Sivasspor prepared for the game against Balıkesirspor on Saturday 22 November without several key players.

Aatif Chahechouhe missed training while Manuel Da Costa and John Utaka could not take part due to injury.

İbrahim Toraman, Hakan Arslan and Deniz Öksüz were also unable to train due to injury.

Sivasspor midfielder Mehdi Taouil told reporters after training that the Balıkesirspor could prove a turning point.

“We have to get a good result against Balıkesirspor, it is a must win game if we want to escape from our current predicament,” Taouil said.

Sivasspor manager Roberto Carlos also revealed that his side would do everything to get the win.

“It is time to turn things around and we can only do this with a win,” Carlos said.

“The international break has given us time to train, think and reflect, we will show the real Sivasspor. 

“I always motivate my players and try to boost their morale, football is my life and I want to live my life as best as I can.”

The former Real Madrid star was appointed manager of Sivasspor on a two-year deal last summer.
