After their mid season break, all the teams in the Nigeria Women Football League having refreshed will begin the second stanza of the League from Week 10 this weekend. The Week 9 matches have been rescheduled for a later date. It would be a battle of royalty in Yola where the Adamawa Queens will settle scores with group leaders Delta Queens of Asaba.
The match which is the star match of the group, will see the Adamawa girls who maintained a hundred percent home record in the first stanza of the league, strive to outwit the Coach Dan Evuemena tutored girls from Asaba. The home team would want to use all home advantage including the stress of travelling from Asaba to Yola to pocket the three points at stake, but they would surely meet a march in their visitors. The standing in Group A may likely change after the match between Inneh Queens and Martins White both of Benin.
No doubt, it would an interesting local derby, but Inneh Queens may likely get to the top of the group at the end of proceedings. In Lagos, FC Robo will meet a march in the queens from Taraba, that used the mid season transfer window to reinforced themselves and are ready to give all comers a run for their money in the remainder of the season. Kogi Confluence Queens would want to improve on their standing by trying to pick the maximum points in their home match against Osun Babes of Osogbo. Nasarawa Amazons will engage Standard Babes of Aba.
The star match of Group B will be in Abuja where Pelican Stars will be guest to FCT Queens. The Abuja match will be a rehearsal of what the two teams would have to offer in the remaining part of the season. Though, the Pelican girls finished the first round on fourth position, with the FCT queens following them closely on fifth, but at the end of the day, the team that makes the least mistake would surely smile home with the maximum points.
In Ibadan, struggling Tewo Babes will host youthful C.I. Angels from Asaba. On paper, the match is supposed to be a mere formality for the Ibadan girls, but the high level of skills been displayed by the Angels from Asaba, would give the host much concern. Rivers Angels will be basking on the euphoria of their last visit to Lagos, where they overran Police Machine by two goals to one, as they confront another Lagos team Tokas Queens.
The host will not want to crave so easily for their guest, as they may likely pull a surprise at the end of the day. Another high profile match will be in Akure where the Sunshine Queens will host Ibom Angels. The Mimiko girls will want to subdue their opponent considering the fact that most of the players that left the Akure side last season, all went to Ibom Angels. This will surely be a match of pride. The final match of the group will be. between Bayelsa Queens and Police Machine.
