Brief: Crown spy on Thais

The manager and coach of reigning CPL champions Phnom Penh Crown travelled to Thailand over the weekend to spy on next Wednesday's Singapore Cup opponents Bangkok Glass. Manager Makara Be and head coach Apisit Im Amphai were conspicuously absent from the bench Sunday, when Crown pummeled Kirivong Sok Sen Chey 3-0. According to Crown assistant Coach Sam An, the duo were instead watching Bangkok Glass, currently third in the Thai Premier League (TPL), run over Provincial Electrical Authority FC 3-1 in Bangkok. Both are expected back today in preparation for Crown's fixture against Build Bright United on Saturday. Meanwhile, Cameroon-born striker Jean Roger Lappe Lappe, who has been loaned twice already this season to TPL side Samuth Songkram, is back with the CPL leaders, and is likely to feature in the weekend match.
