Alfortville were relegated to the CFA after a 2-0 defeat away at Niort this evening. The result leaves them 15 points from safety with just 12 left to play for.
Elsewhere, already promoted Bastia were held to a goal-less draw at home to Pacy. Second placed Amiens closed the gap between them and Bastia to just six points thanks to a 2-0 win over Bayonne, which should make the race to be crowned champions alot more interesting.
Third placed Guingamp pulled off the result of the night by smashing five past Creteil in a 5-1 victory at the Stade du Roudourou. Two goals from Giresse mean that he is now the leading goalscorer in the division with 19, overtaking Bastia (and ex-Guingamp) striker David Suarez who is on 18 for the season.
In the early kick-off Gap beat Plabennec 3-1 to pull themselves out of the drop zone and send their visitors into the relegation zone.
With only a couple of weeks of the season left it looks like Amiens and Guingamp will be joining Bastia in gaining promotion to Ligue 2 and at the bottom there are still 7 teams fighting to avoid the three remaining relegation spots. There should be some tense games in the next couple of weeks.
