Lille midfielder Mathieu Bodmer has voiced concern at his club's recent form following defeats in domestic and European competition.
Lille are in something of a rut following last week's UEFA Champions League defeat at home to Manchester United and also a surprise Ligue 1 defeat to strugglers Nice.
Bodmer admits he is concerned by the number of late goals conceded by the team and has urged them to improve their form if they are to harbour hopes of qualifying for Europe next season.
"It is not normal to show such complacency," said Bodmer.
"We have conceded a late goal again [against Nice]. In the last four or five matches it has been the same story.
"It has made us anxious because we are not in the Champions League positions. We need points.
"There are 12 matches remaining and 36 points to take so it is up to us to take the maximum possible."
