Amiens showed determination to bounce back in their 3-0 home victory over Lille in a rescheduled 8th-round of action in Ligue 1 on Monday, earning the latter a berth in the automatic relegation zone.

The match late in September was interrupted in the first half, and later postponed, after barrier of the visiting fans stand collapsed at the Stade de la Licorne, leaving more than 20 fans injured.

After their stadium was cleared to host future matches, Amiens held defending champions Monaco 1-1 at home three days ago, which undoubtedly gave them a huge boost.

Harrison Manzala finished a brace in either half of the match, before Moussa Konate's goal with five minutes remaining set it 3-0.

Remaining unbeaten in the past five league matches, Amiens climbed from 19th to 12th, while Lille, under the guidance of Argentine coach Marcelo Bielsa, have replaced Amiens on the second-to-bottom position.
