Armymen face Western shootout in league chase

Hun Sen Cup winners Ministry of National Defence will hit their home turf at the Old Stadium on Sunday hellbent on getting closer to Metfone C-League frontrunners Boeung Ket Angkor by taking all three points against table-trailing Western Phnom Penh.

Six points split the top two, with this held-over game shaping up as a must-win for the Army to make up ground on Boeung Ket. As the only team without a win, after seven defeats and four draws, Western will have to produce something out of the ordinary to trouble the Army outfit.

Sunday’s game is to kick off at 3.30pm and is the only league fixture this week as the Cambodian national team prepares for a friendly against Singapore next Thursday.
