Sierra Leone native Mohamed Sankoh was pleased with his winning goal in Vitesse‘s home victory over Go Ahead Eagles on Saturday.

Sanko’s winner helped Vitesse Arnhem move three points clear of the bottom three with a much-needed 2-0 victory against Go Ahead Eagles.

“Massive three points and amazing atmosphere. We keep fighting, ” Sankoh on-loan from VfB Stuttgart posted on Instagram.

Vitesse went into the game with only two home wins all season, but they took the lead in the 21st minute through a Maximilian Wittek free-kick.

In the 63rd minute, Vitesse doubled their lead through a Melle Meulensteen corner converted by Mohamed Sankoh, a tapped-in from close range.

Isac Lidberg hit the crossbar late for the visitors, but they could not prevent Vitesse from claiming the three points that moved them to 13th. 

The Eagles are now three points above them. On Sunday, Vitesse away to NEC Nijmegen as they battle to avoid relegation.
