Enyeama keeps 11th consecutive clean sheet as Lille snatch win over Marseille


The Nigerian goalkeeper has now gone more than 1,000 minutes without conceding in Ligue 1 as Nolan Roux netted an injury-time winner to move his side within a point of PSG

Rene Girard's Lille maintained their remarkable defensive record in defeating fellow high-fliers Olympique de Marseille 1-0 at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

An 11th consecutive clean sheet for Vincent Enyeama in Ligue 1 gained added value as Nolan Roux grabbed an injury-time winner to give the hosts all three points.

The Nigerian was in sensational form on Tuesday night, denying Andre-Pierre Gignac with four instinctive saves as well as parrying a stinging drive from former Lille attacker Florian Thauvin.

Marseille began to struggle once both Mathieu Valbuena and Dimitri Payet were forced off with injuries in the second half, and Lille made them pay with a last-gasp winner from Roux, who headed home Florent Balmont's cross in the first minute of stoppage time.

Lille's win moves them to just one point behind league leaders Paris Saint-Germain, whose game in hand comes at Evian on Wednesday, while Monaco are a further point back after a 3-0 triumph at Nice.

Enyeama has now gone 1035 minutes since conceding a goal, with the Marseille shut out moving him ahead of PSG’s Salvatore Sirigu (950 minutes, 2012-13) in his search for the Ligue 1 record.

Only Bordeaux’s Gaetan Huard, who went 1176 minutes without coneding a goal in the 1992-93 season, now stands in the goalkeeper's way of achieving the longest streak.
