Marseille v Bastia: Preview

PA Sport

Bastia's Djibril Cisse is targeting his first goal back in French football against his old club Marseille on Saturday.

The former Liverpool and QPR striker joined Bastia in January from Russian club Kuban Krasnodar, but has yet to score.

Cisse, 32, said: ``Marseille is always a special game for me. I know the fans won't be happy to hear it, but OM remains the club that's in my heart.

``For 90 minutes they will be my enemies. We'll fight like dogs and it's always a source of motivation to be playing against your former club. To score a goal would be really good.''

Bastia are in mid-table, but without an away win all season, but they go into the match on the back of consecutive home league wins over Bordeaux and Guingamp.

And they can take further heart from the fact fifth-placed Marseille have been fragile at home, losing four games already this campaign.

Bastia coach Frederic Hantz has no injury concerns, but is desperate for some success on the road.

Hantz said: ``At home we've got the fourth-best record ,which is an exceptional performance, but if we want to finish in the top 10 then we have to win away at some point.''

Marseille's Ghana international winger Andre Ayew is back in training after a knee injury and may be on the bench, but defender Jeremy Morel (back) is definitely out, while midfielder Benoit Cheyrou is doubtful with a calf problem.
