last week's return of Loic Perrin and Gonzalo Bergessio but Boubacar Sanogo is still unavailable.
