NWFL: Naija Ratels will work on goal scoring chances, Coach says

BANKOLE Olowookere, coach of Naija Ratels FC, said the team would work on its goal scoring chances as the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership mid-season break begins.

Olowookere told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Friday that the goal scoring challenge can be attributed to tired legs in the team.

The NWFL Premiership announced its mid-season break to begin on Jan. 23 to Feb. 3 and will resume on Feb. 8.

“Going into the second round, some of my girls are tired. Five of them are members of the U-17 team that participated in the World Cup in 2022.

“I just have to manage them to play our last game against Bayelsa Queens. I also don’t want to rest them because I want them to still improve.

“The future looks bright for them and I want them to utilize every opportunity possible.

“ However, our focus going into the break will be to work on our goalscoring. We need to score more if we hope to get to the Super Six of the competition.

“Although, we are not under any pressure to show results. Either way, we will rest well and recover,’’ Olowookere said.

Naija Ratels are currently fifth in Group A of the NWFL Premiership with seven points after six matches. (NAN)
