Lorient vS Brest football liga match preview

Lorient coach Christian Gourcuff admits "the moment of truth'' is fast approaching for his side as they bid to lift themselves away from the relegation zone. Having not won since November 27, the club have dropped to 15th in Ligue 1, just a point above the bottom three. However, a win in tomorrow's Brittany derby at home to Brest would take them above their 12th-placed opponents. A draw at Toulouse last weekend ended a run of four successive defeats and Gourcuff knows they have to build on that.

After Brest, they face Ajaccio, Evian and Nice - all teams in close proximity - and Gourcuff accepts it is important to take points off each one. Brest have yet to win away from home this season although eight draws, including four in their last five matches on the road, have just kept them out of trouble. Midfielder Lesoimier Benoit and Jonathan Zebina both return from suspension but defender Omar Daf is suspended.
