Reims beat Caen for second successive win

Reims secured their first back-to-back wins since the opening two games of the season with a 2-0 defeat of Caen.
The visitors started well and thoroughly deserved their lead when Thievy Bifouma headed Nicolas De Preville's pinpoint delivery beyond Remy Vercoutre.
And Reims made sure of giving their survival chances a boost when on 63 minutes Prince Oniangue pounced after seeing his initial goal-bound effort well saved by Vercoutre.
Caen almost gave themselves a lifeline late on when Andy Delort went through on goal but Johnny Placide came out on top to deny the former Wigan striker.
