Marseille will head to Ajaccio boosted by the availability of Andre Ayew after the forward's foot injury turned out not to be as serious as first feared.

The Ghanaian was forced off during the second half of the Coupe de la Ligue defeat to Paris St Germain on Wednesday night, and it was feared he had broken a metatarsal.

But Marseille confirmed he had suffered no worse than "cuts and a knock'' to his foot and he is set to feature when Elie Baup's side, who will have Johan Cavalli and Eduardo suspended, travel to Corsica.

OM head into the match third in the table, but have lost their last three games in all competitions.

However, striker Loic Remy, who has yet to find the net in the league this term, believes they can bounce back tomorrow and he can end his goal drought.

He said: "My first job is to serve the needs of the team and I know that in some games there is no choice, you must help your team-mates defend.

"It is not ideal as an attacker but on Sunday in Corsica we have the chance to bring an end to this run.''

Ajaccio coach Alex Dupont has also received a boost with Benjamin Andre overcoming a dead leg to be involved.

The midfielder and Adrian Mutu will feature this weekend but are suspended for the upcoming meeting with Toulouse.
