With the old school clubs only good enough for the second tier of Cameroon football nowadays,Racing Bafoussam,TKC,Canon,PWD,Dynamo and robbing shoulders with the new breed of good clubs in Bang Bullets,Lion Blesse and what have you.”Setting the Cats amongst the Pigeons” obviously makes anything is possible.

As it has always been the case,3 clubs will be promoted to the first tier of Cameroon football come the end of the season with the deciding factor being the number of points accumulated over the course of the season.
Canon and PWD fought each other to a stand still at the Odza neighborhood in Yaoundé,with both teams impressive in a busy but barren game void of goals.
PWD Bamenda came into the game confident after picking up 4 points in their last 2 games in the center region knowing how important it was to protect their unbeaten start of the season against table topping Canon.
But disappointingly for the neutrals and fans of both teams the game which had forwards with 18 goals(PWD’s Dhobit Clovis on 4 goals, John Paul with 3 goals plus Canon’s Kunde Emmanuel Jnr on 5 goals and Brice Sindjo on 6 goals) to their name could not produce goals.
Both teams failed to score and PWD left Odza with a point and maintain their record as the only unbeaten elite club this season while Canon maintain her position table topping position.
3rd place Lion Blesse of Fortuni on a mission to go back to where they are coming from, punished Dynamo to a 2 nil defeat.
Another side of the story this match day is about Avion’s home form,the boys of Coach Ina Ngassa won their 4th in 4 home games this season. Captain
Georges Bikele’s mates have scored 10 and concede 1 goal in that process.just Dynamo has known the joy of a goal this season in Buea as a visitors.
PWD have kept 5 clean sheets this season.
The league’s leading scorers, Anaba Metogo of Lion Blesse, Brice Sindjo and Kunde Emmanuel of Canon,Dhobit Clovis failed to score in this match day only Aime Mangolo of Avion did his usual.
For Historic club Racing,Dynamo and Panthere it has been a slow start same to National polytechnic and Ngaoundere University.
Nevertheless Fascinating football season so far.
