Yellows – Reds 1-0. After several workshops, the Nîmes squad clashed this morning in the Costières field with two teams of eleven players, but only briefly. In this iconic encounter, the “yellow-and-black” beat the “reds” 1-0 thanks to Moussa Kone’s goal (he had not scored in Ligue 2 since September 2 and the crocodiles lost 3-2 in Valenciennes). It should be noted that the teams were on the side of the reds: Nazih – Guessoum, Durand de Gevigney, Djiga, Burner – Sbaï, Nasraoui, Zampa – N’Gakoutou, Benrahou, Wade. Among the yellows we found: Maraval (then Dias) – Vargas, Poulain, Kari, Sadzoute – Boudache, N’Guessan, Delpech – Benezet, Kone, Pagis.

But Toulouse has a federal contract and the OAC is still involved with the DNCG, which has reduced the room for maneuver. Adama Sarr’s path seems to have moved away from the 31-year-old striker. -was not in his old form. But the Oakiya leaders are still at least one or they believe in the coming of two elements.We definitely need a stunt double for Arnold (Abelinti)!“, insists a manager. That’s why the profile of a real arrow number 9 is a priority. It can be a free player or a player who has no playing time at his club in the National or Ligue 2.”We are working on several tracks. Some target players are controlled by other clubs. We have ten days left to make at least one shot“, sums up this close friend of the club in the know. Recent positive results and Hakim Malek’s arrival would boost OAC’s popularity rating in the transfer market.”Some players who turned down our offer this summer are coming back“, rejoices the Oakian leader. Patience! Things must change soon in the Cévennes.
