Bruno Grougi’s Brest, away to Clermont Foot on Sunday, hoping to improve relegation prospects
It was three points secured for Brest in their last fixture, beating Nantes 4-1 at Stade de La Beaujoire.
Also, the relegation zone is not where Brest want to be at the end of the season, but that is where they are heading, unless they can get out of their losing habit. The Pirates have lost six of their last eight matches in the Ligue 1. Their position is twentieth in the League and they have six points, that is, 1W, 7L and 3D having won one game, drawn three fixtures, and lost seven meetings.
With a poor record on the road, which amounts to one victory, one dart, and four losse, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Brest as they travel once more.
Victory for Brest would take their points tally to 9 so far this season.
Bruno Grougi will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of three of his Brest players.
