Published on: 14 December 2022

Not many matches have been played so far in the 2022/2023 Nigeria Women's Football League Premiership, but being an abridged version of the league, some teams are seeking to consolidate on their start while for some, the need to get their campaign back on track is paramount.

On Wednesday, it will be match day 3 and there are six mouthwatering games to savour across six match venues in the country.

Nasarawa Amazons led by U-17 FIFA Women's World Cup Golden Bronze winning Coach, Christopher Danjuma has played two matches and is yet to lose or concede.

With a one nil win and a goalless draw in match day one and two, the Amazons have a date with Ibom Angles who will test their resolve for consistency at the Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi Benue state.

For league champions, Bayelsa Queens it is their second game of the league season after they didn't feature in the last match day and a second win will be on their minds after a 2-0 win against rivals, Rivers Angels in the league opener.

They play struggling Heartland Queens at the Samson Siasia Stadium and while theirs is to get maximum points, the Imo Delights will be looking at getting a first point or all points after losing their first two matches.

Lagos base team, Robo Queens have not had it good after two matches. With a loss and a draw, the Lagos Landladies should have just one thing in mind- to win as they file out against Edo Queens at the Agege Township Stadium in Lagos.

Edo Queens are on a jolly mood after their 4-2 win over Confluence Queens last Wednesday and will want to maintain that mood.

In other match centres, Delta Queens host Royal Queens for a second win of the season, Confluence Queens have a tough task ahead of them as they play Adamawa Queens for their first win of the campaign at Furore  Atiku Abubakar Stadium, Adamawa state while Naija Ratels knock horns with Osun Babes.

All matches come up by 4pm.
