THE STAKES
APEJES will certainly want to revenge the 2#1 defeat the suffered from PWD on the opening day of the league, and the Mfou side can close the gap with the top three of Pool A, as only two points separate them from leaders, union sportive of Douala.
PWD on their part, have picked up just one point away from home this season (their zero all draw with TKC), and will be looking for their first away win come Sunday. The Abakwa boys have lost three of their four away matches this season (against New stars, Union and cotonsport).

PLAYERS TO WATCH

APEJES’ bulldozing midfielder, Robert Tamatieu has netted 3 goals this season, while his other team mates, Brice Owona and Anjeh Calistus Anjeh are on two goals each. They need to show more of what is left in their arsenal, when PWD comes visiting. Coach Sokba Omarou can also rely on the likes of midfielder Yerima Issa Bouhari and the solid defending of Abel Grace Makani and Ulrich Yampili.

PWD can count on a defensive pairing of 22 year old Boung Ondoa Joel and 24 year old Burinyuy Derrick Laiver. Their solid defending has handed the Abakwa boys two consecutive clean sheets.
Goalkeeper Julius Atengong won 8 of the 9 points for PWD in the first round, and was phenomenal in the away game, and will hope to keep his place between the sticks on Sunday.
