The home side opened the scoring, with Cameroonian striker Andre Dona Ndoh firing home on the 21st minute after a terrific pass from Jimmy Roye.

Winger Henri Saivet, overlooked by Senegal for their international friendly fixture against Ghana on Saturday night, equalised with a fine freekick on 74 minutes, before Bordeaux secured a late victory after a 89th-minute finish from Adrian Dabasse.

The 21-year-old forward made no mistake after receiving a delightful ball from left-back and fellow substitute Theo Pellenard.

The game came at a cost for Bordeaux, however, who lost defender Marcus Planus to a hamstring injury on 20 minutes.
Planus was replaced and it remains to be seen when he will be able to return to action.

Bordeaux lacked rhythm, largely due to several absentees, and Willy Sagnol may be disappointed with how his 3-4-3 formation struggled against the lower-league opposition.
