"If he still feels pain (on Saturday), we will take no risk because Greg (Pujol) and Vincent (Aboubakar) are available," coach Daniel Sanchez told reporters.

Former Liverpool forward Le Tallec, 28, has scored five Ligue 1 goals in six matches this season.

Valenciennes are sixth in the table with 15 points from 10 games while Sochaux lie third from bottom on seven points.
