Ghana’s Emmanuel Lomotey scored one of the goals as Amiens SC produced a 3-1 come-from-behind victory over 10-man Troyes in the French Ligue 2 Saturday afternoon.
Lomotey – the versatile midfielder – played in central defence in a 3-4-2-1 formation alongside compatriot Nicholas Opoku and Mali’s Molla Wague in the match-day 30 encounter at the Stade de la Licorne.
Troyes – who dominated possession throughout the game – put their noses in front in the 15th minute through Malian midfielder Rominigue Kouamé N’Guessan.
Iron Gomis pulled Amiens level in the 40th minute.
While it was ending 1-1 at the break, Troyes had defender Jimmy Giraundon receiving a red card.
Amiens made their numerical advantage count with Lomotey heading home a corner to put them 2-1 ahead in the 54th minute – his second goal of the season.
Alexis Blin made it 3-1 in the 78th minute to ensure Amiens cruised to victory over the French Ligue 2 leaders.
Both Lomotey and Opoku lasted the entire duration of the game.
Amiens SC find themselves ninth in the league standings with a game in hand.
