Andre-Pierre Gignac: On the scoresheet again

Andre-Pierre Gignac: On the scoresheet again

Andre-Pierre Gignac scored for the third match in a row as Marseille claimed a 1-0 win at Valenciennes.

Gignac is pushing for a recall to the France squad, having not played an international match since 2010, after a fine start to the season which continued on Saturday.

The match looked to be petering out to a goalless draw before Gignac scored seven minutes from time at Stade du Hainaut.

Reims made a big splash at a waterlogged Gerland by stunning Lyon 1-0 in a match that was close to being abandoned at half-time.

Odair Fortes scored the only goal, in the 75th minute, four minutes after Lyon's Clement Grenier failed with a penalty kick.

Heavy rain had cast doubt on whether the match would be completed, with the second half having to be delayed due to the pitch becoming unplayable, the ball no longer bouncing and holding up on the pitch due to the surface water.

After the players spent 45 minutes in the dressing rooms, with groundstaff frantically doing their best to render the surface suitable for football, they were able to resume.

Fortes scored with the apparent aid of a deflection off Milan Bisevac to give Reims their second win in three outings, the same record as Lyon now own.

One goal was again all it took to decide the tussle between Bordeaux and Bastia at the Stade Chaban Delmas.

Henri Saivet's first-half effort gave Bordeaux their first win of the Ligue 1 season.

Saivet rifled into the top corner from a free-kick on the half-hour mark.

Evian slipped to the bottom of the table as two goals from Nelson Oliveira condemned them to a 2-1 loss against Rennes.

The Portuguese netted from the penalty spot after 11 minutes and doubled the visitors' lead in the 34th minute.

Kevin Berigaud got a goal back for Evian four minutes into the second half but they could not find the equaliser that would have kept them off the foot of the table.

Mustapha Yatabare scored twice as Guingamp beat Lorient 2-0, earning their first points following promotion.

Yatabare beat Lorient goalkeeper Baptiste Reynet in each half at the Stade Municipal De Roudourou as the visitors failed to build on their win over Nantes last week.

A goal four minutes into second-half injury time by Siaka Tiene secured a 2-1 victory for Montpellier against Sochaux.

Roy Contout had put Sochaux ahead shortly prior to half-time but Hilton responded immediately to ensure the teams went into the break on level terms.

Cedric Kante was sent off for the visitors with 17 minutes remaining, but it appeared Sochaux had done enough to earn a point before Tiene's late intervention.

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
