Leader Troyes took another step towards a return to Ligue 1 by dominating Grenoble (3-1), Saturday in the shock of the 35th day of Ligue 2 which continues on Monday and saw Auxerre overtake Paris FC in the 5th square.
Three matches from the end, Laurent Batlles' men are sure to finish at the worst jump-offs.
They now have 71 points and ten lengths ahead of their opponent of the day, who remains fourth.
The Aubois won thanks to a double from Yoann Touzghar and a penalty from Florian Tardieu.

Clermont (2nd, 8 pts) will enter the scene Monday by receiving a team from Châteauroux already relegated, with the opportunity to widen the gap on his pursuer Toulouse, (3rd, at 9 pts), who, decimated by the cases of Covid-19, has seen its next two matches postponed. Paris FC (6th, 57 pts), lost a place, held in check at Guingamp (0-0) and beaten on goal difference by Auxerre who dominated Dunkirk (2-1) on a double from his striker Mickaël The Bihan. The Parisians can blame themselves for having obtained a penalty in the 89th minute, shot by Florian Martin but stopped by Enzo Basilio. The Breton goalkeeper saved for his family a point which allows Guingamp, 16th, to take a point ahead of Caen (17th), beaten in Sochaux (1-0).
Caen, more involved than ever in the fight for maintenance, lost on a penalty conceded at the hour mark by his goalkeeper Sullivan Péan.
Dunkirk remains barrage after its defeat (2-1) to Auxerre while Chambly, 19th, who thought to hold a vital success to still believe in maintaining, saw Nancy come back in the second half (1-1), on an individual error.
A draw which, however, allows Chambly to stay alive in L2, four points behind the Dunkirk dam.
