Valenciennes v Nantes: Preview

Valenciennes urgently need to arrest their slump when Nantes visit on Sunday if they are to have any chance of avoiding relegation from Ligue 1.

The northern side are only a point above Ajaccio at the bottom of the table, and six points off fourth-from-bottom Guingamp, whom they face next week in a potentially decisive clash.

Worse still, Ariel Jacobs' side had taken a single point from their past four games and there seems little sign of a recovery.

Jean Christophe Bahebeck, the Paris St Germain forward on loan at Valenciennes, insists the side must take control of their own destiny.

He told the club's website: ``Collectively we must continue to remain strong, to have a good defensive unit, and in attack to take the game to them, rather than just waiting for our opponents to make a mistake.

``We must take control of our own destiny and do what it takes to win the three points against Nantes.''

Nantes did Valenciennes a favour by beating Guingamp last week, and there is hope for the home side because Michel Der Zakarian's team have had a generally wretched spell since mid-January.

The visitors should have Remy Riou back from a calf injury but Filip Djordjevic (knee) is still out while Papy Djilobodji (side), Vincent Bessat (calf) and Remi Gomis (thigh) will make their injury comeback with the reserves.
