Nigerian striker Bata had Crown on their knees with a hat trick within the first half an hour of the game for the reigning champions.

However, the league leaders battled back admirably, with Odion Obadin scoring before the break and Hong Pheng adding one after the restart while Khim Borey turned on the heroics with a stoppage time equaliser.

The draw saw Crown move three points clear of 2012 league winners Boeung Ket Rubber Field, as Svay Rieng jumped up two places into seventh.
