FC Robo are leaving no stones unturned after defeating Dream Stars Ladies 7-0 victory in a pre-season friendly.

Hat-tricks from Rasheedat Ajibade and Monday Gift powered Emmanuel Orobosa’s ladies to a comprehensive win with Chinonso Ezechukwu making it seven at the St. Aggey primary school, Mushin.

The Golden Queens begin their Nigeria Women Premier League campaign against Nasarawa Amazons and one of the club officials feels the result was an enhancement for the team.

“A big morale boost for the season opener,” Silas Sabo told Goal.

“Though our opponents are not of Nasarawa Amazons’ standard, it’s good to have our squad jell together again.

“The build-up play and sustaining possession was our major discovery in the game. Plans are in place to work more on it and also on our defensive options.”

FC Robo finished fifth last season and would be hoping to reach the NWPL play-offs this term.
