The reserve team of Stade Malherbe plays its maintenance this Saturday on the occasion of the 30th and last day of the National 2 championship. Reception of Plabennec at 6 p.m. on the Venoix complex.
A maintenance to be ensured during the final day: this should revive some memories for Fabrice Vandeputte. A little over a year ago, the first team then led by the current reserve coach saved its skin in Ligue 2 thanks to a penalty scored in added time. This time, Malherbe will not be able to count on Benjamin Jeannot, nor on any other professional player. The latter indeed went on vacation after the defeat in Rodez two weeks ago. However, Fabrice Vandeputte can hope for a quieter maintenance: a draw would be enough for the Caennais to ensure their maintenance in National 2. Even in the event of defeat, maintenance would be possible depending on the results of the pursuers. And if the Norman workforce will be extremely young, it will face a team probably demobilized. Already relegated, Plabennec took a heavy slap (6-0) against Saint-Malo last weekend.
The ranking before the last day:
11. Chateaubriant 35pts (-5)
12. SM Caen 34pts (-12)
13. Saint-Malo 33pts (-6)
14. Romorantin 32pts (-9)
15. Plabennec 26pts (-16)
16. Glazed 25pts (-13)
