Prek Pra look for liftoff

Preah Khan Reach’s Khoun Laboravy vies with Prek Pra Keila captain Khin Voeurn during their Hun Sen Cup quarterfinal.

Prek Pra Keila will attempt to put an end to their goal drought against Preah Khan Reach in today’s Metfone C-League match.
The Muslim-community backed side have taken only a single point from five games so far this season, conceding 13 goals to no reply. Perhaps a change of venue will help break their duck with the tie playing at 3pm at Phnom Penh’s Old Stadium due to preparations for the upcoming AFC President’s Cup. It will be the first time since 2008 that top tier game shave been played away from Olympic Stadium.

Prek Pra forwards Mat Hasan, Feut Sulkiply and Jamiv Adebayo have been woeful in front of the sticks, and it appears high time Nigerian coach Jack Tonye Charles made the decision to field You Arafat and Sos Hanafi in their place. Skipper Khin Voeurn and Ly Vika remain key figures in their defence.

PKR have also fared poorly in the opening stages of the season, having grabbed just a single victory in the campaign so far.

They will, however, play with confidence against the team which they eliminated in quarterfinal of the Hun Sen Cup on their way to lifting the trophy. In the 5-1 victory over Prek Pra, Khuon Laboravy scored a hat trick, with Tum Saray and Phanny I Rotha adding one a piece. Mat Hasan grabbed the consolation goal.

PKR coach Rith Dika lauded the performance by striker Tum Saray who scored twice in their 3-1 defeat of National Police Comissary last Sunday. “Now we know how to use him in the right position,” said the coach.

Tum Saray and Khoun Laboravy have netted four times each but have work to do to catch up with Nigerian hitmen Nelson Olajidi of Kirivong Sok Sen Chey and Julius Oiboh from Naga Corp who are both on seven.
