NWPL Preview: FC Robo vs Rivers Angels


 By Jessica Amadi



This is one fixture in the Nigeria Women Premier to look out for as both teams head into the game with the aim of acquiring all maximum points.


Champions, Rivers Angels will hope to consolidate on Wednesday 3-1 victory over Adamawa Queens in a rescheduled week 13 game played at the Yakubu Gowon stadium.


The win saw the Port Harcourt side leap back to top of Group B standings with 23 points.


Edwin Okon is the Technical Adviser of Rivers Angels and he knows how vital it is for his side to snatch a point(s) from the hosts today.


“We are in Lagos to pick all points,” he said

“FC Robo is a good side no doubt, but we’ve met them twice this year and came out victorious on both occasions,

“We need to consolidate on Wednesday’s victory to boost our chances of winning the group,” he added.


FC Robo on their side have not had a good run so far, having lost their last three games on the road.


They suffered their heaviest defeat to Delta Queens during a week 11 encounter where they fell 5-0 on September 28 and then lost 3-0 to Confluence Queenson Wednesday in a rescheduled week 13 game.


No doubt FC Robo will give the visitors a fierce battle when they faceoff this afternoon.


The reverse fixture ended 2-0 in favour of Rivers Angels
