Heartland Queens’ technical adviser , Coach Obi Ogbala has said for the umpteenth time that the Owerri Landladies intend to maintain the top spot at the NWFL group A table and that the only befitting gift for the government is the league prime prize, NWFL Super Six ticket.

The Owerri mainstreams sit atop of the eight-team Group A log heading into the festive break no thanks to the hard-fought 2-1 victory against hard-fighters, Dannaz Ladies in NWFL Premiership matchday 6 clash in Owerri.

The soft-spoken gaffer said the hard-earned win against perennial stubborn side, Dannaz Ladies showed that the Owerri landladies are on the right path towards achieving the season’s first time ever lofty dreams.

“Yes, I gave myself that target because I am a Super Six coach, I have been there and I have won the league title. So for me to push Heartland Queens to be in the Super Six is the surest rewards I have to pay to the government for sponsoring us and we can only do that by staying ontop of the league table.

“We are still working on it, thank God we are going on recess, we are going to come back refreshed and take on the remaining eight matches, so Super Six is truly achievable with this hard-earned result.

“This win means a lot looking at the year ending, our first home match here and our dreams to be in the Super Six, we discussed that the least desirable is for us to sit atop for the outgoing year and then we will have time to look at the remaining matches.”

“Dannaz Ladies right from Championship have been a stubborn side to us even the Federation Cup in Warri we won them in the dying minutes and this is the third time we are having such a victory, they are good and young girls. We really planned for this match so that we can get the three points,” said the former Nasarawa Amazons sweat merchant to the club’s media.

Ogbala who expressed delight in the victory however denied ever underrating the topflight newcomers from the nation’s centre of commerce, Lagos in the all important league matchup.

“Well I feel elated because that has been our game plan to win this match convincingly so that we sit atop for this year, so I am exceedingly happy.

“Not actually, it was not like we underrated them. In a game when you didn’t get it right from the word go something else set in.

“An initial loss of concentration but after the half mark pep talk the girls woke up and got the early goal and that loss of concentration came up again and they got the equaliser.

“We have to push harder after we saw the added minutes, and the girls told themselves that was not the agreement, the agreement was to win and that worked magic to see off the opposition and eventual victory,” said the mean looking and non-smiling gaffer.

The Owerri side are on break for the festivities and will resume on Friday, December 29 to commence intense preparations for the last first term match at Adamawa Queens on Wednesday, December 10.
