Lobi Stars midfielder David Tyavkase is determined to keep the Nigerian club alive in the CAF Champions League by getting three points against Mamelodi Sundowns at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
Lobi have already tasted victory over Sundowns in this season’s group stage campaign, when they beat the 2016 champions 2-1 on match day one back in January.
The 34-year-old midfielder has tasted success in this competition before with Enyimba in 2003 and 2004, so he brings the type of experience Lobi need to overcome Sundowns.
Lobi are bottom of the group on four points.
“Lobi Stars have only four points now and we need all the three points in our next game against Mamelodi Sundowns to be in contention for the quarter finals. There is nothing impossible in football and we are seriously working towards getting a very good result away in Pretoria,” is quoted as saying on AllAfrica.com.
“Winning titles was a routine when I was at Enyimba but winning the league last year with Lobi Stars and qualification to play in the CAF Champions League, really made me very happy. It was the first time I was getting something with a team from my hometown and it was my fifth league title. Winning with Lobi Stars was special; it offered me fresh opportunities because I want to keep on playing football as long as I can.”
