Chief Coach of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Nationwide side, Dannaz Ladies, Bashiru Fatai says his target is to gain promotion to the NWFL Championship which will allow the team to play at the top flight (NWFL Premiership).
“Our target is to promote to the NWFL Championship first, from there we can think about how to get to the top flight which is the NWFL Premiership which will allow us to get out of the country with the CAF Women’s Champions League.” He told www.kick442.com after his side’s 2-0 victory over Kazeem Eletu Queens in the knock-out stage of the ongoing NWFL Nationwide League at the Ijebu Ode centre.
The gaffer asserted that the knock-out game against Prince Kazeem Eletu Queens was not an easy one but their Pre-Season games helped them overcome their adversaries.
He said: “The game wasn’t an easy one. We have been preparing for this league for a while going for Pre-Season games in Lagos. We have already played today’s opponent in Lagos during Pre-Season at Magodo beating them 2-1.”
Deborah Philips gave Dannaz Ladies the lead before super substitute, Amarachi Anosikam made it 2-0 for Dannaz Ladies over Prince Kazeem Eletu Queens.
“We have some super substitute in our team that we normally use in the second half and that was what happened with Amarachi Anosikam who was introduced in the second half and scored the important second goal for us.
“I normally tell my girls to be fast with the game to get the deserved results. We had a lot of chances from which we could have scored more goals. That is football as chances might come without players utilising them.” Says Bashiru Fatai.
Victoria Idehen scored the winning goal as Moje Queens defeated Dannaz Ladies 1-0 in the first round-robin game on Tuesday.
Coach Bashiru Fatai opined that the team will take each game as a final game in a bid to gain promotion.
“For our team, we take all games as a final game. We prepare for all games this season as we are ready for the round-robin stage.” He concluded.
Dannaz Ladies will play four more games at the Round-robin stage of the 2021 NWFL Nationwide League from Wednesday to Saturday before the top four clubs gain promotion to the NWFL Championship.
