PWD Bamenda in Red Zone as Top Three Register Big Wins in 'Group A.

PWD Bamenda is in danger of relegation from the MTN ELITE ONE championship after going down 2-0 against Coton Sports of Garoua on Saturday. 

The Abakwa boyz were hoping to pick up some vital points that would help keep them away from the relegation zone ahead of the final round of games next weekend. Instead, they came up against a Coton Sport side in red-hot form, gunning for a playoff spot.

PWD gave a good account of themselves by going toe to toe with the defending champions in the first half of the game, limiting Coton to only half chances. The stars aligned perfectly for the visiting team when they were awarded a penalty, which Leonel Ateba failed to capitalize. The PWD man blasted off the post after sending the Coton keeper the wrong way. 

But it was only a matter of time before the 17-time champions showed their superiority after a well-taken goal in the 54th minute. 

The game took a dramatic twist when Coton substitute Hassana Mamoudou was shown a red card, but PWD could not make their extra man count. All hopes for an equalizer were dashed in second-half stoppage time when Coton made it 2-0, extending new head Coach Jean Baptiste Bisseck's unbeaten run to five games.

Canon of Yaounde and UMS of Loum also registered wins as the race for a playoff spot goes to the final day of the MTN ELITE ONE season.

PWD coaching staff and players know the only way PWD of Bamenda stays up is by winning their last game, which has effectively become a cup final.
