2023/2024 NWFL Match Day 11: Heartland Queens FC Coach Obi salutes team resilience against Abia Angels

Posted : 29 March 2024

Heartland Queens' Technical Adviser, Coach Obi Ogbala, has praised his side's spirited performance against Abia Angels in their NWFL oriental derby clash in week eleven last Wednesday at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri.

The Owerri Landladies outclassed their visiting neighbors with an emphatic 4-1 victory on the day to complete the promised double assault.

Goals from on-field captain Chimebere Opara, Lucky Mary, and a brace from Chinedu Chinaka were all that was needed to demoralize the visiting neighbors.

Reacting to the spirited display of his players, Owerri Landladies' gaffer, Obi, said that his game plan was to disrupt the visiting team's game plan, which obviously worked for him.

He further admitted that Abia Angels are a good side and the fact that it is a derby made the encounter more serious because of the bragging rights that come with it.

He further praised the girls for reacting well and delivering the victory.

"I’m happy I won and I looked towards that because my eyes were on the three points.

"It was tagged the oriental derby, and I won them before, and bearing in mind that they play well gave me motivation, but getting four goals was a good one for me.

"Well, a derby remains a derby irrespective of how it’s played. They came with their game plan, but we demoralized them, making it look like it is not a derby.

"I worked towards it; if you are playing a derby, you must have a game plan.

"From the beginning of the season, I told the girls that goals count, giving them a target. They reacted well today and made me proud by delivering, so kudos to them.

"Right from week one, I was on top. Like I said, one match at a time.

"We are working towards Kogi Confluence already, taking into account our mistakes and moving on.

"Looking at the possibilities of achieving a Super Six ticket, and judging from the permutation, nobody is sure of anything yet, but we will work towards achieving it on time," Obi concluded.
