Kisnorbo gains first win as Troyes coach

Patrick Kisnorbo has overseen his first win since taking over as coach of Troyes in French Ligue 1.

The Australian now has four points from two matches at the top-flight club.

Goals from Renard Ripart and Rony Lopes put Troyes 2-0 up after 20 minutes at struggling Strasbourg.

But Habib Diallo and Ismael Doukoure scored either side of the break to level the scores.

However, midfielder Xavier Chavalerin struck with a fine volley with 12 minutes left to give Kisnorbo’s men victory.

Troyes moved up to 13th, five points clear of the relegation zone, in which Strasbourg remain embedded.

Kisnorbo is the first Australian to manage a team in one of Europe’s ‘big five’ soccer leagues.
