Guingamp Promoted | Rodez & Bayonne Relegated

Last night saw the final round of games from this seasons Championnat National.

The big winners were Guingamp who secured their promotion back to Ligue 2 and Gap who survived the drop.

Guingamp knew going into the game that a point would be enough for them to secure promotion as Strasbourg had already completed their games the week before. They got off to a great start and were 2-0 up away at Rouen after just 30 minutes thanks to goals from El Jadeyaoui and Mathieu Scarpelli.

Rouen pulled one back just before half-time to add a little tension to predcedings but Guingamp secured the victory and thier promotion thanks to a second goal from El Jadeyaoui after 73 minutes.

Gap also went into their game with Creteil knowing that a point would be enough to save them from relegation. Things started to look shaky for them just before half-time when they conceeded a penalty. As things stood at half-time Gap were still safe as Bayonne and Rodez were not leading in their games.

Gap started the second half strongly equalising after three minutes from a goal by Bouyarmani, this turned out to be the final goal of the game and Gap had done enough to survive.

Bayonne had done their part by beating Cannes 2-0 at home, but Rodez were unable to win their game at home to Niort, where they drew 1-1. These results saw Bayonne and Rodez join Plabennec, Alfortville and Gueugnon in being relegated to the CFA.

So a great season for Bastia, Amiens and Guingamp who have been promoted to Ligue 2.
