PHOUCHUNG NEAK continued their woeful start to the season with another defeat Wednesday at the hands of Spark FC. The navy team have yet to earn a single point from the first four rounds of the Cambodian Premier League and look to be on a course for relegation after they stumbled to a lame 1-0 loss to Spark FC.

In contrast, Spark have lightened up the league after gaining promotion and remain the only CPL side unbeaten. Their Nigerian striker Justine Prince is fast emerging as the league's hottest talent, with his goal after six minutes proving decisive Wednesday. His tally now stands at an impressive five goals from four games, one ahead of Cambodians Keo Sokngorn of Phnom Penh Crown and Khuonla Boravy of Preah Khan Reach.
