Hun Sen Cup rookies face another goal glut

With inexperienced provincial sides being inundated by a flood of goals in the last two weeks of Hun Sen Cup action, there is unlikely to be any relief for the victims today, though some of them can draw comfort from the fact that their communities can welcome domestic football’s big boys to town for home games.

Kampong Cham-based Boeung Ket Youth, Kampong Thom and Prey Veng will play host to PKR Svay Rieng, Ministry of National Defence and Asia Europe United respectively in what is usually the only chance for the locals to see Metfone C-League sides up close. But they also will have to brace themselves for some high numbers on the scoreboard.

The Army’s impressive show of strength at the Svay Rieng Stadium last Saturday is an ominous sign for Kampong Thom.

The league leaders will clearly be looking at this game as an extended training session for the much more serious league business this weekend.

Having suffered a heavy home defeat to the Army, PKR will travel to the Boeung Ket Stadium to meet Boeung Ket Youth and be looking for a scoreline to keep them keen and sharp for the next league test ahead.

Fresh from their last Sunday’s league win over National Police, Cambodian Tiger FC should enjoy a profitable outing against visiting Sihanoukville Port, while a bouyant Boeung Ket Angkor are likely to be too hot for Stung Treng to handle.
