Sochaux head into the clash still battling a host of injury problems.
Goalkeeper Pierrick Cros has a knee injury and midfielder Carlao is unavailable due to a thigh problem.
Thierry Doubai will miss much of the season with a knee ligament injury.
Edouard Butin, Sanjin Prcic, Joseph Lopy and Frederic Duplus are all still recovering from long term injuries.
Ajaccio take on Sochaux at the Stade Francois Coty looking to build on their superb victory at Toulouse last weekend.
The Corsicans surprised many by condemning La Tefece to their first home defeat of the season, a victory which snapped a run of four games without a win for the Islanders.
Sochaux also earned a positive result as they fought back from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Lyon. Sloan Privat was on target for Les Lionceaux and manager Eric Hely will hope that the 23-year-old - who has scored four goals this term - can continue his good form and break down an Ajaccio team that is difficult to beat at home.
The islanders have also begun to score more frequently in recent weeks, Dupont's men have netted eight times in their last three outings, and if they can maintain their potent attacking form then they may be able to secure a comfortable victory against a Sochaux defence that has conceded 19 goals.
Ajaccio should go into the game as favourites given their good home record, and although Sochaux have shown improvements in recent times, the Corsicans may well have enough to grind out a hard fought win and move further away from the drop zone.
