Amakhosi were initially set to host the match on Friday at FNB Stadium at 18:00.

However, due to logistical challenges experienced by the Cameroonian outfit, CAF granted their request to have the fixture postponed by 24 hours.

The issues have again resulted in a further postponement as kick-off has now been shifted by another hour to 19:00 on Saturday.

“After careful consideration, the Match Commissioner has moved the match kick-off to 19:00 this evening,” read a statement from Amakhosi.

“This is to allow PWD Bamenda to fulfill all the pre-match processes. In the spirit of Fair Play.”

Gavin Hunt’s side hold a vital 1-0 advantage after Eric Mathoho’s away goal in the first-leg clash Limbe last Sunday.

The winner of the tie will face Angolan giants Primeiro de Agosto for a place in the 2020/21 group stage of Africa’s elite club competition.
