2023 NWFL Match Day 3 Preview: Heartland Queens set to trap Abia Angels

Posted : 28 November 2023

Still reeling from recent defeats, Heartland Queens express readiness for their inaugural oriental derby against neighboring rivals, Abia Angels. The highly anticipated clash on NWFL Premiership matchday 3 at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba, Abia state, scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 29, marks the historic first competitive encounter between the two sister teams.


Leading up to this momentous clash, both teams experienced mixed fortunes in recent games, with Heartland Queens facing setbacks at Nasarawa Amazons in Lafia and securing a victory at Royal Queens in Sapele. The upcoming derby carries additional intrigue with off-pitch factors, including shared coaching connections and player transfers between the teams, adding complexity to the rivalry.


Coach Obi Ogbala recognizes the importance of securing a positive result in Aba to propel Heartland Queens back into contention for top honors in the league, and he may opt for a strategic lineup, including surprises yet to be revealed.


The team's key player, Lucky Mary, who has been relatively quiet in recent matches, may be entrusted with the pivotal role of leading the attack. The defensive lineup, featuring stalwarts like Kelechi Orgii and Onyedikachi Ekezie, aims to provide a solid foundation, while midfielders Oluchi Okwara and Samson Faith contribute to the team's overall strategy.


 A successful performance in the derby would not only lift the spirits of Heartland Queens but also position them closer to the top of the league standings. Looking ahead, the Owerri-based team is set to host Confluence Queens in a matchday 4 fixture at their home ground, Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri.
