The Super Eagles star’s name will be the first on the team list when Nantes trade tackles with Angers on Saturday evening for reasons not so far fetched.
Moses Simon has been the Yellow Canaries most decisive player so far this term making himself indispensable for Christian Gourcuff’s side. And with tenth-placed Angers arriving at the La Beaujoire-Louis Fonteneau Ground next, Nantes will be counting on the creative talents of their Nigerian import to carve out victory.
The 24-year-old is the most productive Nantes’ player having had a direct hand in 6 of the goals scored by the Yellow House in the Ligue 1 by creating 2 goals and 4 assists in 15 starts.
The midfielder, on loan from Levante, has thus been involved in each of Nantes’ last 3 goals in L1, supplying the assists to the winners against both Nimes and Dijon.
A repeat performance would be welcomed from a winger who has delivered an assist in 3 of his last 4 league games to fuel Nantes rise up the table. The Canaries are currently 5th with 29 points from 18 matches.
Simon and Nantes should come into Saturday’s match high on confidence against a struggling Angers side that have taken just 1 point from the last available 12.
Inspired by a Champions League spot that’s within reach and blessed with the talents of Moses Simon, Nantes’ prospects look fairly bright as regards securing 3 points this weekend.
