Toulouse coach Alain Casanova is refusing to rule out a late charge towards a European place as his side go in search of their fourth straight Ligue 1 victory at home to struggling Evian on Saturday.

Three successive victories including last week's 3-2 triumph at Rennes have moved Toulouse up to eighth place in the table and within six points of fourth-placed St Etienne.

Casanova said: "We have ambition but we must not get complacent.

"The teams in front of us are not far away and we must continue to be consistent.

"We are on a good run and the goal of everyone is to keep learning and hope to get something at the end of the season."

Casanova has no new injury concerns but is still without sidelined trio Adrien Regattin, Jean-Daniel Akpa-Akpro and Mihai Roman.

Opponents Evian go into the game just two points above the drop zone after a potentially costly home defeat to fellow strugglers Valenciennes last weekend.

The result came after successive wins which had lifted the club out of the drop zone and coach Pascal Dupraz has urged his players to put the defeat to the back of their mind.

Dupraz said: "We are just above the relegation zone. We lost to a good team in Toulouse and we must look to maintain our hopes elsewhere."

Evian are once again without Djakaridja Kone and Modou Sougou, who are both suffering from thigh injuries.
