Heartland Queen’s defender, Williams bullish ahead of Adamawa Queens NWFL Premiership

Posted : 13 February 2024

Heartland Queens' right back, Nnenna Williams, is confident ahead of her team's NWFL Premiership matchday 8 clash against Adamawa Queens on Wednesday, February 14, at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri.

The first fixture clash between the premier league teams on Wednesday, January 10, at the Pantami Stadium in Gombe ended 2-1 in favour of the hosts, Adamawa Queens.

Williams vowed that her side would capitalize on the rare opportunity of the reverse fixture to even the scores with the visitors from Yola.

"It's our turn this time around to avenge the tearful defeat we suffered at the hands of Adamawa Queens in Gombe.

"Though we fought hard and lost the game 1-2, we were not outplayed on that occasion.

"We have been working tirelessly on our shortcomings, aiming to make the necessary corrections while we wait anxiously for the reverse fixture clash.

"We have been able to put our acts right and perfected the match plans as laid out by our coaches.

"We were beaten 2-1, but come Wednesday, we are not just going to beat them; we will double the scorelines; we are going for a goal feast," said the soft-spoken but hard-as-nails defender.

The former Delta Queens strongwoman said her side's backline is promising a watertight defence in the 'Operation Adamawa Queens must fall' encounter.

"We are going to put in our very best; we are going out in full force to ensure we cover our areas very well; there will not be any margin of error in the defence; we will make it a no-go-area for the visitors.

"This will be our little and minimal contribution towards our dreamed victory in the league clash," said Williams.

The no-nonsense all-rounder in defence said she would like to be remembered as one of the players that qualified the Owerri mainstreams for the first-ever NWFL Premiership Super Six.

"I would like to be remembered, even after several years, as one of the players that took Heartland Queens to the Super Six. And to crown the sweet remembrance, to have gone ahead to win the league title and more," said Williams, who joined the Owerri side in the ongoing league season.

Heartland Queens are atop the eight-team Group A log on 11 points, the same as challengers Dannaz Ladies, Nasarawa Amazons, and Confluence Queens on superior goals.
