Lens head coach Antoine Kombouare has urged his players to end the year on a high and tee themselves up for a survival push after Christmas.

Lens have found themselves in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

LENS, France -- Lens say the financial watchdog of French football has partially lifted the transfer ban imposed on the club after they received 2.5 million euros ($3.12 million) from Azerbaijan investors.

Lens won promotion last season but were banned from joining the top league on financial grounds, with the club short of 10 million euros ($13.4 million) in their budget.

The northern French side were ultimately authorised to play in the top flight after the French federation agreed to replace...
