📍Sunshine Queens Vs Delta Queens | Ondo Sports Complex, Akure| #SUNDEL.
Sunshine Queens are still searching for their second victory this season as they bid to move off the foot of the table when they face Delta Queens who are also desperate to get more points on the road as they continue to battle for a place in the Super 6 Championship.
The ‘Betty Babes’ are bottom on the Group B Log with just four points, while Delta Queens are fourth with 14 points, just one point behind FC Robo Queens who will be facing Bayelsa Queens at the same time on Wednesday.
The home team will still be without the services of key players like Blessing Nkor and Nelly Ekeh, who are still both with the National U-20 teams, as they prepare to face Senegal in the second round of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers. While Delta Queens are expected to face the battle with a very formidable squad.
📍Adamawa Queens Vs Naija Ratels | Abubakar Pantanmi Stadium, Gombe| #ADANAI.
Naija Ratels lost at home last week against Edo Queens by 3-0 and will face another stern encounter when they face Adamawa Queens at their adopted home ground, the Abubakar Pantanmi Stadium, Gombe.
Adamawa Queens have won their last three home games Confluence Queens, Pelican Stars and Osun Babes.
The ‘Fintiri’Ladies’ can be very unpredictable at home and Ratels would have a lot of work to do, if they are to get a valuable point in Gombe.
📍Rivers Angels Vs Royal Queens | UNIPORT Sports Complex, Porthacourt.
Rivers Angels will want to get back into winning ways, when they face Royal Queens at the University of Porthacourt Sports Complex on Wednesday. The ‘Jewels Of Rivers’ have won six games so far in the league and are sitting on top of the log in Group B.
Royal Queens big win against Nasarawa Amazons last week gave them a lifeline, as they moved out of the relegation zone. They now have a huge task ahead of them when they face the defending Champions on Wednesday.
📍 Bayelsa Queens Vs FC Robo Queens | Samson Siasia Stadium, Yenagoa| #BAYROB
It was a hard-fought 1-0 victory for FC Robo Queens when they both met earlier in the season and another close contest should be expected at the Samson Siasia Stadium, Yenagoa when these two teams meet on Wednesday. Both teams are in great form, the Lagos Landladies’ are just one point above their counterpart on the log. The ‘Prosperous’ Ladies are third on the table with 15 points, while FC Robo Queens are second with 16 points.
Both teams will be eager to get favourable results, a win for Bayelsa Queens means that they will move up above FC Robo Queens, while a win or draw for the Osahon Emmanuel’s tutored side will see them keeping up with the momentum on the log. It’s going to be a very interesting encounter.
📍Osun Babes Vs Nasarawa Amazons | Lanreleke Academy Stadium, Ile-Ogbo| #OSUNAS.
Nasarawa Amazons are one of the most consistent sides in the group A and will face Osun Babes at the Lanreleke Academy Stadium on Wednesday. The Solid Babes are in great form and will be looking at targeting a good result in Ile-Ogbo. Osun Babes are more determined now, after playing out a 1-1 draw in Lokoja against Confluence Queens. They are off the relegation zone, but will have something big to prove Infront of their home fans.
11 points separates both sides on the log, while Nasarawa Amazons are second in group A with 18 points, Osun Babes are 6th with 7 points.
📍Edo Queens Vs Confluence Queens| Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin| #EDOCON
After a disappointing result against Osun Babes at the Confluence Stadium, Lokoja, Confluence Queens will face Edo Queens at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, in an important encounter. Edo Queens are in a great run of form, and are the only team that haven’t lost a game so far this season. The Obaseki’ Ladies won Naija Ratels 3-0 last week in Abuja and will see if they can continue with the same form on Wednesday in Benin.
