Brest have been decimated by absentees, with many of their squad injured or away on international duty.
Alexandre Alphonse is out with an achilles injury, and Benoit Lesoimier has a calf complaint.
Paul Baysse is also sidelined with a knee injury, Adama Ba is struggling with a back problem, but Jhon Culma should be back after missing the last game due to illness.
The African Cup of Nations has also had a big impact on Brest's squad depth with Ismael Traore, Ahmed Kantari, Kamel Chafni, Ousmane Coulibaly and Jonathan Ayite all preparing for the tournament.
Troyes will try and recover from a disappointing loss last weekend when they welcome Brest to the Stade de L'Aube.
Jean-Marc Furlan's men were came off second best in a fantastic encounter with high-flying Lorient, eventually losing 3-2 despite threatening a late comeback.
Meanwhile Brest fell to a slender defeat against Saint-Etienne, but they may well have the edge against a Troyes defence that is notorious for leaking goals.
However, Furlan's side seem to have found the goalscoring touch in recent times, and with Brest possessing one of the worst away records in the division, a much needed win for the relegation threatened outfit would not be that much of a shock.
