Following back to back away wins against ABS and Rivers United, the Owena Whales goalkeeper is confident they can defeat Bala Nikyu's men

Sunshine Stars' David Ariyo has disclosed his side's determination to get the crucial three points against Wikki Tourist at the Abubakar Tafewa Balewa Stadium.

Having won their last two always games at ABS and Rivers United, the Owena Whales are looking to secure the third against Bala Nikyu's men on Sunday in Bauchi.

And the goalkeeper admits his side is highly motivated and will surely put up a good display enough to secure a win against the Bauchi Elephants.

"We are aiming for three points against Wikki Tourists," Ariyo told Goal.

"At this moment in time, every point counts and we all know that from ten downward on the table, we can't really say anyone is safe from relegation.

"So we are really prepared and set to fight for victory against Wikki. We are happy with our new coach and anyone we want to play - we are doubling our efforts.

"The coach always motivates us. He asked us to forget everything that we affect our 100 percent performance on the field of play and play our hearts out because our names are at stake, the club and the pride of the state too if the team gets relegated which we don't want to happen.

"We believe they will give us some tough time but we have made up our mind to play them as if we are playing a final. We are going with all full determination and support of our management to win in Bauchi."
