Moses Simon grabs assist as Nantes edge past Dijon


Moses Simon provided an assist to help Nantes secure a narrow 1-0 win against Dijon in Sunday’s Ligue 1 game.

The winger delivered a brilliant performance in his 14th league appearance for Christian Gourcuff’s men, helping them to return to winning ways after last Wednesday’s defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

The 24-year-old Nigeria international set up Ludovic Blas to score the solitary goal of the game in the 73rd minute.

The on-loan Levante winger also struck four shots in the match, with one hitting the target and had an 85% successful pass rate.

Simon featured throughout the game along with Ghanaian defender Dennis Appiah, while Mali international Kalifa Coulibaly made way for Algeria’s Mehdi Abeid.

With the victory, the Canaries moved to the sixth spot on the Ligue 1 table after gathering 26 points from 17 matches.

Simon, who has five goals across all competitions this season, will hope to help his side continue the impressive form when they take on Nimes on December 14.
