Confluence Queens of Kogi will on Wednesday evening host Royal Queens of Warri in Iyamho, Edo State as both sides will battle for maximum points in a tie that promises to be keenly contested in matchday 3 of the Nigeria Women Football League Premiership.
The contrasting performance of these teams sets the stage for an intriguing encounter.
Confluence Queens, dubbed the “Wada Queens” from Kogi, have yet to concede a goal this season. Placed fourth in Group A with 4 points from two games, they secured a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Adamawa Queens in an away fixture during Match Day 2. Eager to claim their first home win, the Lokaja-based side aims to continue their positive momentum.
On the flip side, Royal Queens, based in Warri, find themselves at the bottom of Group A without a goal or a win after two matches. Their challenging start saw them endure a 4-0 defeat against Heartland Queens in their opener and a 1-0 loss to Abia Angels on home turf during Match Day 2.
Confluence Queens seek to maintain their promising run this season, while Royal Queens are determined to break their goal drought and secure their first points away from home.
The clash between these two teams promises an intriguing battle, to be a tough one as Confluence Queens are yet to taste defeat and Royal Queens will want to turn their fortunes around by finding the back of the net and securing a crucial away victory, which will be their first for the 2023/24 season.
