NWFL24: Remo Stars Ladies v Edo Queens Match Preview

For the first time on their home turf in Ikenne by 4 pm on Wednesday, Remo Stars Ladies are set to face Edo Queens in what promises to be an intriguing clash in the Nigeria Women Football League Matchday 5.

This encounter marks the third meeting between the two sides since the inception of Remo Stars Ladies, with their previous encounters in the Betsy Obaseki Women’s Football Tournament resulting in defeats for the Remo-based team. Jokanola Bolaji previews the match on platinumnewsng.com.


Despite a promising start to the season, Remo Stars Ladies find themselves in sixth place on the log after matchday four, with three points to their name. Their season kicked off with three consecutive 1-1 draws, followed by a recent 2-1 loss to Lagos Landladies, Robo Queens, in their last outing.

The upcoming fixture poses a huge challenge for Wemimo Matthew’s side, as they seek their first victory against Group B table toppers Edo Queens. The big question looms over whether they can overcome their past failures against the high-flying team from Benin.


Edo Queens, managed by Moses Adukwu, have made an impressive start to the NWFL season, securing nine points out of a possible twelve. Sitting atop Group B, Edo Queens have showcased their prowess as a high-scoring team, notching up a league-leading nine goals so far.

Their recent triumphs in the Sheroes Cup and the Betsy Obaseki Women’s Football Tournament have bolstered their confidence, entering each game with a winning mentality. Having previously defeated Remo Stars Ladies twice in pre-season tournaments (2-1 in the BOWFT Group Stage and 3-0 in the BOWFT semifinal), Edo Queens enter this fixture as favourites based on their superior performances and capabilities displayed in their previous encounters.

The upcoming match presents an opportunity for Remo Stars Ladies to overturn their past results and claim a much-needed victory, while Edo Queens aim to maintain their dominant form and secure another win to further solidify their position at the top of the table.

The clash between these two sides promises excitement, as Remo Stars Ladies strive to defy the odds and secure their first victory on their home ground, while Edo Queens look to continue their winning streak and assert their dominance in Group B of the NWFL.
