Nantes wins again under coach Conceicao to move up to 11th

PARIS (AP) Nantes is playing with the energy and tenacity its manager Sergio Conceicao used to show a player, and Wednesday's 1-0 home win against Caen was the sixth in seventh games since the former Portugal winger took charge.

Argentine striker Emiliano Sala scored for Nantes midway through the second half - the second straight match he has grabbed the winner after netting in a 1-0 victory away to Toulouse last weekend.
