BRADLEY'S PROMOTION PATH NARROWS
EXTRA TIME
KENYA BROWN - Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Promotion to France's Ligue 1 for Bob Bradley and Le Havre is getting tighter.

Three games remain in the Ligue 2 season and currently Le Havre are on the outside looking in as they seek to claim the third promotion spot.

The team had a good chance to make the race closer with Metz, but their disappointing 1-1 tie with relegation bound Evian over the weekend leaves them three points behind the competition, with other teams such as Lens, Red Star and Clermont within striking distance as well.

Despite the setback, the morale among the former U.S. national team coach and the players appear to be high as there is still nine points to play for and they have the advantage of playing two of those games at home.

A look at the schedule shows Le Havre will play their remaining games against mid-table opposition, with their away game again Auxerre on May 7 being the trickiest one, while Metz have an encounter with top side Dijon this weekend and a difficult away game against Lens in their final game of the season on May 14.

The odds would favor Le Havre to have the advantage over the next three weeks, but the promotion will most likely go down to the final game.

Hopefully the season will be a successful one for Bradley who took the reins of the French side in November 2015.
