St Etienne coach Christophe Galtier has warned his side against complacency ahead of Friday night's visit of Toulouse.
While ASSE have made a flying start to the season to sit second in the Ligue 1 standings, Toulouse are at the other end of the table after three draws and two defeats.
Galtier is wary of underestimating a Toulouse side that underwent significant change in the summer, and who have already held leaders Monaco to an away draw in their otherwise slow start.
``They only have three points but they have had some big games against Monaco and Marseille. They were also able to get a result in Bordeaux.
``It will take a lot of concentration, and above all determination, from us on Friday.
``There have been a number of departures and arrivals in Toulouse which may be the reason they have had a few difficulties at the start of the season.''
Toulouse coach Alain Casanova believes his side have shown signs they are growing into the season with only a late Lucas Mendes goal denying them victory at home to Marseille last weekend.
``We want to continue to momentum from the Marseille match,'' he told a press conference.
``The intention of the team in the game was very good and there are good vibes in the team now. I think with each match this team is improving.''
St Etienne are set to be without injured duo Jonathan Brison and Brandao, while Max-Alain Gradel is also likely to miss out despite returning to training.
Toulouse could recall fit again midfielder Abel Aguilar and striker Eden Ben Basat but Jean-Daniel Akpa-Akpro is set to be out until the trip to Paris St Germain in a fortnight.
