Women Premier League Resumes

04 July 2015, 09:20

Lagos - Die hard followers of women football in Nigeria will be treated to tantalising action when hostilities resumes this weekend.

Eight games will be going on this weekend and week four matches will be keenly contested by teams in the Group A and B.

Edo Queens, Osun Babes, Sunshine Queens and Rivers Angels will have their unbeaten records on the line.

Arguably the tie of the weekend sees 2012/13 champions Nasarawa Amazons taking on in-form Sunshine Queens, who will be hoping to bounce back from a week three loss to Rivers Angels and return to winning ways, while Kayode Olujohungbe will be looking up to his wards to continue their flawless record at the Lafia Township Stadium.

Defending champions Rivers Angels travel to face Taraba Queens at the Jolly Nyame Stadium. The homers will be eager to get back to winning ways. However Rivers Angels are unbeaten in three matches played so far, and could put another dent on the home team.

Struggling FC Robo looks set to get their first win of the season against Adamawa Queens. The youthful side showed promises in their first three matches but were let down by inexperience and they will hope to get back on track against the Yola-based team.

Confluence Queens still hurting from their week three loss to Adamama Queens welcome Group A leaders Osun Babes who have seven points from a possible nine. The match has a nailed on home win written all over it, but could the week three frustration get to Confluence Queens?

Ann Chijiene tutored COD Ladies have a mountain to climb with a trip to face Pelican Stars at the UNICAL Pitch. It promises to be an exciting match in Calabar.

Bayelsa Queens return to action, after the horrific setback of failing to honour their match against Osun Babes. This week they host Ibom Angels, who whipped Martins White Dove 4-0 in the last match-day. If Bayelsa Queens hope to challenge for the title, these are the must win games for Rollanson Odeh's side.

After three loses in a row, Capital City Dove will be hoping for a change of luck against Edo Queens, who are unbeaten so far.

Martins White Dove and Delta Queens clash at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium with both teams looking for the three maximum points. The Delta girls are yet to pick at least a point on the road and will be hoping to devour their neighbours.
