Technical adviser of Heartland Queens of Owerri, Prince Benjamin Nwoke has called on his players to seek nothing but a win in their encounter against former Champions, Rivers United.

The two sides go the against each other on Wednesday at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri in an Nigeriai Women's Football League (NWFL) Premiership match day five fixture.

Heartland Queens were not in action on match-day four after been drawn bye, but they have put themselves in top shape with series of  training, and Nwoke states that they are serious to get a good result this time.

"We have been training hard, and I have told my players that it is time for business. The match against Rivers Angels is a new beginning for us.

"I just took over the team less than two months ago, and I am glad they now understand my philosophy and pattern. You can see that from the game against Bayelsa Queens on match-day three."

Heartland Queens are yet to win a game after three games this season, but Benjamin Nwoke believes things will change soon.

"We know that we are bottom of Group A at the moment, but there's much to play and we will give everything from our next game against Rivers Angels."
