Delta Queens Football Club Asaba will on Saturday file out against Olori Babes of Warri in an Aiteo FA Cup encounter scheduled to kick off at 12 noon at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba.

To this end, the head coach of the 2006 FA Cup champions coach George Emenetie said the team have intensified training and are doing everything possible to ensure a win.

He said that a good result against Olori Babes is very vital as it will be the first competitive game for the Okowa Babes this season, adding that a win will further boost the high spirit among the newly assembled team.

In a chat with the team’s Media Officer Oris Esima-Aniretan, he said that going by records, the team could be rated favourites to walk away with a win on Saturday. He said that the Queens are more focused on the now and taking each game seriously and not underrating any of their opponents.

Coach Emenetie, who expressed confidence in his girls, also thanked the management for support in encouraging the girls.

Delta Queens Football Club of Asaba, in 2006, at the Abakaliki Township Stadium

defeated a hard-fighting Bayelsa Queens FC of Yenagoa 5-3 (penalties, after 1-1 at full time) in the finals of the FA Cup then known as  the Female Challenge Cup.

They were also Female FA Cup holders in 2004, and back to back Winners in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
