Although it's likely to only be for a few days, Metfone C-League newbies Chhlam Samuth head the table after their midweek 3-1 victory over rock-bottom Rithysen at the Olympic Stadium this afternoon. On seven points from their three games, the former Navy team who got into the competition by virtue of a late-in-the-day play-off after Khemara folded, made short shift of fellow newcomers Rithysen from Kompong Chhnang with two goals from Meas Sophana and another from livewire Dauda Sanni (pictured) before a late Rithysen consolation through Peh Mathsaum. This coming weekend, the recently deposed leaders, Army take on Naga in the 1st match on Sunday, whilst Phnom Penh Crown face Prek Pra later the same day. Wins for both the Army and Crown will take them above the Sea Sharks. Sun Sovannrithy will be missing again from the Crown line-up with a knee ligament injury. The two matches on Saturday involve Preah Khan looking to do better against Kirivong, whilst the National Police, another new face on the block, meet BBU, who have started slowly after going great guns in the pre-season cup tournament.
