Crown’s Sun Sovannrithy jumps out of a challenge with MND’s Chhin Chhoeun during their last Metfone C-League match.

Following the abandonment of Sunday’s Metfone C-League match between Naga Corp and Chhlam Samuth due to torrential rains, the fixture will be replayed at Olympic Stadium at 2pm today.

The Julius Oiboh goal and the Om Thavrak dismissal have been wiped from Naga’s slate, and the objectives for both sides remain the same.

Second-placed Naga will try not to lose sight of league leaders Phnom Penh Crown, and the Sea Sharks will again be out to thrash their way out of the maelstrom of the relegation zone.

Today’s other match, which has been pushed back to 4pm, pits Ministry of National Defence against historic rivals Phnom Penh Crown.

Army team strikers Phoung Soksana, Phlong Chanthou and midfielder Chhin Chhoeun have been in fine form of late, and will look to avenge a 1-0 defeat by Crown during the first half of the season.

Crown striker Kouch Sokumpheak is a key component of the reigning champions’ new line-up this year, and it was the national team pin-up who scored the decider in their previous encounter.

Crown head coach David Booth, of England, hopes to extend the team’s winning streak under his leadership to seven.

However, defender Tieng Tiny and winger Suong Virak are unlikely to start because of injuries.

Crown’s Japanese midfielder Takahito Ota is a competent provider, while MND have the younger Oum Kumpheak as playmaker.
