Martinez and Koné back. There are still many absentees at Nîmes Olympique. In Rodez, the Crocs will have to do without Nazih, Briançon, Ferhat (ill in recent days and convalescing) and the two suspended full-backs Paquiez and Sainte-Luce. On the other hand, Pascal Plancque can count on the return of injuries from Pablo Martinez and Moussa Koné. Both are also in the group of 18 players selected, even if the first named is probably too fair to start a meeting after his long absence. The main question also relates to the defensive sector, where Pascal Plancque will have to innovate because of the suspensions of two of his three professional full-backs. Asked about the subject at a pre-match press conference, the technician suggested that he would favor a young specialist in the position: “When there are absences among the incumbents, it’s time to give them a chance. “Enzo Philibert and Pierre Zaidan are therefore in balance. Versatile, the first named has the advantage of having already had playing time this season in the first team, with even a start in the Coupe de France against Chusclan-Laudun (0- 3) The second is left-handed and therefore more likely to be at ease in the left lane neglected by Sainte-Luce Who will be on the pitch at kick-off?
