The U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar, will be the action spot of the Match Day 11 of the on-going Nigeria Women Premier Football League. There, host Pelican stars will tackle high-riding Sunshine Queens of Akure. The host would have a huge hurdle to cross, as they would have to be up and doing in containing the high scoring Queens. In Jalingo, the Edo Queens will try their luck against Taraba Queens. The Taraba girls who have not been finding things easy in the League, may find it difficult to hold their own when the chips are down in that match, and it would not be surprising if the Oshiomhole girls record their first away win this weekend.
In Lagos, FC Robo will again be at home against Delta Queens of Asaba. FC Robo who were walked over last weekend at home, may have overcome that trauma, and would be ready to confront Coach Peter Dedevbo and his girls. It would be a revenge mission in Lokoja where home girls Confluence Queens would be hosting Adamawa Queens. The Wada girls who lost painfully in Yola during the first stanza, would want to pay the visitors back in their own coins. In Yenegoa, Bayelsa Queens would have their hands full, as they play Osun Babes of Osogbo. The high riding Aregbosola girls will surely be a hard nut for the home girls to crack. The host would need extra effort to stop the highest goal scorer in the League, Precious Edewor. In Benin City, Martins White Doves will host Ibom Angels, who may like smile back home with a favourable result. The match between Capital City Doves and City of David Ladies and; that between Nasarawa Amazons and Rivers Angels have been put on hold by the League Board.
