A late goal from Moses Simon was all Nantes needed to complete a comeback win against RC Lens.

Nantes were two goals down as early as the 14th minute after Lens took the lead through David Perreira Da Costa and saw it doubled by Arnold Kalimuendo-Muinga.

Les Canaris had pulled level through a brace courtesy of Randal Kolo Muani before Nigerian star Moses Simon came from the bench in the 71st minute to net the late winner in the 90.

The former AS Trencin and Levante man last scored for the side in a 3-1 loss to Reims in September but has six assists to his name this season.

Nantes are 10th on the standings with 25 points level with two other sides above them but are separated by goals difference.
