“Cameroonian side PWD Bamenda have requested through CAF a postponement of our Caf Champions League second leg preliminary match scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, December 4. (This is a) Developing story. Further updates will follow,” the Naturena-based side wrote on their official Twitter account.

Amakhosi have a one-goal advantage going into the second leg having beaten Bamenda 1-0 in Cameroon last weekend. Defender Erick Mathoho scored the important goal for Gavin Hunt’s side.
Hunt had admitted that while they have the lead, the job was not done yet as Bamenda had shown signs of having a fight in them and he expected them to come all out in their away leg.
“The most important thing is we scored the away goal. We can’t relax though, it’s like it’s only half time. We still have a whole game to play,” said Hunt.
“They have a good fight in their team. They are a strong and physical team. But hopefully we will have enough to try and make it a little easier and safer when we play in Johannesburg”.
