Bayelsa Queens head coach, Moses Aduku has said the 2019 Aiteo Cup winners, Nasarawa Amazons will not get any mercy from his side in the season’s last day matchup on Wednesday.
The Restoration Girls are hosts of the Lafia landladies in Wednesday’s Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) matchday 6 clash at the Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
Prior to the last day clash and NWPL Super 4 decider, the reigning champions were held to 1-1 draw at newcomers, Kaduna Queens in matchday 5 clash while the Lafia side shockingly shared the spoils goalless with visitors, Sunshine Queens at the Lafia City Stadium on Saturday.
Aduku said his side’s hope of cementing an automatic NWPL Super ticket is dependent on securing an outright victory against somehow troubled opponents, Nasarawa Amazons.
“I, players, management and our teeming fans know the important of the match against Nasarawa Amazons, we are not expecting anything less than outright win.
“Of course, it will be distasteful and unheard of for the last season’s league winners not to qualify for the Super 4.
“Our minds are focused on winning the match as any other result could be dicey considering that our closest challengers, Sunshine Queens are at home against Kaduna Queens.
“Of course, goal difference could be decisive so we do not want to give room to chance we want to win squarely.
“Of course, not, Nasarawa Amazons will not get any mercy from us, they were expected to win the clash against Sunshine Queens in Lafia but it ended in a barren draw.
“That’s football for you, a win would have put them on strong footing going into the last day match, that’s their own cross to carry not ours.
“However, we still expect a tough game from them despite the fact that we beat them right there at their backyard in Lafia.
“We want to win the clash firstly to qualify for Super 4 before we begin to consider retaining the league title.
“I’m somehow lucky to have one of the best legs in the land to execute successfully the all-important match against Nasarawa Amazons on Wednesday,” said the former Heartland Queens coach to frontpixs.com.
The Yenagoa side sit atop of NWPL Group C log on pretty 10 points three ahead closest challengers, Sunshine Queens while opponents, Nasarawa Amazons are third on four points same as bottom-place side, Kaduna Queens.
