TINO Kadewere will be keeping his fingers crossed that he finally starts in the league against Angers on Sunday under new coach Peter Bosz.
The Zimbabwe international was an unused substitute in Lyon’s 1-all draw with Brest in their opener.
Bosz took over from Rudi Garcia after last season.
Garcia had warmed up to the former Harare City striker in his first season, with the striker managing to score 10 goals in 33 appearances.
Despite the departure of Memphis Depay, Lyon still have a lot of fire power upfront, making it difficult for all their strikers to get game time.
Other strikers Moussa Dembele and Karl Ekambi are highly rated while players like Brazilian Lucas Paqueta can easily play as a false nine.
