Reigning Metfone C-League champions Svay Rieng take on table toppers Phnom Penh Crown at the Olympic Stadium from 3:30pm today.
Last year’s league winners are currently wallowing in ninth place but can catapult themselves into fifth with a victory over their esteemed rivals.
Svay Rieng coach Sam Vandeth told the Post: “I don’t think we can beat Crown in this game, but we will try to make things very hard for them.
"Striker Dzarma Bata is a doubt through injury for the holders, while midfielder Chhoun Veasna is out due to his red card in Mongolia during their AFC President’s Cup qualifier on May 3.
Crown, bolstered by the addition of Australian star Adriano Pellegrini, will look to continue the sterling form that had them thrash AEU 9-1 over the weekend.
