BBU chase second place league finish

Build Bright United wind up their Metfone C-League campaign this afternoon against hot and cold Khemara Keila. The University-backed side confirmed their place in the Super 4 playoffs last week and will look for victory to maintain their charge for a second-place league finish and accompanying 34 million riels (US$8,115) cash prize ahead of rivals Phnom Penh Crown and Preah Khan Reach, who play each other Saturday.

BBU currently share second spot with Crown, a point ahead of PKR.

Khemara, meanwhile, can only leapfrog National Defence Ministry into sixth place with a win today, which would grant them 2 million riels more in prize money if the Army team fail to beat Chhma Khmao Sunday in their last fixture.

With 14 goals to his name, BBU’s top scorer Nuth Sinoun is nine behind Julius Ononiwu of Kirivong Sok Sen Chey in the race for the Golden Boot, and will have potentially two more games from the playoffs to claw back the deficit.
