Gervinho opened the scoring for the visitors in the first half but Lille failed to hold onto their advantage as Antoine Devaux equalised for Toulouse 15 minutes from time.

The draw extends Lille's unbeaten run to seven games and leaves them om 11 points, while Toulouse stay third on 14 points having missed the chance to pull level with leaders St Etienne.

Paris St Germain claimed their first away win of the campaign with an entertaining 2-0 victory at Lens.

The capital club were gifted the lead by a calamitous own goal after 50 minutes when Alaeddine Yahia cleared straight into the unfortunate Yohan Demont who saw the ball rebound over the goal-line.

An end-to-end contest was not settled until injury time when Nene beat the offside trap and lifted the ball over goalkeeper Vedran Runje.

Newly-promoted Brest secured back-to-back league wins with a 1-0 success over Valenciennes.

Nolan Roux scored the game's only goal 14 minutes from time at the Stade Francis Le Ble - six minutes after VA's Gregory Pujol had seen his penalty saved by Steeve Elana.
