PKR get blasted out of 2013 Malaysian FA Cup

Preah Khan Reach were put to the sword in Penang on Friday in their first-round match of the 2013 Malaysian FA Cup.

Third-tier team PBA Pulau Pinang FC thumped the Cambodians 6-1 at the Stadium Bandaraya, with the scorer of PKR’s solitary goal not confirmed by any news service but quoted as either Moung Makara or Sok Chanraksmey by two officials from the Metfone C-League club.

PKR had beaten another Penang side, AUCMS, in their first-round clash of last year’s competition but were ousted in the last-16 stage by SPA FC.

The reigning Hun Sen Cup champions are back to defend their title at 4pm this afternoon at the Olympic Stadium in a do-or-die match against great rivals Phnom Penh Crown.

PKR need a win to advance to the knockout stage, while Crown require a draw.

Asia Europe University booked their place in the quarter-finals with a draw last Thursday, but will play Por Sen Chey district team at 4pm at Old Stadium to secure first place in the group.

Boeung Ket Rubber Field and Kirivong Sok Sen Chey are confirmed as Group C’s qualifiers, but will meet at 2pm at Olympic Stadium to vie for top spot.

The other match between Pailin and Svay Reang at 2pm at Old Stadium is a dead rubber.
