Meanwhile in Lagos, a draw away to Dream Star Ladies was enough to see Adamawa Queens go through as group leaders in Group B as second placed Edo Queens lost 2-3 away to Heartland Queens.

A resounding 4-2 away victory for FC Robo over Osun Babes thickened the plot in Group A as the Lagos based side now sit top of the group with 11 points and +3 goals difference.

Rivers Angels on the other hand are now in second with 10 points, +2 goals difference and a gamẹ in hand at home to Delta Queens. Anything but a win tomorrow means that the AITEO Cup finalists will surrender the sole Super 4 ticket in Group A to FC Robo.
