Medeama coach Evans Adotey expresses delight at the return of prolific striker Jonathan Sowah for the upcoming CAF Champions League showdown against Yanga SC on Friday.
Sowah, who has netted six goals in 13 games this season, is set to start after serving a suspension, providing Medeama with added firepower in the attack.
His absence was notable in the previous match against CR Belouizdad, where Medeama struggled to create opportunities and secured a narrow win through a late header by Mamudu Kamaradin.
While Daniel Lomotey stepped up in Sowah’s absence and found the net, fans anticipate seeing Sowah and Lomotey partnering upfront to enhance the team’s attacking prowess.
Adotey expresses certainty about Sowah’s inclusion in the starting lineup, emphasizing the player’s proven abilities and the need to justify his place in the team. He states, “Jonathan Sowah missed our match against the Algerian due to a suspension that kept him out of the match. I’m 100% sure he will be in the start list against Yanga tomorrow. So, let’s hope Jonathan can deliver. While he will be replacing another colleague, he has to prove his worth and prove to the nation why he has to take his place in the starting list.”
With Medeama currently third in the group standings, Adotey sees Sowah’s return as a potential game-changer in their quest for a second straight win and a spot in the knockout stages. While trailing Al Ahly (6 points) and CR Belouizdad (3 points), a victory against Yanga SC could propel Medeama into a stronger position.
The match holds significance for both teams, with Medeama seeking to build on their momentum and Yanga SC eager to secure their first points in the competition.
