Royal Queens v Naija Ratels – Sapele Stadium – 4pm
Royal Queens is still yet to record any point in the ongoing Premiership. This means they have lost all three matches played so far in the tournament.

Their third loss was against Confluence Queens, which they lost with a goal to nil. Hopefully, as they set up against Naija Ratels at Sapele Stadium Delta by 4pm., an end will come to their goalless and pointless record.
Nasarawa Amazons v Abia Angels – Lafia City Stadium – 4pm
