Cotonsport reminded detractors of their class and expressed their desire to go all the way for the fourth season running with a 2-0 win against struggling YOSA of Bamenda this Sunday afternoon on match day four of the 2023/24 MTN Elite One championship at the Roumde Adjia stadium in Garoua.
Goals in either half from Wassou Goue Patient and Emmanuel Njoh was enough for the boys of coach Daniel Breard to make it two wins at home in a row, following up the 4-1 against UMS just before the break last month.
Wassou converted an early penalty after Aziz Bassane was scissors to the floor by the YOSA keeper in the opening moments of the game before Njoh made it 2-0 with a well-taken free-kick late on.
The visitors entered the contest needing at least a point and performance to spark for the rest of the campaign which has started poorly with just a draw in their opening four games.
Unfortunately for the boys of coach Ndikum Blaise, they met a Coton side with hunger to correct their own slow start of the season that had seen them win twice, played two draws and lost one before kick-off.
It took just under a quarter of an hour before Cotonsport had their noses in front as Wassou dispatched the penalty Foudouop Yannick had given the triple consecutive champions.
The visitors had and squandered chances of getting their way back into the contest as Nchindo John Bosco’s efforts to help his club back into the contest proved futile most often.
Njoh sealed the three points with 13 remaining on the clock when he drove a beautiful free-kick from the edge of the box to ensure they pocket all three points.
The game ended 2-0 in favor of the 18-time champions as they register their third win in six outings.
At full-time YOSA were winless in their opening five games of the MTN Elite One championship season, having picked up just a point from a possible 15.
The defending champions on their part can pride 11 points from a possible 18 as they begin to show signs of the resurgence they have offered Cameroon top-flight championship fans in the previous three seasons they have been crowned champions. They are manoeuvring their way to the top of the championship while YOSA is rock bottom in their pool of the abridged championship.
YOSA will return to base and switch their attention towards Fovu of Baham which they will hosts in Mbouda in the next match day.
The Yongua’a boys will come into the contest very fresh, having rested in match day six as they were on standby.
