Confluence Queens’ Peter Martha and Amarachi Okoronkwo have backed their side to qualify for the WAFU-B qualifiers at the Nigeria Women’s Football League Premiership Super Six in Asaba.
The Kogi ladies are making a return to the NWFL finals after reaching the final of the Super Four in 2019 and they will be aiming to seal a place at the WAFU-B zonal qualifiers with the winner representing the zone at the third edition of the CAF Champions League.
Confluence Queens will hope to go a step further by winning the title under coach Ogbonda Whyte, a feat Martha is anticipating.
“We’re all prepared, tactically, physically, and psychologically. Going into the Super Six, I think no club will come and wouldn’t want to go back with something,” Martha told NWFL.
“My team also wants to represent Nigeria at the continental, it is achievable. We’ll approach every game like it’s our last game. We respect all, but fear none.”
Ogbonda Whyte’s side had a slow start to the regular season without winning its first three games but recovered from that to earn a nine-match unbeaten run which sealed a place at the Super Six.
And Okoronkwo echoed Martha’s view, noting that the NWFL Super Six will be a survival of the fittest.
“We are set but we still pray for grace. We all Premiership teams, so it will be a fight of survival of the fittest,” Okoronkwo told theNWFL.com.
“After playing three matches with one point, the team has to seat up and fight because the target was to qualify for the Super Six.”
The Lokoja-based side will face holders, Bayelsa Queens, Rivers Angels, Delta Queens, Edo Queens, and FC Robo Queens at the Super Six.
