Army take aim at shooting down Svay Rieng

Stung by the loss to defending champions Phnom Penh Crown just before the Khmer New Year break, Ministry of National Defence will be mounting an all-out offensive to reach the top of the table when they travel to the Svay Rieng Stadium to face frontrunners Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng in a key Metfone C League clash today.

While Crown were bringing the Armymen’s four-game winning streak and their brief stay at the top of the table to an end with a narrow 2-1 win, the Svay Rieng giants demolished Western Phnom Penh 3-1 to grab top spot.

Both teams used provincial sides for shooting practice in the Hun Sen Cup. The Army smashed an incredible 21 goals past Stung Treng, while Svay Rieng were comparatively compassionate towards Sihanoukville Port, hitting the net 11 times after a first half blank.

Saturday’s standout clash at the RSN Stadium is Crown hosting Boeung Ket Angkor, in what promises to be a high intensity contest where no quarter is likely to be asked or given.

At Olympic Stadium, CMAC United may have a tough time dealing with NagaWorld, who will be keen to improve on their goal scoring, something that has in the league recently been far below the standards coach Meas Channa expects.

While Asia Europe United and Western Phnom Penh will be keen to improve on their league positions in their clash on Sunday, anxiety levels may well be high in the Police camp when they line up against Cambodian Tiger FC in the evening encounter.

The Police sharing six goals with provincial side Svay Rieng on Wednesday will have hardly been a confidence inspiring result as the team gears up to tackle a much better equipped outfit in the Tigers. The Police wil be looking at this fixture as a good opportunity to make amends.
