Lyon have declared their intention to fight the decision to ban their supporters from travelling to St Etienne for next month's potentially explosive Rhone derby.
Authorities in the Loire department made the move to prevent OL fans attending the Nov. 10 Ligue 1 game at the Stade Geoffroy Guichard in light of recent escalating tensions between the two rival sets of supporters.
