Manually refresh page for the latest updates!

FT: AJACCIO 1-1 VALENCIENNES: The home side will be bitterly disappointed after Valenciennes were down to ten for twenty minutes and Mutu missed a penalty. Valenciennes really struggling with the loses of Kadir and Gil. They are not the same team that they were before the Christmas break.

FT: TOULOUSE 2-1 NANCY: Two goals by Tabanou due to poor defending and goalkeeping. Toulouse sit in mid table, just 4 points off Lorient in fourth. Nancy got one back, but they are starting to fall away from safety.

FT: BREST 0-1 ST ETIENNE: Boos ring around as St Etienne pick up three vital points thanks to a lovely finish by Brandao. Could have scored more.

FT: LORIENT 3-2 TROYES: Cracking game ends in a narrow victory. Troyes dangerous coming forward, but some poor errors at the back cost them the match. Lorient move up to 4th

20:47: Nancy and Troyes piling forward here looking for equalisers. Into stoppage time

20:46: GOAL NANCY: Nancy reduce the lead after Karaboue fires a cracking strike into the corner.

20:45: Ben Basat has a cracking shot for Brest which hits the post. so close!

20:41 GOAL TROYES: Camus is able to control the ball in the box and fire home to make it 3-2 against Lorient. Cracking game!

NEWS: Fenerbahce terms agreed with Belhanda. Montpellier’s president just has to agree it.

20:38: GOAL LORIENT 3-1: Ball is delivered in from a free kick. It is a free header for Bourillion, who climbs highest in the box to head home.

20:35: GOAL TOULOUSE: After a one-two with Didot, Tabanou shoots for the near post from out wide and the ball creeps in. Keeper should have done much better. Now lead 2-0 against struggling Nancy.

20:32 Aubameyang has just scooped a header over the bar. Tonight should be a good chance to end his scoring drought. St Etienne looking dangerous

20:29: Tiberi is coming on for Ajaccio, as they search for this winner against ten men Valenciennes.

20:27: Brison given a yellow for St Etienne for what looked like a last man challenge. Very lucky to still be on the pitch.

20:26: GOAL VALENCIENNES: And they will pay for it. Nguette rounds the keeper and coolly slots home. 1-1

20:22 Mutu misses the penalty for Ajaccio at the second time of asking. Had to retake after scoring the first penalty. still 1-0

20:20 GOAL TROYES: Brechet wins a free header to put Troyes back in the match. 2-1 now

20:19 Brou Angoua has been shown a straight red card for a tackle. Valenciennes down to 10. PENALTY

20:19 St Etienne are applying the pressure onto Brest. The second goal looks like it coming in only a matter of time.

20:15 What a chance! Ball comes in to an unmarked Nguette for Valenciennes, But he heads it straight at Ochoa. Ajaccio still lead.

20:14 GOAL TOULOUSE: A lovely ball is delivered from the right hand side and Tabanou runs on to it to head home. Toulouse lead Nancy 1-0.

20:10 A fast break down the left by Troyes means that Lorient keeper Audard is forced into a good save to keep his side’s lead to two goals.

20:06 A lovely chip by Toulouse left back M’Bengue hits the bar. So close to giving the home side the lead against Nancy.

20:06 GOAL ST ETIENNE: St Etienne’s Brandao lobs the keeper to make it 1-0 against Brest. Cool finish

20:01 Troyes on the attack immediately against Lorient and win a corner in seconds. Comes to nothing

20:00 We are about to get underway around the grounds.

19:50 HALF TIME: Brest 0-0 Saint-Etienne. Aubameyang has missed chance after chance and Brest are luck about that. However, Raspentino looks good down the left. Hope.

19:49 HALF TIME: Toulouse 0-0 Nancy. Creativity problems for TFC mean that Nancy are still in this one. If anyone will make the difference, it looks like being Aurier down that right hand side.

19:47 HALF TIME: Ajaccio 1-0 Valenciennes. The Corsicans lead through a simple Adrian Mutu tap in and I fail to see where VAFC will get something here.

19:46 HALF TIME: Lorient 2-0 Troyes. Lovely attacking football from the home side has seen them dominate a rather lacklustre ESTAC side. Goals from Reale and Monnet-Paquet have probably already won this game for FCL.

19:44 Sirieix sees his shot go just wide of the mark for Toulouse. Difficult for Toulouse to create the chances against Nancy at the moment.

19:41 Yellow card is given to Saint-Etienne’s Cohade for a thumping challenge in the middle of the park.

19:38 Nancy have a goal correctly disallowed for offside from a free kick.

19:35 Etienne Capoue should have done better as his limp header from the freekick goes out for a corner.

19:33 Brest captain Bernard Mendy is down hurt after suffering a blow to the throat. Should be alright to continue though against ASSE.

19:32 Just after putting the Corsicans in front, Mutu goes close with a curling effort from outside the box going wide of the far post.

19:31 Toulouse have a great chance to take the lead over Nancy. Tabanou should really have done better with a header from 3 yards out.

19:30 GOAL AJACCIO 1-0! Adrian Mutu has a tap in after receiving the ball after the Valenciennes keeper was unable to keep it out.

19:27 GOAL LORIENT 2-0! Enzo Reale who fires home an Aliadiere cross with ease! Troyes look down and out already!

19:25 3 great chances for Aubameyang to take the lead against Brest. Messed up every single one of them.

19:23 Ajaccio Substitution: An injury to Maire sees Saad replace him.

19:20 GOAL LORIENT: Monnet-Paquet taps in an Aliadiere low cross to make it 1-0 against Troyes! Some controversy as to whether the ball crossed the line.

19:15 Aubameyang has missed 2 great chances to put his side ahead of Brest. One open goal where a Brest defender scrambled the ball away, and another 1 0n 1 with the keeper, but he hesitates.

19:12 Jeremie Aliadiere has a low freekick exceptionally saved by the Troyes keeper. 1st chance in that game.

19:09 Ajaccio really taking the game to Valenciennes, who seem a bit asleep.

19:08 Toulouse are in complete control at Nancy, Aurier looking dangerous on the overlap down the right.

19:05 Great chance for Ajaccio to take the lead against VAFC. Sammaritano lashes one just wide.

19:05 Saint-Etienne have really started well against Brest here. The latter are unable to get out of their own half.

19:03 Valenciennes have a chance with Dossevi against Ajaccio, but the Corsicans’ defence holds firm.

19:01 Saint-Etienne have started well against Brest, but Aubameyang’s corner is poor.

19:00 We are underway!

18:55 Just 5 minutes away from kick offs!

18:52 Nancy Official on Twitter: ‘Bon match au Toulouse FC’. Nice gesture.

18:51 Bein Sport are generally a reliable source, but we have no confirmation that the Haidara news is true.

18:50 BREAKING: According to Bein Sport, Massadio Haidara will play in his last Nancy game this evening. He will then sign for Newcastle.

18:37 Five of St Etienne’s last seven away games in the top-flight have ended in a draw.

18:33 Loic Fery, Lorient President on Twitter : ‘Has never been so much English interest at the Moustoir. Deals from L1 to PL are the fashion. Hope not for our players.’

18:17 Everton, QPR and Newcastle all have scouts present in Toulouse tonight. Capoue, Haidara, Sissoko and M’Bengue all being watched.

18:10 Valenciennes XI to face Ajaccio: Penneteau, Angoua, Isimat-Mirin, Nery, Bong, Sankhare, R.Gomis, Aboubakar, Dossevi, Le Tallec, NGuette.

18:09 Ajaccio XI to face Valenciennes: Ochoa, Poulard, Lippini, Maire, Bouhours, Andre, Pierazzi, Cavalli, Lasne, Sammaritano, Mutu.

18:08 Saint-Etienne XI to face Brest: Ruffier, Zouma, Mignot, Brison, Clerc, Clement, Cohade, Lemoine, Aubameyang, Mollo, Brandao.

17:56 Nancy XI to face Toulouse: Gregorini – Jeanvier, Sami, Puygrenier, Haidara – Ayasse, Loties – Karaboue, Hammar, Grange – Bakar.

17:52 Result: Marseille 3-2 Montpellier. OM scrape an undeserved victory with a last minute goal from talisman Gignac. Montpellier defended stoically and will feel hard done by. Potentially their captain’s last game for the club. He won’t have liked for his time at MHSC to end like that.

17:13 Result: Sochaux 1-0 Reims. Sochaux managed to hold on to a vital win at the bottom of the table, but it was full of controversy. Probably a handball in the build up to Poujol’s goal. Sochaux provisionally up to 15th. Reims into the bottom 3 for the 1st time this season.
