Nigeria U23 captain Azubuike Okechukwu has revealed that Yeni Malatyaspor's victory over table toppers Karabukspor was the turning point the team needed and so it was not surprising they subsequently hammered hosts Elazigspor 3-0.
"The Kardemir Karabükspor match was the turning point we needed. After that we will continue on our way to winning more matches," Okechukwu said.
Sunday Mba netted a brace in the game against Elazigspor with fellow Nigeria stars Okechuwkwu and George Akpabio also involved.
The Turkish second division clubs are now seven points clear of the relegation pack after a difficult start to the season.
