Naga out for happy returns from Siem Reap

Fresh from their 2-0 win over defending champions Boeung Ket, Metfone C-League leaders NagaWorld will hit the road to Siem Reap on Saturday in a positive frame of mind for their away fixture with Soltilo Angkor at the Svay Thom Stadium.

With the finish line fast approaching and the margins slender, with just two points separating them from rivals Boeung Ket in second, Naga coach Meas Channa will be demanding nothing less than three points from his players.

The team under most pressure Saturday could well be third-placedVisakha, who sit just one poinr behind Naga and two behind Boeung Ket but run into a robust and unpredictable Ministry of National Defense at Old Stadium.

To make the contest even more enthralling, Army, six points behind Visakha, need a win to keep on the heels of the top three, while Visakha need them to stay in the title hunt.

With last outing defeats nagging them both, Police and Crown fight it out at the Olympic Stadium.

Boeung Ket continue to be without the services of Cambodia star Chan Vathanaka, who is nursing a knee injury.

Boeung Ket travel all the way to Svay Rieng to play the home side which is fighting its own demons and has long run out of league contention. After surrendering the lead to Naga last week, Boeung Ket will be keen to close in on the casino backed side.

In other matches, bottom teams, Electricite du Cambodge and Western Phnom Penh meet in a match of mere academic interest, while Angkor Tiger could prove tough rivals for the visiting Asia Europe United.
