A quick look at this weekend's Metfone C-League fixtures: leaders Phnom Penh Crown have the 2pm start time this afternoon against the National Police, who they beat 2-0 at the Old Stadium just over a month ago in a fiery encounter. The game will be shown live on TVK television. I expect Crown - who will be without injured speedy wingman Suong Virak - to extend their winning run to six matches, though the Police won't be a pushover by any means. In the 2nd game of the day, Preah Khan will want to recapture the third spot from the Army by beating Prek Pra, which they should do comfortably. Prek Pra had a brief upsurge a few games ago and need another one soon if they are to overtake Chhlam Samuth and escape relegation with just five games remaining. Sunday's matches will see an interesting tussle between BBU and Kirivong that could go either way, and then there's likely to be an avalanche of goals in the 2nd game, as bottom club Rithysen can bank on a spanking from Naga Corp and their hard-to-stop 17-goal hitman Julius Oiboh. I will miss the Sunday matches this weekend as I'm off to Kompong Tralach in Kompong Chhnang district to watch the Crown Academy boys take on two teams, at U13 and U15 level.
