Gerard Bakinde’s second half strike secured Union a precious win against Stade Renard in a Littoral derby at the Limbe Middle Farms Stadium.
Union’s 1-0 win over Stade Renard was their six in their last eight games.
It was Union’s first win in six attempts against Stade Renard. The Melong based outfit had won four and drawn one of their previous five meetings against the 2012 champions.
Stade Renard laboured in much of this Thursday’s contest with Bertin Ebwele’s erratic team struggling to the breakdown the opposition.
The Union back four of Franck Djaleu, Stanley Echabe, Serge Andoulou and Carlain Manga Mbah looked unbeatable.
Even when the Stade Renard front line managed to go past the Union backline, like in their lone second half effort on target from Alfred Meyong, Loic Fedjou was up to the task.
Gerard Bakinde’s long range effort at the 52nd minute was all Richard Towa’s team needed to beat Yannick Letizi Epane and Stade Renard of Melong.
Union’s resurgence is no fluke, as the Nassara Gamakaï are determined to continue their rise to the top.
Captain Samuel Nlend reiterated the Diedo based club’s ambitions at the end of the game “we are not concerned about the teams behind us, our targets are the team above us.”
