2023/2024 NWFL: Heartland Queens defender, Onwere promises Super 6 belt for fans

Posted : 14 April 2024

Heartland Queens centre back, Oluomachi Sharon Onwere, has said her side will make it to their first-ever dream Super Six qualification against the visitors from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, Naija Ratels.

The Owerri mainstays will welcome their counterparts from Abuja, Naija Ratels, to Owerri in what marks the premier leaguers' fourth top-flight meeting in Wednesday's NWFL Premiership matchday 13 game at the sacred turf of Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri.

Onwere said aside from the main aim, which is to secure the Super Six ticket with a convincing victory, her side wants to cut down on the opponent's dominance, which has seen them win two of their three previous league meetings.

"We see this match as one that will lead us to the Super Six, and for me and the entire team, we have been working tirelessly hard to get the job done, and that's to win the match.

"Of course, we are more keen on winning than the number of goals or goal margin; winning is key, even if it is a one-nil victory. What we are after is to win the match come Wednesday.

"We will want to break the jinx that has seen the opponents win two of the three previous matches.

"This season, we have been to their house to pick up a point, and that's an indication that already the process of breaking the jinx has started, so we will finish it on Wednesday.

"We have been looking forward to the rematch ever since the first fixture clash.

"We are not relaxed nor taking the opposite for granted because they have a good coach in Bankole Olowookere, who happens to be the national U17 women's team coach.

"They are good, just like us. We remain focused and wait for matchday to play the game as we know it," said the lanky solid as Gibraltar rock.

The former captain of the Owerri landladies said her football career would be 100% complete for her to be a part of qualifying the side for their first-ever Super Six.

"It will be a dream come true for me to be a part of the Super Six success story.

"My colleagues in other teams that have attained Super Six status always tell me about how fulfilling and festive it is to partake in the elite football fiesta, and they always add that it truly makes you feel like a woman, and for me, it's already feeling like I am becoming a woman.

"I will be the happiest person on earth to be a part of this historical achievement, and that goes for the entire team. It's the first in the history of the team, and history is about to be made.

"And we, the defenders, hard-as-nails, have resolved to showcase our very best form on matchday, and we believe strongly that our best will take us to the Super Six," said the no-nonsense strongwoman.

Heartland Queens will be at home with the Super Six ticket in their kitty with victory against the visitors, Naija Ratels, even with a game to spare against top-flight newcomers, Dannaz Ladies in Lagos on the closing day of the league season.

The Owerri side is second on the eight-team Group A log with 21 points, two behind leaders and former champions, Nasarawa Amazons.
