C’Chartres Football conceded a 1-1 draw at Granville on Saturday 13 November. Back in three points on this result, commented by the Chartrain coach Pierre-Yves David.

First goal for Arnaud Loris

An uncrossed head right next to it then a recovery above. Loris Arnaud failed to put his match points in stoppage time. But, entering in the 64th minute, the striker scored his very first goal with the CCF eight minutes later, with a strike on 9 meters on a discount from Aboubacar Diakhaby.

After taking his troubles patiently for a long time, first while waiting to qualify and then due to a small thigh injury, the former pro did not need much playing time to demonstrate that it constitutes an additional offensive asset for the CCF.

With his experience and his qualities as a surface player, he could quickly become a starter in a formation that averages just over one goal per game.

“I had already liked his entry into Évreux (0-1), last week. There, he scores and creates chances. This is a good indicator, underlines the Chartrain coach. He has a different profile from our other attackers, who are movement players. If he manages to raise the slider to the athletic level, we will have more complementarity and options. »

Eleven against ten, it wasn’t enough

For the third time this season, the CCF finished a game at eleven against ten. But, as in Saint-Malo (0-0), and not as in Évreux, he did not know how to take advantage of it to glean three points.

And, this time, he nevertheless had much more than twelve minutes in numerical superiority to make the difference since Magassouba was expelled from the 24th, while the scoreboard indicated 0-0.

“Look at Laval yesterday (Editor’s note: Saturday). They beat Valenciennes 2-0 to nine against eleven. It’s never easy against a team that finds itself at ten. The spaces are shrinking in front of the opponent’s surface…”, confides Pierre-Yves David.

Surprise on a counter after the break, his team managed to equalize, but not to force the decision despite a large number of occasions. “Clearly, there is frustration, slips PYD. We gave ourselves the means to win, we had a good match with a lot of opportunities, including a bar, while conceding little. But we were sometimes impatient, we didn’t stretch the lines enough on a boulder that was low…”

Four points in two moves

In two matches since the arrival of Pierre-Yves David on the bench to succeed Jean-Pierre Papin, C’Chartres Football has collected four points out of six.

“It’s true that there was room for improvement in Granville, but it’s not too bad, judges the Chartrain coach. We had two trips to negotiate, one of which was quite long and not easy here. Afterwards, there are plenty of areas for progress. »

PYD is already looking to the rest of the championship with, after a break next weekend, a series of three matches that are a priori affordable: against Beauvais, in Rennes, then against Blois.

“We will have to be ambitious and take a lot of points before going to Poissy for our last match before the break. I want us to give ourselves the means to continue. The Chartrain coach says he does not look at the ranking, a table where the CCF appears in 6th place, ten points behind the leader, but with one game more than many teams.

He prefers to focus on the game. “Today, everything is not set so that we aim for a certain level of performance. There’s work. “It is an intense week that awaits its players…
