In Brief: 4 teams eye up second

PHNOM PENH - Today's double-header

of CPL games at Olympic Stadium should provide a shake-up in the league

table, with all four teams vying for second place. At 2pm, Kirivong Sok

Sen Chey - who currently occupy the runner-up spot - take on reigning

champions Phnom Penh Crown in what should be a top showcase of talent.

Crown can draw level with Kirivong on points with a win and will

leapfrog the Takeo-based team if they can net more than two in

difference. On the other hand, Kirivong can reduce the gap to 3 points

on league leaders Preah Khan Reach with a victory. At 4pm, Khemara

Keila face Naga Corp in what should be a closely fought contest. Either

team could find themselves in second place entering the last round

before the mid-season break providing they win and Kirivong lose.
