Lyon defender Eric Abidal made a return to action for the reserves on Sunday after three months on the sidelines.

The full back broke his left foot in in l'OL's pre-season tour of Korea in July.

After a long period of rehabilitation and boosted by match experience, Abidal should soon come into Gerard Houllier's first team reckoning.

Midfielder Benoit Pedretti and striker Pierre-Alain Frau also featured for the reserves, however Frau picked up a knock in the match.

The 25-year-old will undergo medical examinations on Monday to ascertain his availability for Sunday's Ligue 1 encounter with Ajaccio.
