Bayelsa Queens’ forward, Charity Reuben is of the view that her Club can sustain their leadership position at the top of the 2021 Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership table.
The Yenegoa based side extended their lead at the top of the table to five points after defeating Royal Queens 1-3 in their week eleven fixture last Wednesday coupled with Rivers Angels barren draw with Sunshine Queens.
The former BIIK Kazygurt player is optimistic about Bayelsa Queen’s title prospect.
“Winning the league and emerging as the top goalscorer at the end of the day is possible for me and Bayelsa Queens. I believe that by the grace of God, we can achieve this together as a team with the remaining 15 games.” She told www.kick442.com.
Charity Reuben has scored seven goals this season and is a goal shy of FC Robo Queens’ Monday Gift.
The winner of the February 2021 NWFL Premiership Player of the month after scoring three goals in February felt elated to win the prize.
She said: “It was an honour to me. All to the glory of God. I will keep working hard and scoring more goals to help my team and teammates so that we can win the league at the end of the season which will ensure that we represent Nigeria at the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League.”
After scoring her first goal of the season during Bayelsa Queens 1-0 win over FC Robo Queens on December 23, 2020, Charity Reuben went on to two against Edo Queens, and a goal each against Abia Angels, Ibom Angels, Osun Babes, and Royal Queens.
Bayelsa Queens occupied the top position on the league table with 28 points from eleven games, five points ahead of Delta Queens.
They will host bottom-placed DreamStar FC Ladies in their next encounter on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
