2 minutes

Fallen, despite a good resistance, on the floor of the Angevin leader last week (31-25), the men of Ibou Diallo, tenth in the standings, must pull themselves together because the mid-season is fast approaching. “We shouldn’t ask ourselves any questions, it’s a match that we absolutely have to win. We face a team that is in the same zone as us and that we have to get rid ofdeclares the Gonfrevillais coach. I had hoped that we could continue after the victory in Lanester (28-29, 7th d.), unfortunately this was not the case. We have not managed to find consistency in this first part of the championship, we still have three games to try to succeed. »

“If we are not ready to fight, we risk becoming disillusioned”

Success is therefore expected against Martigues. Martégaux who, if they may seem affordable, should not be underestimated. “There is a rather experienced team, with very good players, in particular some that I have been able to rub shoulders with over time. Even though they only won one game (in ten days), it is imperative to get out of the head that it will be easy. They will arrive for a second victory and if we are not ready to fight for sixty minutes, we risk becoming disenchanted. You have to be very careful, I’m much more wary of this kind of opponent than those at the top of the table. »

And for good reason, the Gonfreville coach is right to be wary because this season, the level of the pool is particularly high. “We realize that apart from Angers, which is in vain, there are many poorly ranked teams who manage to take training points from the top of the table. I find that the density is very important compared to what I have experienced in the past. It is a very homogeneous hen which is really not easy to negotiate. Every weekend, there is no room for error, which makes the task particularly complicated. »
