Nigeria Women Premier Football League will go into the fourth week this weekend. Teams with disappointing results at the WEEK 3 encounters are busy re-strategizing to overcome their respective opponents this week.
The star match of the week would be in Lokoja, where the Confluence Queens would trade tackles with FC Taraba Queens.
The host who are still wondering what befell them last weekend in Oleh, Delta state where they were humiliated by Delta Queens by 4:0, after a scoreless first half.
But this weekend, they would strive to make something out in their home encounter against the Jalingo-based team who are yet to lose or win a match in the league.
Speaking ahead of this weekend encounter, Head coach of Confluence Queens FC Suleiman Adamu said his team will get things right again after his side’s ‘unacceptable’ defeat away to Delta Queens.
However, coach Adamu noted that the defeat was a shock and the team would make amend in their game against the Taraba Queens.
“We are not happy the game finished this way because that was not our target for the match. We put in our best in the first half. We will go back to the drawing board and work more on our lapses, we have double home matches and I think it’s an opportunity for us to quickly get back to winning ways.”
It should be of note that the League, last weekend recorded two away wins; the first was in the star match of the week played at the ancient kingdom of Benin City where the visiting Ibom Angels piped their host Edo Queens by two goals to one.
The match actually lived up to its billing with both sides putting in their best. This weekend, the Adams Oshiomole girls would be visiting Calabar to be guest to Pelican stars who also had the second away win in Yenegoa, against Bayelsa Queens.
The outcome of the match may likely compound the woes of the visitors.
Nasarawa Amazons would try to redeem their deflated ego at home when they host Bayelsa Queens in Lafia. The once dreaded Yenegoa based team lost their last weekend home encounter to Pelican Stars.
In Akure, Sunshine Queens would confront their kinsmen from Osogbo, the Osun Babes at the weekend while Delta Queens would travel to Uyo to consolidate on their new found forms where they are expected to be the guest of Ibom Angels. Both teams were in spectacular form last weekend, where they picked their maximum points in their respective matches.
