Bordeaux boss Francis Gillot feels his team have momentum at the moment but wants to see them scoring more goals in Ligue 1.
Les Girondins have two wins and two draws from their opening four league fixtures this term, but after the 3-2 triumph at Evian at the start of that sequence, they have only managed to net two more times.
In the Europa League they have rediscovered their scoring touch, beating Red Star Belgrade 3-2 in the second leg of their play-off tie on August 30 after a 0-0 draw in the first tie to claim a place in the group stage.
They were then held to a 1-1 draw at home by Nice in the league, though, a game in which Gillot believes his players should have made more of their chances.
Next up is tomorrow's away clash with Valenciennes, and ahead of the contest Gillot told www.girondins.com: ``This (goalscoring) is a recurring problem.
``We would like to score more. We put in three in a half against Belgrade, but against Nice, we had opportunities in two or three situations where we needed to score.
``The inefficiency is clear. If we had scored three times against Nice, there would be nothing to say. Hopefully we were keeping the goals for future matches.''
Although annoyed not to come away from the Nice fixture with all three points after the visitors' stoppage-time equaliser, Gillot is taking the consolation from that match that his side's unbeaten run continued.
``In the case of the draw with Nice, we were disappointed but we kept this momentum going,'' he said.
``It's a shame because there was room to win.''
It took two late goals for Bordeaux to secure a 2-1 win at Valenciennes last season, a victory Gillot describes as a ``little miracle''.
He is expecting another tough assignment tomorrow against VA, who go into the contest with seven points from their opening four games having suffered their first defeat of the campaign, 3-2 at Lyon, in their last outing.
``They are on a good run even though they lost to Lyon,'' Gillot said.
``I saw the game and they could have done better. They have desire and they do not have too many injuries.
``We know it will be difficult there, as usual. That we won last year was a little miracle.
``This year we will have more to say but it will still be difficult.''
