Rivers Angels expect FC Robo to fight

Rivers Angels coach, Regina Akaraonye says she is expecting a big battle from hosts, FC Robo as the Women Football League continues in Lagos on Wednesday.

Following dropped points in last week’s action on home soil against Ibom Angels, champions, Rivers Angels are now condemned to get a decent result against FC Robo Queens at the Legacy Pitch of the National Stadium in Lagos.

The hosts lost 2-1 to Bayelsa Queens in Nembe over the weekend, making Akaraonye to envisage a tough game.

Akaraonye, however, believes her girls will put up a good fight during the game.

I can’t use our last result to judge the girls and I believe they know what is at stake on Wednesday after dropping those points last week,” Akaraonye told the Rivers Angels Media.

I also believe they will put up a good fight to get the point they lost at home,” she added.

The former Rivers Angels skipper also used the opportunity to dismiss the fact that the team was under the pressure to retain the NWFL title.

Akaraonye is optimistic the team is still poised on making the top spot on the log but however insists they weren’t doing that under any pressure.

We are not under any pressure. In the game of football you either win or lose,” Akaraonye said.

For the fact that we drew at home doesn’t mean we don’t know where we are headed.

Our target is to top our group and I know my girls will do it,” she concluded.

The reverse fixture ended 3-0 in Port Harcourt in favour of Rivers Angels.
