As the Nigeria Women Football League NWFL for 2022/23 regular football season draws to an end this week , Group B giants, Edo Queens Football Club of Benin-City, will on Wednesday, April 19th, 2023, at the Umuahia Township Stadium Abia State lock horns with Abia Angels in the last supremacy battle of the season. Time is 4pm.
The Moses Aduku-led Queens who hold the edge over Confluence Queens FC and FC Robo in the race to top the group for the Super Six will go all out in Wednesday’s game to ensure a win over the host having been beaten 1-0 miraculously at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium Benin by Abia Angels in a match that shocked hundreds of the fans. Umuahia fans should expect a similar ruthless and high-level performance from the Benin-based ladies in this crunch encounter.
While Edo Queens desperately require the three maximum points to maintain the top spot, the host will also be fighting hard to make an impact for them to escape from the relegation zone. The important thing about this match is that both managers would not want to fumble or gamble with any given opportunity. They would want to feature competent and results-oriented players that can deliver.
It is also important to know that the group B giants are not under any pressure as they are confident of running home with three points. Any way it goes, Edo Queens have already sealed their slot in the Super Six. However, the team knows the importance of winning this game which will also act as a warning signal to opponents in the Super Six.
The visitors should also expect a difficult match against the host side as many factors are expected to play out. One is, Edo Queens will come out fully to revenge the loss at home, while Abia Angels would also want to show that they are no pushovers. They would also want to.prove to their fans that the win in Benin was well merited.
Nevertheless, whatever antics the home team might want to deplore, Moses Aduku will be more concerned with ending the regular football season top as he goes back home to map out strategy for the mother of all, the Super Six.
