NWFL Premiership side Confluence Queens Head Coach Whyte Ogbonda is upbeat his team will bounce back from the 2-1 opening defeat at the hands of Nasarawa Amazons in the ongoing Flying Officers Pre-season Championship in Abuja.
An Adejoke Ejalonibu late strike helped the Solid Miners condemned the Kogi ladies to a losing start despite Arit Usang cancelled out Chiemebere Opara’s opener through the spot.
Confluence Queens will now face Bayelsa Queens in their second game of the competition and Ogbonda is still keen on guiding his side to the semi-finals.
“We played so well [against Nasarawa Amazons], but couldn’t convert our chances,” Ogbonda told media.
“There are two more games to play in the group games and am sure we will manage to qualify to the semi-final of this competition.
“We need to possess the ball more in our next game against Bayelsa Queens and ensure we don’t lose too many goal-scoring chances because we can’t afford that again.
“We are good to go and the girls will refresh and look forward to a victory against Bayelsa Queens,” he concluded.
