FC Robo Queens vs Pelican Stars (Legacy Football Pitch, National Stadium, Surulere)

It’s quite funny how Pelican Stars with some experienced players in their ranks are winless in their first three matches of the season, they’ve record just one draw and two losses.

Their chance of winning in this encounter looks slim because they face Osahon Emmanuel’s Robo Queens who currently sit fourth on the log. Chinenye Okafor, Gladys Abasi, Love Okon and a host of others will be optimistic of picking a positive result in Lagos.

Robo Queens have in their ranks the December player of the month in the league and with the brilliant Osahon Emmanuel on the touchline, it could only get worse for Pelican Stars.

Sunshine Queens vs Edo Queens (Ondo State Sports Complex, Akure)

Sunshine Queens rarely lose matches at home – all thanks to the tactical ingenuity of the manager in charge, Wemimo Matthew.

Therefore, a big test awaits Rollandson Odeh and his players because they face a strong team in Sunshine Queens that can be very stubborn at home.

It’s the second away game for the Edo Queens and it’s a return to Akure for the duo of Sandra Chichi and Elizabeth Zikire, having donned the Sunshine Queens’ longer before now.

Royal Queens vs Osun Babes (Warri Township Stadium)

Royal Queens are a very difficult team to beat and Coach Paul Mene will be in the dugout alone without his faithful assistant Ifunanya Patricia who controversially resigned from her position some days ago.

Both sides are ultra-attacking sides and they have the ability to create lots of chances from the flanks.

This is why Coach Yinka Adunola has called for the need to maintain the momentum generated against Pelican Stars last time out ahead of their tie in Warri against the Omoluabi Queens.

So we have before us a nail-bitting contest between these two amazing clubsides.

DreamStar Ladies vs Ibom Angels (Agege Township Stadium)

Lagos based DreamStar Ladies haven’t found joy in the league so far, alongside Nassarawa Amazons and Pelican Stars of Calabar, but DreamStar are in more precarious situation, they sit at the rock bottom of the NWFL table.

Heading into Wednesday game, one thing must be in the heads of Coach Anya Ugochi’s players which is recording their first victory of the season as they faces Ibom Angels on Wednesday at the Agege Township Stadium.

Meanwhile, Moruf Adeyemo must be aiming at getting a positive result against the Galaticas in a bid to move up on the log.
