Brest v Toulouse: Preview

Brest coach Landry Chauvin wants his side to build on their 1-1 draw with title-chasing Lyon to ensure they do not get dragged into a Ligue 1 relegation battle.

Brest currently lie 15th in the table, five points above the drop zone, but Chauvin is keen to get more points on the board and to start looking up the table, rather than down.

And although he was disappointed not to get all three points against Lyon - Kamel Chafni gave Brest an eighth-minute lead only for Tripy Makonda's own goal eight minutes into the second half to give Remi Garde's visitors a point - Chauvin was encouraged by his side's display.

``I regret the fact we didn't score a second goal because we had the opportunities to do so in the first half,'' Chauvin said in quotes reported on the Ligue 1 website.

``It's still a good point against a club who are nearly top of the table. We've got a more competitive squad now and in the last few weeks the players have been hitting their best form.

``We showed we're a coherent team and we have to keep picking up points and not look too much over our shoulders.''

Visitors Toulouse are 12th in the table, five points above Brest, but have drawn four and lost two of their last six games.

Their last two Ligue 1 fixtures have ended in goalless draws and coach Alain Casanova is beginning to regret the sale of Moussa Sissoko to English Premier League side Newcastle in January.

Speaking after the 0-0 home draw with Evian, Casanova said: ``We lacked intensity and rhythm. Defensively, we were effective though. Our confidence has been low for a while now.

``We were up against a well-organised side and we didn't manage to move them around. We're in a bit of a slump; we're realising that Moussa Sissoko's departure in January has changed our game.

``We need to come up with a solution because we need to get our confidence back. Our potential is much higher than our recent results suggest.''
