Amazon’s are yet to concede a goal in the new season and could count on the strength of their defence and attacking forays to claim victory.
Adamawa Queens who maintained the 2nd spot on the log despite not tasting action last week,they return this week with plenty expected from them as they drag Confluence Queens of Lokoja to the Furore Atiku Abubakar Stadium,Adamawa state.
