A couple of reserves caught the eye for Bamboutos FC in their frustrating two – all draw against Cotonsport, a huge positive for the club moving forth without usual suspects from the starting blocks.

West giants Bamboutos FC played against Cotonsport in a delayed match day 28 all time classic without six regular starters, but some new names shone throughout the game for the Mangwa Boys.

Young Donatien Tchami started his first game for the club, as he replaced injured captain Rostand Moukap. The youngster partnered with Jacques Bayem at the center-half position and remained honest to his task, despite the two goals conceded by his team.

With Tchami staying glued to his defensive duties, other usual reserves; Koupit Mani and Alain Nguimgo were a mouthful and probably too hot for a fragile Cotonsport defensively backline to handle.

After having helped Bamboutos draw level in the beginning of the second half, Alain Nguimgo who was superb although only regretted the fact that his team could not hold on for all three points after they took the lead courtesy of Arouna Dang, midway through the second half.

“The game was very difficult for us, despite our hard work we lost concentration and conceded a late goal. I think my goal is less important since we shared the spoils. I would have wanted it to be more decisive. We would double our efforts and try to take points from UMS in Loum,” Nguimgo told

Bamboutos of Mbouda have donated five key players to the intermediate Lions but coach Laurent Djam has a squad depth and could still deliver the goods the fans of the Mangwa Boys.
