After the walked over process were carried out, Chief Coach of Confluence Queens, Suileman Adamu known as “ ZICO” said the three points is a plus in his side’s ambition to finished among the top clubs in the group just as he noted that the Lokoja based club would not be carried away with the gifted points.

“It’s a plus for us, even though its unfortunate, but things like this do happen in football where you see opponent walked over their host.

“If they failed to meet up with the necessary arrangements to honor their match, they (FC Robo) attended the pre-match meeting but could not show up for the match proper.”

He went on  : “Our focus now is our next home match against Adamawa Queens in Lokoja, we hope to consolidate on todays picked points and I can assure you that we will not be carried away with these points and victory we gained in Lagos.”
 
Confluence Queens who played double home matches against Bayelsa Queens and Delta Queens before todays game against FC Robo, will return to Lokoja to welcome Adamawa Queens in the week 11 of the NWPL.
