Team News

  • Troyes are set to be without a host of first-team players for this vital clash.
  • Sebastien Grax is expected to be out for a month with a knee problem, while Jeremie Brechet is out with a groin injury.
  • Julien Faussurier has a knee complaint, and Stephen Drouin is unavailable with a groin problem.
  • Stephane Darbion also misses out with hamstring injury, and Matthieu Saunier will also be on the sidelines due to ankle problem.
  • Bottom club Nancy also have a number of injury concerns.
  • Fouad Rachid and Abdou Dampha are still out after missing the last few games through injury.
  • Benjamin Moukandjo is a doubt due to a knee injury, while Massadio Haidara has a hamstring problem. However, there is some good news for the men from Lorraine as Salif Sane returns after missing the defeat to Rennes through suspension.

Prediction

  • Troyes and Nancy face-off in an early relegation six-pointer at the Stade de L'Aube this weekend.
  • Both teams have struggled to find any sort of form so far this term, and go into the game desperate for three points after being cut adrift at the bottom of Ligue 1.
  • Nancy are rock bottom of the division following their 3-1 defeat against Rennes, however the fact that they were able to find the net last weekend provided some solace, and under pressure boss Jean Fernandez will hope that goalscorer Simon Zenke can find his shooting boots again and fire them to a precious three points.
  • However, they come up against a Troyes team which, despite their lowly standing, has taken points off Montpellier and Marseille this season.
  • Jean-Marc Furlan's men are no pushovers and will be confident of victory, however in terms of raw talent it is the visitors who perhaps hold the edge. The men from Lorraine will take a win of any kind, and they may just be able to squeak out a victory which they hope will kick start an upturn in their fortunes.
