It will be the battle of two South-South gladiators when Rivers Angels host Delta Queens in a league tie. Delta had outshone their regional rivals, claiming the Super Six title on three occasions at the expense of their Port Harcourt opponents, in 2009, 2011 and 2012.

Defending champions Rivers fought back to hold Confluence Queens in a replay of last season's Super Four final to a 1-1 in Lokoja where they walked away with a point. However, Edwin Okon's ladies have recovered enough and will be hungry for victory against the visitors.

Delta had a contrasting start in the Nigerian league as they thrashed Dream Stars 4-1 at home to open their campaign on a high. To challenge for title success this term, they must surely be aiming for at least a point from the encounter fixed for Sharks Stadium in Port Harcourt.
