Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris is urging his relegation-trapped Valenciennes to defeat Guingamp to improve their chances of remaining in the French top-flight.
The 22-year-old makes a return from a short-term injury lay-off and is set to lead the Reds attack as they take on fellow relegation-threatening side at the Stade du Roudourou.
Valenciennes can still avoid the drop to Ligue 2 but they must now target victories in all four of their remaining fixtures, with games against Bordeaux, Monaco and Toulouse to follow the clash with Guingamp.
And, the Spartak Moscow loanee wants them to inject the game with seriousness and determination it deserves to win the game.
“I’m glad to return and help the team. This game is crucial for us and we must win,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“About scoring, it’s good to score but most important thing is for the team to win,” he added.
The Black Stars striker has scored 9 times in 13 games for Valenciennes, provided 3 scoring assists and fired 32 shots on target.
