As the 2019 Nigeria Women Professional League (NWPL) approaches match day five across various centres this Wednesday, coach of Kaduna based side and debutants, Aminu Shaibu of Kaduna Queens has admitted that his side’s match day five encounter against league’s defending champions, Bayelsa Queens scheduled for this Wednesday, 4th September, 2019 at the Kaduna Township Stadium by 4PM will be difficult.
He made this admission on Monday at the club’s training ground where his girls were perfecting their game plan ahead of the crucial fixture.
He said Bayelsa Queens will be hard to crack because of their pedigree in female football, but his young team are equally up to the tough task and has assured football loving fans of Kaduna maximum points against the Restoration Girls.
“No doubt we have a difficult match before us against a side that will be hard to crack. They are the defending champions and on top of our group too. They have all the experience against my not too experienced side. We respect them but we don’t in any way fear them because it’s not about the names on paper. By God’s grace, we shall play to win.
” If you look at our last home match against Nasarawa Amazons, you will agree with me that the better side won. We created the most scoring chances and buried two. Our girls are beginning to understand how we want them to play and the result is beginning to manifest. The focus is now on Bayelsa Queens as the 2-0 home victory over Nasarawa Amazons is now in the history books.
“Our approach won’t be different. We will take the game to them, create chances of our own and equally punish their errors like we did to Nasarawa Amazons. If we can defeat a strong side like Nasarawa Amazons, then we can defeat any team,” he concluded.
Kaduna Queens currently sit on the base of Group C and a win against the visitors from Yenogoa will see them move out of relegation zone with the fixture between Nasarawa Amazons and Sunshine Queens billed for Lafia City Stadium postponed.
