To meet its ambitions, USON needs to regain the strength at home that it lacked at the end of last season. At the opening of the championship, the Neversois laid a first base, dominating Vannes, runner-up to Perpignan during the regular 2020-2021 season, at the Pre-Flower.
The Bretons, winners in the Niévre during the previous exercise, only left with a defensive bonus this year. Tonight, against Oyonnax, the equation will not be very different, since the Aindinois had dropped a silent Pre-Flower during the twenty-seventh day of the season last, against a team from Nevers in full doubt.
The situation has since changed and USON has regained enthusiasm as well as a positive state of mind, not cooled by defeat In Aix-en-Provence. Â € œWe lose this match because of two badly mastered passages, but we manage to take a defensive bonus, which means that we were able to win it. Obviously the group was disappointed, but that should not change the way we approach our matches “, explains Xavier Péméja, the manager of the ??? ? USON Nevers.
To receive Oyonnax, the staff generally trusted the men who had beaten Vannes two weeks earlier.
“The third row was particularly successful”. The Plataret-Adendorff-Fraser trio, complementary and efficient, will therefore be aligned. On the bench, Christian Njewel, who played for two years at Oyonnax before joining Nevers, could play his first game of the season. Yoan Cottin returns behind the pack to bring his experience.
TO?? the rear, Benjamin Dumas, convincing for his first in Aix-en-Provence, retains his post while Andrzej Charlat will make his first appearance since his return to France. ? USON, replacing an injured Camou.
Andrzej Charlat before the reception of Oyonnax: “If we win 6-3 or 3-0, it is not very serious”
The rear triangle, completed by Christian Ambadiang, could play a decisive role in the outcome of the meeting. Because Oyonnax has made a specialty of putting the opponent under pressure with kicking, with Yohan Le Bourhis who excels in the exercise.
And because the weather conditions are likely to be wet in the Pre-Flower, with rain forecast for a large part of the day. “The pressure foot game is a big strong point for Oyonnax, it will be up to our players to be attentive and focused to answer it. TO”
While the Neversois were not particularly sovereign under the high balloons in Aix-en-Provence, they also have arguments to compete in the air. The hinge Cottin-Reynolds has great qualities at the foot, and the USON, who wants to be more pragmatic this season, should put them to good use.
To exist in Pro D2, to find a place in the top six at the end, it is necessary to remain solid at home.
“We know Oyonnax is coming to win, which they did last season. We will have to play a big game, like against Vannes, to get out of it, avoiding making easy mistakes. To exist in Pro D2, to find a place in the top six at the end, it is necessary to remain solid at home. This will be the second match at the Pre-Flower, the road will still be very long. TO”
