Police jump Naga

National Police go back to the top, on goal difference
Back on top of the Metfone C-League table due to a better goal difference, the National Police team had to play the final twenty minutes of their Sunday clash with the military men from the Army without their rock-solid skipper and centre-half Say Piseth. Dismissed by referee Chuob Visal for a 2nd bookable offence, Piseth's absence nevertheless spurred his team into a late revival after a pretty mundane encounter. The league's top scorer Nelson Oladiji went close with a couple of efforts for Police but to no avail as the game petered out into a goal-less draw. Other than that, there wasn't much to say about the game. Police jumped back over NagaCorp to head the premier division placings. There's one more game, this Wednesday when Chhlam Samuth play Kirivong, before the C-League takes a break for the Khmer New Year festivities and resumes again on Saturday 21 April. Scheduled for that day are Boeung Ket v Army and Phnom Penh Crown against BBU.
