Published on: 10 February 2023

Nasarawa Amazons Coach, Christopher Danjuma has expressed desire for his side to make the super six after their win over Abia Angels on Wednesday in the Nigeria Women's Football League, Nigeriasoccernet.com reports.

Danjuma's girls defeated the angels from Abia by two goals to one at the Aba Township Stadium courtesy of goals from Dominance Odubanjo and Josephine Matthias while Nnesoma Ibe scored a consolatory goal.

The Nigeria Women U-20 coach stated that their goal is the factor pushing them to make sure they gather more points.

"The table is a very tight one so definitely we lost at home when we needed to pick a point, we needed to recover outside knowing that we have more away matches to play,” Danjuma told media.

“The antecedents before us is the factor that’s pushing us to make sure we gather more points and qualify for the Super Six. You know football have this natural tendency when somebody is two goals down and keep fighting, two goals in modern football is not clean or home all the way.

“So when they pulled one goal back, definitely you see that the surge of energy to at least let them pick a point. All what we needed to do was to become a bit more tactical and forget going upfront. We keep our heads down and our next match is Edo Queens, making sure that no matter what’s happening we are within the top two positions.”

With their first away win in the bag which meant a double over Abia Angels this season, Nasarawa Amazons will head to the Sam Ogbemudia Stadium to see if they could replicate such feat against Edo Queens in their next game.
