Gillot said that with the club having played more than 50 games so far he might decide to give a chance to some of the less tired players in his squad.
"I haven't made any final decision about the team for Saint-Etienne," Gillot told Ligue1.com.
"There is a possibility I will rest one or two players who are a little tired at the moment. We have played over 50 matches this season, but resting players against Saint-Etienne doesn't necessarily mean they will be better against Troyes on Tuesday.
"They have so much quality, so many strengths and we will have to be at our very best to get a result in the Cauldron."
Bordeaux are currently struggling in Ligue 1 this season and sit ninth.
