The Oluyole Warriors tactician has called on their 12th men to spur them to victory over Austin Eguavoen's men in the regional derby

Shooting Stars coach, Fatai Amoo canvasses for the support of fans when they host rivals, Sunshine Stars on Sunday.

The gaffer believes the presence of the Oluyole Warriors faithfuls at the Lekan Salami Stadium would make the difference as they aim to return to winning ways against the Owena Whales in the Southwest derby.

Shooting Stars are yet to pick a point since the start of the second half of the Nigeria Professional Football League. And they sit a place above the bottom spot.

“This is the time we need the fans most," Amoo told Goal

"They should stand by us and give us all their necessary support to boost the morale of the players in the game because we count on their support and return it with maximum points.

“It comes twice in a season between the two sides in the same division and we look forward to an interesting and exciting derby game and I hope we carry the day.

“I expect the boys to fire on and do everything humanly to win the game. I expect them to give all, so that we can have maximum points."

In the first leg of the derby, Shooting Stars were on the receiving end as they were defeated 1-0 by Sunshine Stars at the Akure Township Stadium.
