‘NWFL win at Bayelsa possible’


Ibom Angels head coach, Whyte Ogbonda has said his side are determined to end their search for away win at neighbours, Bayelsa Queens.


The Uyo landladies are guests of the Yenagoa outfit in Wednesday’s Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) matchday 6 clash at the Nembe City Stadium.


Ogbonda said the side target is to end the first stanza top-flight campaign with a minimum of eleven points.


“We are working very hard to get an away win in the on-going Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL).


“A rare opportunity is on the table when we visit hosts, Bayelsa Queens in NWFL matchday 6 clash in Nembe.


“Our target is to end the first stanza on 11 points and for us to achieve the mark we must beat Bayelsa Queens as well as Heartland Queens to amass six points to add to the four in our kitty.


“The players know the importance of victory as they have already missed several match bonuses due to poor results.


“Bayelsa Queens are always strong side and they actually fortified the side for the on-going season.


“We must strive to close them up in the middle to neutralise their potency and strength,” said the former Rivers Angels coach to supersport.com.


Ogbonda said he has marshalled out other players to ease off unnecessary attention on NWFL leading scorer, Charity Reuben.


“We have other strikers that will help Charity to fence off undue attention on her, she is our top striker and leading goal scorer we will rally round her to achieve her aim.


“We will spread and share the burden among the players so that it will not be only on her,” said Ogbonda.


Ibom Angels are fifth on the Group A log on four points four behind league leaders and champions, Rivers Angels.
