PARIS, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Paris St Germain's Guillaume Hoarau scored a last-gasp equaliser in a thrilling 4-4 draw at Olympique Lyon on Saturday although they still surrendered top spot in Ligue 1 to Montpellier.

PSG, unbeaten in all competitions since Carlo Ancelotti took over as manager from Antoine Kombouare two months ago, recovered from two goals down as Montpellier, who beat Girondins Bordeaux 1-0, moved a point clear with 53 points from 25 games.

"We have mixed feelings because we cannot concede goals like that," striker Hoarau told French TV channel Orange Foot.

PSG went ahead after 21 minutes when Hoarau slotted the ball past France keeper Hugo Lloris from a Jeremy Menez free kick.

But Lyon, who are fifth on 40 points, stormed back.

Bafetimbi Gomis volleyed home from close range in the 34th minute and Lisandro Lopez doubled their tally when he latched onto a Michel Bastos cross two minutes later.   Continued...
