Cotonsport of Garoua will be without Bawak Etta Thomas when they travel to Kumasi to take on Ghanaian side,Asante Kotoko in the return leg of the CAF Confederation cup playoff game on Sunday.

Cotonsport suffered their first defeat at home this season in the hands Asante Kotoko and now have a “mountain to climb” on Sunday without one of their main man.

Bawak picked up a yellow card in the second segment of the 2-3 defeat Asante Kotoko.The booking made it two yellow cards in the CAF competitions this season after his first yellow picked up earlier in the Champions league against Ismaily.

The 24 year old Intermediate Lion joined Cotonsport in November from New Stars of Douala and has already stamped his mark in the first team providing 3 assists in 5 games.

Cotonsport will be in Kumasi on Sunday to do what no Cameroon club has ever done; register a win by 2 goals or through penalty shootout in case of a 2-3 win at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi and stay in the CAF confederation cup.
The absence of the ever reliable defender doesn’t make it easier.
