Crown hoping that Cup runneth over after loss

Top tier clubs Phnom Penh Crown and NagaWorld travel out of town in differing moods to Kampot and Preah Vihear, respectively, in search of flattering scorelines against decidedly weaker provincial sides.

National Police, in the midst of a crisis of confidence after last Sunday’s 2-1 loss to NagaWorld in the league, a defeat that leaves them a point off the bottom, switch their thoughts to today’s more amenable Hun Sen Cup fixture against soft targets Siem Reap Angkor at the Olympic Stadium today.
