Confluence Queens club chairman, Abdul Sule has urged players of the club to do the double over Pelican Stars when both sides play on the final day of the Nigeria Women Premier League season on Wednesday.

Both Confluence Queens and Pelican Stars will square up at the Confluence Stadium, Lokoja in an exciting fixture of the NWPL.

According to Confluence Queens club chairman, Abdul Sule, he said the Queens have been charged to complete the double over Pelican Stars, who they defeated 1-0 courtesy of Ifeoma Polinus’ 88th minutes strike in the first leg in Calabar to wrap the season on a very good note.

Sule however called on the teaming fans of the club as well as supporters and followers of women Football around to come cheer the New Direction Queens to victory on Wednesday by identifying with the club’s blue or yellow jerseys.

“It has been an eventful season for the Confluence Queens, we’ve give a good competition this season though it may not be where we intend to be but we are happy so far so good,” he said.

“We want to make it a happy ending season that’s why we want our well wishers and soccers fans in general to come and cheer us to victory against Pelican on Wednesday.

“We want them to come in numbers and paint the Confluence stadium with our traditional blue and yellow kits and we believe their presence will be an added boost for the girls to give a good account of themselves at the match,” he said.

“Although, it’s quiet painful we would be missing out in the super 4 but that doesn’t give the fact that we shouldn’t finish the season on a high. Our ambition to finish the group B as the first or second was dashed and we have learnt our lesson as we would go back to the drawing board and plan adequately for next season.

The former Super Eagles utility player added that the stadium is expected to be filled to its capacity as the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor Yahaya Bello on Women and Children Development, Honourable Sandra Musa will be the special guest of honour at the match on Wednesday as well as other top government functionaries.

Confluence Queens are fifth on the Group B log of the Nigeria Women Premier League with 17 points while a victory tomorrow against Pelicans could see them finish third on the log behind Rivers Angels and Bayelsa Queens.
