After a break for the Khmer New Year celebrations, the Metfone C-League kicks off again tomorrow, Wednesday at 3.30pm when the early season favourites, Phnom Penh Crown take on newboys and already twice-defeated Prek Pra Keila. As I said last week, judging by current form, we can expect a hatful of goals...from Crown. The pick of the 4 games this coming weekend are the fixtures that pair Khemara against Phnom Penh Crown (Saturday) and Preah Khan Reach against Naga, the latter being the tie of the week, on Sunday.
Wednesday Update: I can't make the game today as I've had severe stomach cramps all morning and caution is the key word, rather than spending a few hours at the Olympic Stadium with its less than rudimentary toilet facilities. Oh, and it looks like rain, which belted down for an hour yesterday lunchtime and flooded the whole city. I bumped into Prince Justine yesterday and he looks like he will be out of today's game with a thigh strain, which he felt go when scoring his unstoppable thunderbolt against Chhma Khmao a couple of weeks ago. It would be nice to hear that Prek Pra gave a good account of themselves but I fear a thumping is the most likely result, with Keo Sokngorn to net a hat-trick at least. This is the 15th game of the new C-League season and the first one that I've missed. Grrr.
