Adrien Hunou doubled the lead in the sixth minute before Matthieu Dossevi reduced the deficit for Antoine Kombouare’s men moments before half-time.

Ivory Coast international Gradel drew his side level in the 84th minute, however, Yann Gboho was at hand to ensure Julien Stephan’s men ended their 10-game winless run with his stoppage-time strike.

The result saw the Red and Blacks climb to the eighth spot after gathering 15 points from 11 games while their visitors dropped to 17th place with 12 points from the same numbers of matches.
