Cotonsport of Garoua defender Etta Thomas Bawak has revealed Wednesday 2-0 victory against Canon Yaounde was a huge results for the rest of the current season for Cotonsport of Garoua.
The Cotonites breakdown a gritty Canon of Yaounde by 2-0 on Wednesday in a delayed match-day six fixture played at the Djoumessi complex in Garoua.
A goal in either half from man of the moment Lambert Ngueme Araina was enough to settle the much-talked-about champions league clash in favor of the 15 times champions.
Reacting after the game, Bawak told kick442.com qualified the results as a season decider.
“It is games like this that show us that we are doing something right. It was a difficult fixture against a very good Canon side just before a big game. From kick off we made up our minds to win, so it is satisfying to get these three points,” Bawak explained.
The makeshift left-back made his 10th appearance of 14 games this season and looked rugged at the back stopping multiple incursions from Ngon A Tati and co upfront for Canon.
“A bad result in this game could have affected us against JS Kabylie, so congratulations to the boys. This is more than just three points, it also keeps our confidence high,” Bawak concluded.
Cotonsport who moved up to the second spot in Pool B with 9 points obtained from three wins in four games have two games in hand but first face JS Kabylie in a penultimate CAF Confederation cup fixture on Wednesday in Garoua needing a victory to reach the competition’s quarter-final for the first time in seven years.
Bawak and mates have Thursday off before returning to regular club activities on Friday to prepare for Wednesday’s match-day five CAF Confederation cup game against second-seeded JS Kabylie of Algeria.
Cotonsport have lost just one of their five home matches in the competition this term and need to be at their best against a Kabylie side that scored late to record a 1-0 win in the reversed fixture.
Since arriving Cotonsport in 2018, Etta Bawak has improved the Club’s defending in the full-back role, operating to great efficiency as a left or right sided full-back.
28-year old Bawak forms and important part of Cotonsport’s chase of a first Continental glory and a 16th domestic league crown this season.
