Oladiji hits the dozen mark
Kirivong temporarily moved into fifth place in the Metfone C-League table tonight following their 3-0 midweek victory over Prek Pra Keila, stepping over the Army in the process. That man Nelson Oladiji (pictured) took his tally to 12 goals for the season with two more, though to be honest, if he scored half of the chances he gets he'd be well out in front of the race for the Golden Boot, whilst Ek Vannak got the other one, after his recent move from Naga. Prek Pra on the other hand, remain in the bottom two. I didn't attend the game so cannot comment on the behaviour of the Prek Pra fans after they let themselves down badly last Saturday. Kirivong have now had three successive Wednesday matches, and won 3 of their last four games. However, the juiciest games in the C-League are taking place this coming Saturday when the top four teams are paired against each other. The 2pm kick-off is Naga Corp against Preah Khan Reach, or 2nd v 3rd, whilst at 4pm league leaders Phnom Penh Crown meet the in-form 4th placed team, Build Bright United. It promises to be the best afternoon of football so far this season.
