Lille have been handed a triple boost with the return to full training on Wednesday of injured trio Simon Kjaer, Marvin Martin and Franck Beria.

Denmark international Kjaer experienced back pain in the warm-up before last Saturday's 2-0 win over Montpellier and dropped to the substitutes' bench as David Rozenhal took his place in the starting line-up.

Fellow defender Beria and midfielder Martin have been out injured for several weeks but, along with Kjaer, are in contention for this Saturday's game against Nantes after coming through a full session with the team.

Captain Rio Mavuba, however, remains a major doubt after missing the Montpellier game with a hamstring problem.

The club wrote on their official Twitter account: "Though @riomavuba24 followed a prescribed training programme, Marvin Martin, @simonkjaer1989 and @franck95sang (Beria) returned to full training with the team."
