Young attacker Ikeh Ginika put the visitors ahead in the 11th minute of play but her goal was wrongly disallowed.

Midfielder Hannah Akpulonu again put the away side in front 25 minutes into the pulsating match.

The hosts fought back in the second half and capitalized on the defensive lapses of the visitors to snatch all the three points thanks to Uju Okafors late brace.

Speaking after the match through the club spokesperson Tosin Ojo, Technical Adviser of Confluence Queens, Musa Amorley insisted that his side gave a good fight even though they they lost.

“We had a fantastic game today (Saturday), though we deserved at least a draw but some defensive lapses cost us the defeat.

“Also, the home team fans also played some role by inciting the Referees in decision makings, which is bad for the development of the game.”

“There are positives we can take from this game, we will also return home to work on our lapses too,” the coach added.

Confluence Queens will return home to host FC Robo in a week two tie at the Lokoja Confluence Queens on Sunday 10th May, 2015.
