One win separates half of league sides

WEEKEND fixtures from round five of the Cambodian Premier League (CPL) at Olympic Stadium will hopefully give the table a clearer picture with the top half currently separated by just two points.

Saturday's first match up sees National Defence Ministry (MND) take on Spark FC, who have yet to suffer a loss in the CPL. Watch out for the strikers of both teams -  Khim Borey for MND who bagged a brace last week and Justine Prince, Spark's Nigerian goal machine who will be looking to extend his record of over a goal a game.

In Saturday's other tie, league leaders Kirivong Sok Sen Chey will try to humble a Build Bright United side who are coming off a famous 3-2 victory over reigning champions Phnom Penh Crown.

Naga Corp will hope to jump start their season with a competant drubbing of CPL whipping boys Phouchung Neak Sunday while Preah Khan Reach will vie to consolidate their position at the summit with a win over struggling side Post Tel Club.
