Metfone C-League newcomers Albirex Niigata grabbed their first points of a torrid start to Cambodia’s top tier with a 2-1 defeat of free-falling Western University at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday night.

Western wallow a point above the drop zone on five points, but have a game in hand over 11th-placed Kirivong Sok Sen Chey.
