Toulouse winger Franck Tabanou insists his side must take six points before the Christmas break, starting with tomorrow's tough home test against Marseille.
Toulouse sit 12th in Ligue 1 and have not won or scored a goal in three matches since beating league leaders Lyon 3-0.
Tabanou revealed the squad had a meeting this week to thrash out why they were underachieving.
``At the moment, there is a bad dynamic,'' Tabanou told the club's official website. ``With the talent we have on this team, it is not normal to be 12th. We have not scored in three games and the negativity is not good.
``We must react quickly. We must have a good second half of the season. On Saturday, we have to take the three points and three also when we face Sochaux. We need six points before the break.''
Marseille lie third in the league table, three points behind Lyon, but manager Elie Baup is expecting a tough test despite Toulouse's current problems.
Baup, who managed Toulouse between 2006-2008, said: ``During their last two games Toulouse were not the team that we saw against Lyon. I think against us we'll see the Toulouse side which beat Lyon, the side who scored three times and who had a great midfield and good wing play with Franck Tabanou able to create chances. We need to prepare for the team who beat Lyon.''
Baup believes second-placed Paris St Germain, however, remain favourites for the title.
``I feel that PSG are starting to be more efficient, to score a lot and to improve their attacking play,'' said Baup. ``We also have a good attack but we have to be more efficient.
``This Ligue 1 campaign is really open. PSG should outclass everyone, but behind them it's still very open.''
