Tough luck on Crown

Action from today's draw in Tajikistan
Holy crapola. Phnom Penh Crown got the draw we least wanted for the group stage of the finals of the AFC President's Cup. It took an email to the Tajikistan FA to find out the draw, which they made a few hours ago at a plush hotel in the Tajik capital of Dushanbe. Not only did we pair up with the two toughest teams left in the final stage, namely Dordoi (two times winners and six times finalists of the President's Cup) but we get to play the host team, Istiklol in the final match of the group stage, which could well be the decider to see who goes through to the cup final two days later.
The Group A matches will take place in Dushanbe as follows:
Mon 24 Sept Dordoi v Istiklol - 4pm
Wed 26 Sept PPCFC v Dordoi - 7pm
Fri 28 Sept Istiklol v PPCFC - 7pm
Sun 30 Sept AFC President's Cup Final - 7pm.
In Group B of the draw, Chinese Taipei's Taiwan Power, the current holders after they defeated Phnom Penh Crown 3-2 in last season's final, will meet Al-Ammari from Palestine and Khan Research Laboratories from Pakistan.
