Remo Stars Football Club (RSFC) will start the quest to escape relegation when they take on Wikki Tourist FC this Sunday at the Pantami Stadium in Gombe.
The Sky Blue Stars are on 12 points in Group A of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) table and they have the chance to turn things around with maximum points against the Giant Elephants.
Remo Stars suffered a devastating 1-0 loss to Rivers United at the Gateway International Stadium, Sagamu and have put the Sky Blue Stars swimming in the relegation waters.
The Giant Elephants played out a 1-1 draw with Lobi Stars on Thursday in Gombe and earlier lost to Bendel Insurance in Edo State last weekend in the league.
Both sides last meet at the Gateway International Stadium, Sagamu and the Sky Blue Stars came out victorious beating them 2-1 with Victor Mbaoma getting the winning goal on the death of 90 minutes.
In a chat with Media, Lanre Runsuwe says the team is hopeful of beating the drop and he is determined alongside his teammates to ensure they do well on Sunday.
“Our game against Wikki Tourist is a difficult game but we are hopeful of getting a result, they are a good and composed side with great display on the ball but I think we should outsmart them.”
On beating the drop, the winger continued by saying “I look at the table everyday, I am quite unhappy because the club isn’t scoring goals at the moment but if we get something here and go away to Bendel Insurance to pick something again then we will go all the way to escape relegation.”
