But they were deducted eight points from their total for the 2015-2016 season.
Club president Christian Perdrier said he would now appeal that punishment as well.
"We're innocent and want to be cleared," insisted Perdrier.
"We are the victims here, and having eight points deducted will put us in danger all next season."
The Professional Football League spent two days in March interviewing 50 people connected to the affair and decided there was strong reason to believe four second division games had been subject to attempted fixing.
