Kanu makes debut in Northampton Town win over Salford City

New loan signing Idris Kanu made his Northampton Town League Two debut in a 1-0 win over Salford City on Saturday.

Paul Lewis scored the only goal for the promotion hopefuls side after they returned to winning ways with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Salford.

As a result, the host stayed fifth in the League Two standings on 45 points from 25 games played. 

Debutant Kanu went close early in the second half before Smith had Salford’s best chance of the game from a free-kick, but again he was thwarted by Roberts.

Kanu replaced Chanka Zimba in the starting line-up, with Eppiah named on the bench.

Jon Brady was pleased with the performance of his team as he reflected on Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Salford City.

“It’s nice to get back to winning ways,” he said.

“I feel it’s three and a half good performances in a row and we played some really strong football in the first half.”

Equatorial Guinea to face Senegal in Afcon quarter-final

Equatorial Guinea will face a tricky African Cup of Nations quarterfinal test against Senegal to be played at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo, Yaoundé, on Sunday.

They needed penalties to beat Mali by 6-5 after a goalless draw in extra time to reach the quarterfinals as they set a date with Senegal.

It’s their third time in as many participations while Mali failed to imitate what they did in Cameroon 50 years ago when they reached the final in 1972.

Their opponent Senegal roared into the quarterfinals defeating Cape Verde Cape 2-0 at the Stade Omnisports de Bafoussam in a round of 16 matches on Tuesday.

Goals from Sadio Mane and Bamba Dieng’s sealed the victory for Aliou Cisse’s men as two Cape Verde players receive a red card.

Meanwhile, debutants Gambia will take on hosts in Cameroon in an unprecedented quarterfinal that promises a lot of excitement on Saturday at the Japoma Stadium, Douala, in Douala.

The Scorpions challenge the Indomitable Lions for the quarterfinal clash of the ongoing TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon 2021.

Hosts and five-time champions Cameroon may seem like favourites, but they have to face an emerging force in continental football, The Gambia.
