Lorient midfielder Benjamin Corgnet believes his side can maintain their momentum after a making impressive start to the Ligue 1 season.
Lorient lie fourth in the table, level on 12 points with Paris St Germain, despite sitting six points behind leaders Marseille.
They travel to 17th-placed Evian tomorrow and, while Corgnet is confident his side can consolidate their good start, he is wary of an Evian side who narrowly lost 1-0 to Marseille last weekend.
Corgnet, who joined Lorient from Dijon earlier this month, told fclweb.fr: ``Evian play well and even though they lost to Marseille, they put them in danger.
``It will be complicated against them, but it will be up to us to play our game. We can hurt them and we must go there convinced of this.
``We are still unbeaten. We must garner maximum points and continue this momentum.
``I want to play as many matches as possible with Lorient. We'll see.
``I have only begun my second year in Ligue 1. I really want to win here and try to be decisive.''
Lorient defender Gregory Bourillon is suspended after being sent off against Nice while Evian will be without winger Sidney Govou who is out for three weeks due to a hamstring injury.
Evian captain Cedric Barbosa insists it is a home match in which his side must deliver after several disappointing results, including a 3-2 midweek league cup defeat at the hands of Sochaux.
``After a while defeats starts to weigh you down,'' Barbosa told etgfc.com. ``This is a game we must win and we must not stop there.
``The quality and the right state of mind are there. We must not put our heads down.''
