Going down is not an option for Super Eagles and Rizespor of Turkey player, Godfrey Oboabona.

The former Sunshine Stars of Akure captain says he is fired up and is targeting victory in Saturday’s match in the Turkish Super Liga against Gaziantepspor .

According to Oboabona, the weekend game is a perfect opportunity to boost their chances of escaping relegation.

Speaking from his base in Turkey ahead of the all-important tie against Gaziantepspor, Oboabona who has three (3) assists so far this season, says getting all 3 points is compulsory.

"We are not happy with our position on the league table and we are determined to fight till the end to retain our status in the top flight".

"Our match tomorrow is very important as nothing short of victory is good enough in our battle against the drop, it's going to be difficult as our opponents are also fighting against the drop".

He has featured 25 times this season for the Turkish club due to a 3-week injury layoff in the course of the season.  

Rizespor are presently placed 16th on the 18-team league table with 27 points from 31 games.
