Ahead of playoff, Crown aware of complacency

Ahead of playoff, Crown aware of complacency

Phnom Penh Crown coach Sam Schweingruber has warned his players against complacency in today’s semi-final playoff second leg against Cambodian Tiger at Western Stadium at 3.30pm after his side’s 4-1 victory in the first leg on Sunday.

With the likes of Shane Booysen, Keo Sokpheng and Bisan George in form, and the Crown defence not giving much away, it seems unlikely the Tigers can overcome the three-goal deficit.

As the Post reported yesterday, the other playoff second leg between Boeung Ket Angkor and NagaWorld, with Naga leading 3-1, has been put back until Tuesday to give the side greater latitude to prepare for their opening game on Sunday in the Toyota Mekong Club Championships in the Laos capital, Vientiane.
