Red-hot Boeung Ket get back to business

Tearaway leaders Boeung Ket Rubber Field got back to their familiar territory after a somewhat disappointing trip to Singapore where local side Tanjong Pagar United dealt them a 4-1 defeat in the opening round of the 2013 RHB Singapore Cup.

The defending Metfone C-League champions will be looking for their 11th straight domestic victory this season when they face one of the back-markers in Asia Europe University at the Olympic Stadium at 4pm today. On their current rousing form, Boeung Ket should go out as piping-hot favourites to stretch their lead by another three points to the dismay of the chasing pack.

Any other outcome would go down as the biggest shock of the season. Before this fixture, two physically well endowed sides in Ministry of National Defence and National Police Commissary fight it out in their crucial game at 2pm.

While MND will be anxious to clear out of the danger zone and put some distance between themselves and the two dreaded relegation spots, the Police, who take the field on the back of a tough win over AEU last week, will be equally eager to close the gap on the teams vying for the Super Four slots.
