Police shoot to second after matching Crown

National Police Commissary emphatically carbon-copied league leaders Phnom Penh Crown’s exploits on Sunday with the day’s second successive 5-0 scoreline at Olympic Stadium.

Newly established Japanese franchise Albirex Niigata Phnom Penh held their own against the high-flying Police team until injury time of the first half, when goal machine Tith Dina opened the scoring.

A brace from Japanese import Tani Reijin in the space of five minutes shortly after the restart swung things firmly in the favour of the Police, with Tith Dina adding another in the 67th minute before substitute Ly Arifin put a gloss on proceedings with a goal three minutes after his introduction.

The result sees Police snuggle up behind Crown in second in the table, with both sides on 10 points from four games but Crown having scored two more and conceded one less. Albirex remain rooted to the bottom, without a point and with serious defensive concerns to address.
