Lens beat Red Star for third win in a row
Lens XI: Douchez; Lala; Duverne; Cvetinovic; Hafez; Bourigeaud; Bostock; Gerard; Fortune; Cristian; Zoubir.
Red Star XI: Cros; Palun; Sarr; Hergault; Castelletto; Sylvestre; Mhirsi; Chavalerin; Sane; Ngamukol; Bouazza.
The opening half-hour of the match was relatively even, and while the hosts dominated possession, both sides created good chances and won several corners.
The deadlock was eventually broken through Cristian Lopez in the 33rd minute, as the Spanish striker found the back of the net after a cross from Gerard.
In the second half, the home side picked up where they left off, as Kevin Fortune won a penalty which was dispatched by English born Trinidad and Tobago international John Bostock to double their advantage only two minutes after the break.
Red Star struggled to get back into the game and the match finished 2-0 to the home side.
The result moves Lens into fourth place in the league, two points behind leaders Stade de Reims. Red Star lie in 16th place going into their 11th game of the season.
Lens’ next game will be away at Eastern giants Sochaux on October 17.
