CLERMONT - TROYES
I have been subject to power cuts/surges several times today and it has caused me to lose a lot of my notes on today's matches, which is a bit of a ........ pain. So, very briefly ....
Although they have yet to prove it on the pitch, Troyes have fantastic attacking options at the club with six proven gaolscsorers on their books. They might take heart from a come from behind win over Angers in midweek and will fancy their chances at a venu, where they have won on their last two visits. They are unbeaten in six meetings and Clermont, in that so often difficult second season following promotion, are conceding far too freely, allowing two or more in four of their last five starts, including four in a bit of a thumping from Boulogne in midweek.
Once Troyes really shake off the disappointment of missing out on promotion last season, I expect them to climb the table, here would be a good place to start.
