Queens Clash: Heartland head to Royal for NWFL points
Heartland Queens will further her desperate search for a win in the five-week old NWFL Premiership at Royal Queens on Wednesday, January 11 at the Sapele Township Stadium in Sapele, Delta State.
Prior to Wednesday’s matchup, the Owerri side were held to a pulsating barren draw by visitors and former champions, Rivers Angels in Owerri while the homers had enough cooling off as they were drawn bye for matchday 5 actions.
The NWFL Premiership matchday 6 clash will be the first in all and non-competitions between both sides.
Heartland Queens after two initial mishaps to Naija Ratels and Delta Queens have been knocking frantically at the doors for a win to no avail in the immediate past two matches at the reigning champions, Bayelsa Queens and the most decorated side, Rivers Angels.
And with the return to match action from cards suspension of bullish attacking midfielder, Favour Dagogo and other key players from injuries the Owerri side could be well-primed to harvest their first three points in Sapele.
Of course, regulars are aplenty in full force including records chasing safe hands, Uchechi Onyechere will be on duty to ensure that the mission to Sapele is successfully accomplished.
However, that’s not to say that the homers will just lay back to be overrun without a fight. They will expectedly unleash their best arsenals in hot chase for the three available points.
Three points from possible 15 just a point better than the visitors make them as well strugglers and this scenario is most likely to make the clash keenly and hotly contested.
Chances are there that the outcome of the matchup could as well be decided by the benches as well as the side that take their chances which may not be aplenty.
Heartland Queens will conclude their first term campaign against visitors, Osun Babes in Owerri while Royal Queens will wrap up theirs at South South neighbours, Rivers Angels.
