St Etienne Vs Lorient 2/23 1:30AM GMT+8

Lorient midfielder Morgan Amalfitano admits the high-flying Brittany side are still enjoying their 5-0 hammering of Boulogne a fortnight ago - but it will be back to business at St Etienne tomorrow. Amalfitano was among the goalscorers in the rout - their biggest ever Ligue 1 win - which took Lorient to fifth in the table after a strong start in the opening 12 games.

Les Verts coach Alain Perrin will be boosted by the return of Boubacar Sanogo, who played in a friendly last week following a thigh injury. Although Mustapha Bayal-Sall is out with a foot injury, Perrin should be able to call on defenders Yoan Benalouane (back), Mouhamadou Dabo (muscle), Cedric Varrault (hamstring) and Sylvain Monsoreau (muscle) after their respective injuries. Former Lorient loanee Yohan Hautcoeur, now with St Etienne, warned his team-mates about the threat posed by his old side.
