Marseille coach Albert Emon has admitted his side have been going through an attacking crisis.
L'OM have failed to score many goals over the past few weeks with France internationals Franck Ribery and Djibril Cisse going through a difficult spell.
But Emon, whose side are currently fifth in Ligue 1, believes that their problems up front will be resolved soon.
"Putting four or five offensive players in front of the goal is not to score a lot of goals, it is more to create danger and to prevent the opposition from playing their game," Emon told But.
"I think we do it well but scoring a lot of goals isn't my aim, one or two will be sufficient.
"I have seen some great strikers facing a confidence crisis over the last three months, there were other players to replace them but unfortunately our strikers don't score.
"But I won't make it a problem. We are going to keep on working in front of goal and try to make our strikers more confident.
"We are going to do everything we can to make them score against Toulouse, there will be no doubt and they will have to convert our chances.
"I don't blame the players, they try. Franck Ribery is a little tired. The media always talk about him and Djibril Cisse, that is normal, two France internationals are facing a delicate period, but I think it is a collective problem."
