Police Ladies will clash with Immigration Ladies at the Teshie MATS Park in a tough Group encounter of match day two of the Normalisation Committee’s Special Women’s Competition today at 3pm.
The police women are favourites to win the group and are therefore tipped to beat the Immigration women to better their chances of topping the group that also has Samaria Ladies.
Coach Christopher Darkey of Police ruined his side’s missed opportunities on Sunday but believe they would come good in the subsequent games.
“We started serious training a little over two weeks ago so we are yet to hit top form. As we advance, we will become even better and the goals would flow.”
Halifax Ladies led by Black Queen’s Assistant Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo will return to the Tema TDC Park to play host to high flying Samaria Ladies who lead the group.
Halifax suffered a shock 1-0 defeat on Sunday at the hands of Police Ladies.
Back to their fortress, they will hope to make amends albeit to keep alive their hopes of making it to the next round of the competition.
Coach Tagoe says all was not lost, adding that, the team will bounce back strongly to return to winning ways.
“Sunday’s game is behind us now. We need a win today and that is what we are working at. Hopefully, we would do the needful and get our campaign on track.”
Hasaacas Ladies will be chasing their first point of the competition when they welcome Elmina Sea Lions to the Bompeh Park in a Group C encounter.
Hasaacas Ladies fell to a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Lady Strikers on match day one and if they are to make a meaningful stake in the competition they would have to win at all cost.
Group leaders Lady Strikers will welcome Soccer Intellectuals to the Cape Coast Stadium.
Defending National Women’s League (NWL) champions, Ampem Darkoa will attempt a second win in two games they host Pearlpia Ladies at the Valley View Park in Techiman in a Group B encounter.
The winner of this game will be in pole position to make it to the next round.
However, Northern Ladies and Prisons Ladies who will engage each other at the Aliu Mahama Stadium will hope for a stalemate in the other game so as to open up the group.
Having fallen to a 2-1 defeat in their various opening day games, Northern Ladies and Prisons Ladies will have all to play for as a defeat for either side could ruin their chances of advancing to the next stage of the competition.
Group A leaders, Kumasi Sports Academy will hope for yet another good day when they come up against Fabulous Ladies at the Wesley College Park in Kumasi.
A win would put them in a comfortable lead.
Second placed Ashtown Ladies after drawing 0-0 with Fabulous Ladies will stay put at the Police Depot Park to play Supreme Ladies.
