Defender John Boye says Stade Rennes will push for an Europa League finish despite their precarious situation on the French Lique 1 table.
The Red and Blacks are 15th on the table after 19 matches and are firmly out of the race for the championship title.
They lost 2-1 at Sochaux in their last encounter in December last year.
However manager Philippe Montanierâ€™s men will be back in the midst on Saturday when they host Nice and the Ghanaian international has charged his teammates to fight till the end.
â€œItâ€™s a pretty difficult situation but we must fight till the end,â€ Boye said
â€œWe cannot give up at all. There are still a number of matches to play and I believe if we put our minds to it, we can at least finish 5th on the table.
â€œWe want to play in Europe next season and the only way out is to finish up there.â€
