CHRISTOPHER ANDERSON - Saturday, February 18, 2012
Sochaux will look to climb out of the cellar of Ligue 1 when they host their neighbors upstairs in the standings on Saturday night.

Former D.C. United loanee Charlie Davies has been named to coach Mecha Bazdarevic's game-day roster, and looks poised to earn his second appearance as a substitute.

The Sochaux squad from last Saturday's 1-0 loss at Rennes remains largely unchanged, except for the addition of French striker Cédric Bakambu.

The Auxerrois are coming off a disappointing 1-1 draw with FC Lorient, in which a late injury time goal from Innocent Emeghara offset an early Willy Boly goal.

The French duo of midfielder Edouard Cissé and defender Cédric Hengbart are the only two additions to Laurent Fournier's lineup, with left back Jérémy Berthod taking a rest due to a calf injury.

AJ Auxerre got the best of their last clash with Sochaux in September, cruising to a 4-1 victory thanks to a Dennis Oliech hat-trick.
