Naga out to strike down Boeung Ket at Olympic

Last week’s giantkillers Ministry of National Defence and Build Bright United will go at each other today but the key fixture in the Metfone C League schedule for the next two days will be tomorrow’s twilight clash between NagaWorld and Boeung Ket Angkor at the Olympic Stadium.

Army followed up their 3-0 upset of front runners Crown by fashioning the same scoreline against the tottering Kirivong Sok Sen Chey last Saturday and are keen on keeping the hunt for a place in the Super Four going.

Build Bright United, however, had to share the spoils and two goals with Cambodian Tiger FC last Sunday after their midweek storm had swept Boeung Ket Angkor aside.

In today’s other matches, Police will be up against Asia Europe under the lights at the Olympic Stadium after Cambodian Mines Action Center square off against Western Phnom Penh.

Five-time champions Crown will be hoping to boost their goal difference when they take on Kirivong Sok Sen Chey at the RSN Stadium tomorrow at the time NagaWorld and Boeung Ket will be locking horns.

Boeung Ket’s road trip to Svay Rieng did not go as well as coach Prak Sovanara would have liked but in the end Chan Vathanaka stepped in as a valuable substitute by turning an adverse 1-2 to a honourable 2-2 draw.

Lying fourth off the pace, NagaWorld, who drew with Police 1-1 three days ago, will be hoping to hold their ground as the fight intensifies for those vital places in the next phase.

Away at the Western Stadium, Cambodian Tiger FC, who are currently third in the Standings, will face Svay Rieng, who will be keen to climb up from the middle of the table.
