Four days before a crucial match for their future in National, Friday April 19 on the lawn of Orléans, the Nîmes display the right state of mind and the desire to do well, training at the Bastide. Everything remains to be validated in the Loiret.

If we can blame many things in matches against Nîmes this season, on the other hand, we cannot take anything away from Formose Mendy and his team in terms of the state of mind and investment displayed during the week , at the Bastide. Tuesday morning, the big hour and a half of training, rhythmic and committed, began with small games in a small space, under the orders of the physical trainer Aurélien Boche, before continuing with an opposition on a large field, with eleven against eleven.

If there was no goal, in 45 minutes, between “red jerseys’’ and “white chasubles’’, the line of work sought by the staff was more in pressing on the first opponent's restart. ''We take, we take…'', noted Hermach, leaving the field, to the remark on the profusion of energy deployed.

In the center, captain Mendy, suspension served, is still testing his knee (internal ligament): ''Today, it's fine'& ;#39;, he said, at the end.

Doukansy absent against Versailles and again just for Orléans

In attack, Mbemba, on the left, and Camara flanked Mbina for a long time, before Doucouré. The finish, always the finish but always without Sané (adductors), undoubtedly the most “scorer’’ of all (2 goals in six matches). ''With Abdou, it may take time'', fears sports director Sébastien Larcier.
