Rivers Angels head coach, Edwin Okon has said top-flights and neighbours, Bayelsa Queens are merely coming for sightseeing in Port Harcourt.

The Jewel of Rivers are hosts of the Restoration Girls in Wednesday’s Aiteo Cup semifinals second leg clash at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt.

The Garden City landladies and Cup holders were held to 2-2 draw by the Yenagoa side in the acrimonious first leg clash at the Nembe City Stadium.

Okon said his side are poised to once again prove their overwhelming superiority over the visitors, Bayelsa Queens.

“It was actually in Yenagoa that we picked the Aiteo Cup final ticket at the expense of Bayelsa Queens.

“However, we are not relaxing but working very hard to ensure there is no mistake when both sides clash in the reverse fixture on Wednesday in Port Harcourt.

“I think this year’s Aiteo Cup is over for Bayelsa Queens as they are merely coming to Port Harcourt for sightseeing.

“We will turn them back empty-handed as we are fielding same squad that held them at their backyard.

“I do not have any injury worry at the moment as the players are all good to go come on Wednesday.

“Bayelsa Queens fought us at their home and even tore the referee’s card we will not do anything uncivil we will receive them well, accord them due respect but will not discuss the three points with them.

“We are Cup holders our desire is to go ahead to defend the title successfully,” said the former Super Falcons coach to supersport.com.

Aggregate winners of the clash will have both legs in the Aiteo Cup final to confront the winners between Ibom Angels and Abia Angels/Confluence Queens.
