The Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) takes centre stage at the midweek with some exciting match up across seven centres.
The first game of the week five round of matches will see Bayelsa Queens square up against Moses Adikwu’s Heartland Queens at the Nembe City Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
Tarila Okorowanta’s wards will no doubt be aware of the importance of the game as a defeat at home will be a huge setback to their Super Four bid.
Heartland, however, will like to pick maximum points and move up in the Group A log.
The action continues at the Lafia City Stadium where Nasarawa Amazons will look to build on their success against Saadatu Amazon as they play host to Pelican Stars.
Amazons are currently top of the Group B log and a win could see them pull away from their rivals.
Pelican Stars’ last three league games saw them pick just one point. Their head-to-head record of one win, two draws and three defeats in six meetings with Amazons since 2013 makes this clash a tough one for them.
Lokoja will go agog as Confluence Queens battle with Saadatu Amazon in the North-Central Derby.
The New Direction Queens will surely fancy their chances against a side yet to record a point so far in the campaign.
In Port Harcourt, Rivers Angels will hope to feast on Sunshine Queens.
Sunshine Queens’ gaffer Wemimo Matthew and her scientific soccer team will have to count on the experience of Ijeoma Obi to get all three points against a free scoring Rivers Angels side who have Cynthia Aku leading their attack.
Aku already has scored two goals this season and will look to add to that at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium.
Ibom Angels will count on the form of their talismanic striker Charity Reuben against a well drilled Abia Angels’ team.
Vastly improved Delta Queens and unbeaten Adamawa Queens will light up the Kwale Township Stadium.
Elsewhere, Edo Queens will hope to compound the woes of off-form Osun Babes at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium.
