Ghana striker Majeed Waris struck the only goal of the evening for Lorient in a hard fought win over Troyes at the Stade de l’Aube to push his side from the relegation zone.

Waris, 24, proved to Coach Ripoll of Lorient that he is a goal-machine indeed by scoring the only goal to secure all three points for the visitors.

The former Swedish Allsvenskan star got the only goal of the game in the third minute connecting an intelligent pass from Jimmy Cabot.

Lorient strikers created several scoring opportunities as they were caught off with the Black Stars forward a couple of times to end the game 1-0.

Waris hit a brace in last week’s 4-3 win over Guingamp in the Ligue 1.

The win means Lorient move to 10th position from the 14th position keeping them away from the claws of relegation.
