Alain Casanova’s side let a good chance for points slip by as they lost to fellow relegation struggers Lens.
FC Toulouse’s nightmare Ligue 1 season continued with a 1-0 defeat away to Racing Club de Lens on Saturday evening.
The South-West club knew that a match against one of the two teams beneath them represented a fine opportunity to win some much-needed points and improve a season that has lurched from disappointment to disaster.
This result falls into the second category, as Alain Casanova’s side remain three points off safety with a buoyed Lens side now hot on their heels.
Pablo Chavarria’s fine effort settled a cagey, nervous contest as Lens cut the gap between them and survival to just seven points.
