We have talked before about how strong Niort are at their Rene Gaillard home, where they have tasted defeat just once, in 35 starts, over two seasons.

They probably neeed at least two wins to secure their Ligue 2 safety and will be straining every muscle to ensure that tonight, is one of them.

Tours could well be officially relegated after tonight's fixtures, but have long since resigned theirselves to that fate and their coach admits to be experimenting with his line up, for the remainder of the season.

They have been dire on the road, "boasting" a 1-1-15 record and have managed just 2 goals and 2 points, in 6 starts.

Injury wise it is a draw, with both missing 3 players of a similar level of importance, to their club.

I have to side with the stronger team, in better form, with more motivation, in a stadium where they are virtually unbeatable.

6 points Niort -1/2 ball 1.50 general quote. 0-0 -6 pts

Good Luck.
