The weekend ahead
New C-League leaders Phnom Penh Crown take a breather this weekend and will lose out on the top spot if Naga can inflict more damage on the Army's recent form, which is in tatters with four straight defeats, after they began the season with such promise. It would've been the first opportunity for hard-man Om Thavrak to face his former club after his recent mid-season move, but with two bookings in his first two games for the Army, I think he'll be watching the game from the main stand. If the Army can re-discover some backbone the final result could be close. In the other game Saturday, Khemara need to show their mettle and put Chhma Khmao in their place or else they could find themselves getting dragged ever closer to the relegation drop zone. Sunday's big match-up is Kirivong against Preah Khan. Both teams are in good form and its the Chukwumeka v Laboravy contest, as the two in-form strikers battle it out for top-dog bragging rights in this game. The first match on Sunday is deposed leaders BBU facing Wat Phnom, with the students likely to win that one.
