Larsen Toure has begun training again and could feature in this weekend’s squad, as could Gregory Lorenzi after he also began training this week.
Alexandre Alphonse has recovered from a blow to his achilles and should be able to play this weekend.
Brahim Ferradj, Moise Brou Apanga, and Diallo Guidileye are all still missing and will not play this weekend.
Last week Saint-Etienne came close to an important three points against Ajaccio, but after taking the lead through Florent Sinama-Pongolle they were pegged back by Carl Medjani's header. Although a point in Corsica is not a bad result, it leaves Les Verts three points behind in the Europa League race and now needing a result over a buoyant Brest side.
Although they are not the best travellers in Ligue 1, Alex Dupont's side will be confident and positive after the 3-1 win over Lille and will prove to be a difficult opponent for Christoph Galtier's men. If they can get the same level of fight, desire and ability as they did against the Champions then there is no reason that they can't leave with all three points.
Saint-Etienne are without a win in their last four games and the home fans will be anxious for a victory to keep their dream of European football alive.
