Lorient can welcome back Yann Jouffre and Lamine Kone for their Ligue 1 match against Caen on Saturday evening.
Les Merlus were defeated by AS Saint-Etienne last weekend, when a late capitulation saw them undo much of the good defensive work they had demonstrated for the first hour of the match.
Sylvain Ripoll will be delighted to welcome back Ivorian centre-back Lamine Kone, who missed the last three matches due to thigh trouble.
Similarly, as reported by France Football, Ripoli can call upon right winger Yann Jouffre, who has been absent for two months due to calf trouble. It would be a surprise, however, were the midfielder to immediately retake his place in the starting XI.
