The Mali international got Jean-Louis Garcia's side a late consolation goal as they suffered their 14th loss in the league this season

Adama Niane’s late goal was not enough for Troyes as they lost 2-1 to Strasbourg in Sunday’s Ligue 1 fixture.

The first 45 minutes at Stade de la Meinau failed to produce any goal but the second half witnessed three.

Jean Aholou and Jeremy Blayac scored in the 65th and 69th minutes to hand the hosts a two-goal lead. But Niane’s injury-time goal was not enough for the visitors as they lost 2-1.

The Mali forward has now scored five goals in 21 games this season. The 24-year-old netted 23 times in the Ligue 2 last term to help his side secure top-flight promotion.
