Four sides shoot for Super 4 playoff spots

The race for the two remaining berths in the Super 4 playoffs goes down to the wire this weekend in the final round of Metfone C-League fixtures of the 2013 regular season.

Svay Rieng, Naga Corp, Kirivong Sok Sen Chey and Build Bright United are all with a shout at a spot in the post-season, which kicks off the following weekend.

Svay Rieng, formerly Preah Khan Reach, who have won the Hun Sen Cup twice but have never tasted league success, have arguably the easiest task as they require just a point from their match tomorrow against already relegated Asia Europe University. The tie will be played at Old Stadium from 3pm.

Over at Olympic Stadium at 4pm, Kirivong will go all out in their game against Phnom Penh Crown, who booked their playoff place last week, with all three points needed to give the Takeo team a chance of a top four finish.

Tomorrow’s other match at 2pm at Olympic Stadium is a dead rubber between National Police and bottom club Senate Secretariat. While Senate will seek to add to their meager two points from the campaign, Police will attempt to consolidate their seventh position.

With a Cambodian People’s Party rally taking over Olympic Stadium on Sunday, the two concluding fixtures will now be played on Monday. Naga Corp face league leaders and reigning champions Boeung Ket Rubber Field at 2pm, before BBU clash with Ministry of National Defence at 4pm.

Two-time former winners Naga would beat both Kirivong and BBU to a Super 4 spot with a win on Monday as they currently stand a point above both of them, with Svay Rieng a further two ahead.
