Looking ahead

With most teams having just 4 games to play in the regular season, before the top 4 placed sides then battle it out in the Super 4 play-off to decide the destination of the Metfone C-League championship, the juiciest encounter this weekend looks like the Phnom Penh Crown versus Kirivong match-up on Sunday. It pits the league's top two goalscorers Prince Justine (Crown) and Julius Ononiwu (Kirivong) against each other. The two marksmen are both Nigerian by birth, both hail from the same province and are good friends. But Kirivong need the victory if they are to have any chance of making the top 4 places come the season's end, whilst Crown are adamant that they will win the title this season. Something has to give. Sunday's other game sees Wat Phnom taking on relegation certainties Chhma Khmao at 4pm. Saturday's matches should go according to form. In the opening game leaders Naga are likely to inflict defeat on Khemara, whilst BBU should be too strong for an Army team that have been so disappointing over the last couple of months. The top 4 placed teams look certain to be Crown, Naga, Preah Khan and BBU unless Kirivong can upset the apple cart.
