YOSA of Bamenda

 

Feutcheu FC of Bandjoun host Yong sport Academy of Bamenda on Sunday April 14, 2019, in a day 15 game of the league one championship. Feutcheu is now unbeaten in their last 5 games, while YOSA seems not to have had plans for the eventual departure of Ndoumbe Bosso. The Bamenda boys are still looking for their first win under interim coach, Thomas Ayuketang Kome.

THE STAKES

Feutcheu has gone 7 match days without suffering a defeat, and will hope to continue that run when YOSA comes visiting. The team is on 3 matches winning streak and just 2 points separate Feutcheu from pool B leaders Stade Renard. Coach Richard Towa and his boys have their eyes fixed on the top spot, and are ready to capitalize on any error from the leaders.
For YOSA, the team will be looking for their first win in four games. The team has not won any game since Thomas Ayuketang Kome took over on interim basis. YOSA risk dropping far down the pecking orders in Pool B, should they fail to win on Sunday in Bafoussam. The team will also be in search of their first ever win over Feutcheu.
