Barton talks up Marseille response

Dec 03, 2012 5:22 PM GMT

The victory proved the perfect response after Eli Baup's team had lost 4-1 at home to Lyon, who are two points ahead of second-placed Marseille on the Ligue 1 table.

"This is a great victory. It was a tough match. The playing conditions were very 'English', which was fine," Barton told RMC.

"It's good to have won after our defeat against Lyon (4-1).

"We answered this and it is never easy to come play at Brest. I think many teams will experience difficult times here."

Barton, on a season-long loan from QPR, has hinted he is open to extending his stay at the Stade Velodrome beyond the end of this season.
