19 November 2015, 07:46

Abuja - Sunshine Queens duo Aminat Yakubu and Yetunde Aluko have set their sights at ending the season on a high, by winning the final of 2015 Nigeria Women's Federation Cup when they clash with Bayelsa Queens at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Sunday.

The will hope to win the title for the first time after losing the last edition's final to Rivers Angels.

On the road to the final, Sunshine Queens ensured their second appearance in second successive finals after a 3-2 penalty shootout win over Nasarawa Amazons in Enugu in the semi-finals.

Yakubu said that a victory in the Federation Cup can only help Sunshine make up for their disappointing loss of league title at the Super Six in Abia State.

“We still have a Cup final to play, so winning the Federation Cup final which is one of the two trophies will not be bad. The spirit is high in camp and we are ready,” Yakubu told News24.

“I was not available for the team at the Super Six due to national assignment but I'm back, determined and confident that we will win on Sunday,” she said.

While Aluko said winning the Federation Cup title is a must for Sunshine Queens as they hope to end the season with a trophy.

“We cannot afford to lose the match. Though Bayelsa Queens is a good side and it's going to be a very tough game, so we won't underrate them, but we have to go all out to win the Cup,” the former Falconets attacker said.
