In Montauban without Djiga… This is the bad news this farewell Saturday at the Costières stadium. Upon receiving a yellow card from Mr. Petit at age 74e minutes of the match against Girondins de Bordeaux, the defender is sure to be suspended soon. The Burkinabé international was sent off in the Crocodiles’ 1-0 defeat in Pau (13e day). During the disciplinary committee, the central defender received a closed match along with a suspended match. The latter fell against Bordeaux but Djiga can make the trip to Niort on Saturday. On the other hand, he will miss the 8e round of the Coupe de France in Montauban on Saturday November 19 at 3 pm at the Sapiac stadium.

… by Koné! After Niort, this Saturday, Nîmes Olympique will play the last match before the long international break linked to the World Cup in Qatar (November 20 – December 18) with 8e round of the Coupe de France. Crocos will play Montauban probably on Saturday November 19. For this meeting, one player has been forfeited. This is Moussa Koné. In fact, the Senegalese striker, who regularly suffers from small injuries in the adductors, will undergo the so-called PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injection on November 14. A treatment that requires a week of rest. So, the player will benefit in total from almost three weeks of rest as the group will be on vacation after the Coupe de France. “ The idea is that he will return to recovery without any pain “, explained Nicolas Usaï. The resumption of training is scheduled for 1eh December at 3 pm

National 3

A good deal for Beaucaire, a bad one for Aigues-Mortes. Day seven of the National 3 was full of goals. Les Gardois scored five goals and conceded nine. Under these conditions, the record is one win and two losses. Credit to Stade Beaucairoi who won 4-2 at the Rodez reserve ground. This victory was achieved in the last minutes thanks to goals from Bizzou (18e), Green (25e and 90th), El Hamri (87e). For its part, FC Bagnols Pont lost heavily to Albères-Argeles 4-1. El Kati saved the honor of Gardois by scoring 80e. Finally, the bad surprise came from Aigues-Mortes who conceded their first defeat of the season. Agde, however poorly ranked, won at the Bourgidou stadium 3-0 by scoring two goals in the first seven minutes. In the standings, Beaucaire took second place as the only real rival to leader Béziers.

Kyle Bowman finally arrived. We announced in Minute Sport on September 27, the signing of South African Kyle Bowman to make up for the absence of Damien Pichard, unavailable until January 2023. The 25-year-old scrum-half has arrived at Gard, from Ikey Tigers the club of the University of Cape Town, this Sunday after fighting against the formidable French administrative machine. Therefore, it was necessary to wait six weeks for the new Nîmes to receive all his permissions. This Monday night he will participate in his first training session with RCN and it is unlikely that he will be ready for the reception of Bedarrides on Saturday at 7:30 pm at the Nicolas-Kaufmann stadium. The South African will not make his debut until the trip to Vienna on November 19.
