NWFL: Heartland Queens’ Ekezie upbeat ahead of Confluence Queens clash

Heartland Queens Center back Onyedikachi Ekezie is upbeat for a convincing victory for her side against the visitors, Confluence Queens.

The Owerri landladies will play host to the Confluence City side in Wednesday’s NWFL Premiership matchday four matchups at the main bowl of Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri.

The top flights have met once in a competitive game, the Federation Cup round of 32 clash with the homers, who all smiled on the occasion and will meet each other for the first time in the league.

Ekezie said her teammates are on the same page to make their home ground a fortress for other visiting sides in the ongoing topflight.

“I remember we overpowered them early in the year at the Federation Cup round of 32 clash, and we will meet them for the first time in the league; I am confident that we will beat them again this time. Our teamwork and spirit are high, and we will all smile at the end of 90 minutes.

“I believe in my teammates, the goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and attackers; we are on the same page and good to go. We have prepared our minds to give our all to the match and designed our minds to win the game; all of us are good to go.

“Yes, our first match on this pitch ended up in a sweet victory for us, and this pitch will give us another win on Wednesday.

“We have resolved to make this ground a fortress for other visiting teams. We want to keep the sanctity of this ground; that’s our dream,” said the strong-built and no-nonsense defender to the club media.

The slim, strong woman said her side is further motivated to go for a resounding victory against the visitors so that the Owerri mainstreams will climb to the top of the Group’s log for keep.

“Yes, once we beat Confluence Queens on Wednesday, we will have the chance to climb to the top, and once we achieve the feat this time, we will not let go of it until we grab the Super Six ticket.

“Of course, playing in our first time Super Six is our target, that’s our target, and the players are in agreement with it,” said the gentle hard-as-nails defender.

On six points from a possible nine, the Owerri side is third on the eight-team Group A log, one behind the challengers, Confluence Queens, and the leaders, Nasarawa Amazons.
