League leaders Rivers Angels of Port Harcourt will this weekend strive to consolidate on their lead, as they trade tackles with Bayelsa Queens of Yenagoa. But considering the fact that the Yenagoa Queens are finding the stormy waters of the Premier League difficult, it may be a filled day for the Fed Cup champions.
Osun Babes would host Edo Queens in Ede. The Aregbe girls who are having it nice at home, may also pocket the maximum points at the end of the day.
Same might be the case in Akure where Sunshine Queens would tackle FC Taraba Queens. The Mimiko girls would not spare anything to take the Coach Morufu Adeyemo tutored girls to the cleaners. But, they would be in for a surprise if the youthful Taraba girls are allowed to find their bearings early in the game.
The grass at the Lafia Township Stadium will surely suffer after the ninety minutes of hostilities in the cracker between Nasarawa Amazons and Confluence Queens of Lokoja. Parading the likes of Dauda
Happiness, Margret Dike, Hauwa Abdullahi, Aju Francis, Chinasa Godwin and petit sized Racheal Akpojofor, the Captain Idris Wada propelled girls would be in for a tough match. But with the rich form of Chioma Wogu, Aishat Bello and Mariam Aluko the Suleiman Adamu-gaffered team are capable of causing an upset.
Another cracker would be at the U.J. Eusene Stadium in Calabar where home girls Pelican Stars would try to redeem themselves against their sister team Ibom Angels. Both teams had a dull result last weekend, with Ibom Angels playing a score draw at home to River Angels, while
Pelican stars surrendered their early lead to Confluence Queens in Lokoja. However, in Calabar this weekend, Ibom would unleash the likes of Precious Dede, Bessy Obot, Gladys Abasi, Osas Igbinovia, Edith
Eduviere and fast rising Mary Ologbosere on the host. The outcome of the game would surely have an effect on the standings of both teams in the League.
The last match would be in Fufure between Adamawa Queens and Delta Queens. SL1O reports, no team has travelled to the dreaded Fufure to honour league matches due to the security situation in Adamawa State.
