Jeremie Aliadiere and Alain Traore were on target in the first half as Lorient maintained their impressive run which began with victory over Toulouse and continued apace against Marseille and Sochaux.

Christian Gourcuff's men have not conceded a goal in that sequence and are now up to fourth place having recovered superbly from a seven-game winless run earlier in the season.

In the other Sunday fixture, Nancy remain at the foot of the table after throwing away the lead to draw 1-1 with 10-man Bordeaux.

Djamel Bakar fired the home side in front and their position improved further when Andre Biyogo Poko saw red at the end of the first half.

But Nancy were unable to capitalise and Henri Saivet secured a fourth successive draw for Les Girondins.
