The former Super Eagles captain has returned from a lengthy injury layoff and played in the fourth tier of the French league on Saturday

OSC Lille goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has been ruled out of the club’s clash with Guingamp on Saturday due to injury.

The goalkeeper was replaced in the 65th minute in their 2-0 defeat to Rennes, leaving Mike Maignan set to take his place.

''Enyeama, Benzia, Souamaoro and Mendyl are injured. Palmieri will be absent for personal problems while Mavuba is suspended,'' said Franck Passi during a press briefing on Thursday.

Les Dogues would hope to return to winning ways after losing their last three encounters against Stade Rennais, OGC Nice and AS Monaco.

Lille are six points away from the relegation zone and a win against Antoine Kombouaré's side would see them move up the log.

Enyeama has featured in 32 French topflight games this term, keeping eight clean slates and conceding 40 goals.
