Super Six title a must-win – Evumena



Delta Queens coach, Dan Evumena has said the Super Six title is a must-win for his wards.

Title holders, Delta Queens will clash with challengers, Rivers Angels on Tuesday for the final of the ongoing Super Six at the Old Parade Ground, Abuja.

Delta Queens defeated Kogi Confluence Queens 2-0 and Bayelsa Queens 2-1 while Rivers Angels edged Sunshine Queens 1-0 and Nasarawa Amazons 1-0 to pave the way for the epic clash.

Evumena said the league shield is the only title available to his charges in the outgoing league season.

“We must go extra mile to ensure we clinch the Super Six title which is the only title available to us for the year.

“Rivers Angels are still in custody of the Challenge Cup title, so we can’t afford to lose the title to them.

“We’re not expecting an easy game; history has it that no match involving both sides has been easy. It has always been keenly contested. Rivers are no push-over, we’re not expecting anything short of a tough match.

“We’re leaving no stone unturned to achieve our goal. My wards are ready, in fact, they’ve been looking forward to the clash and are poised to give it their best shot,” he said to supersport.com.

The former Falconets’ manager said though this year’s women's league is an abridged version the winners must be regarded as the best in the land.

“The Super Six is aimed to round off the season which is an abridged version but that didn’t rub negatively on the quality of the finalists. I think they’ve demonstrated their pedigree in past and I make bold to say the winners must be considered the best in the land,” he said.
