Simon Targets 8th Ligue 1 Goal:  Kalu Eyes Return For Bordeaux

Nigeria international, Moses Simon, will be gunning for his eighth French Ligue 1goal for Nantes in their away match against Reims tonight (Wednesday).

The 26-year old winger who arrived Nantes last season following a stint at Spanish Laliga side Levante Levante has totalled 37 Ligue 1 appearances clocking 2,969 minutes for Nantes.

Nantes, 14th on the league table will be targeting a return to winning ways against 19th-placed Reims with both teams having failed to win in their last five Ligue 1 outings.

Meanwhile, Super Eagles midfielder, Samuel Kalu will be eyeing a return to action for Bordeaux when they play host to Saint Etienne at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique tonight.

Kalu had started the season in good form for Bordeaux before getting injured while on duty for Nigeria during the last international break which has kept him out of action for some time.

The skillful player last starred for Bordeaux on November 20 when he set up Ben Arfa for the lone goal in the 1-0 away win against Rennes.
And having missed the last three outings against PSG, Brest and Lille due to relapse in the injury, the Nigerian might get a look-in against
St. Etienne.

Kalu currently has two goals to his credit in seven games this season, in addition to his four goals in 41 appearances in his first two seasons at Bordeaux.
