After a difficult start, the team seems to have stepped up a gear in recent weeks...
There were a lot of comings and goings over the summer. We had a bit of troubling finding each other on the pitch. It wasn't an easy start to the new league season, particularly for the coach who has had to make a lot of changes. He's had us working very hard on our reflexes and tactics in training. It's satisfying to see that it's starting to pay off. Hopefully it will continue...
What sort of game are you expecting on Sunday against current second-placed side Angers?
They've onlyjust been promoted to Ligue 1. For them to be second in the table is impressive. They have plenty of potential. It won't be a simple game on Sunday.We need to have a lot of respect for them, but we'll be doing our best to get that first home win in Ligue 1 this season. We're waiting for them!
Do you have a message for the fans ahead of the game?
We need their support during every minute of our matches. We sometimes hear whistling when we're on the pitch… It's important to show them that are giving 100% and that their encouragement is really important for us.
