PKR grab 3rd
The 3rd and 4th place Metfone C-League Super 4 play-off was decided this afternoon at Olympic Stadium. Despite roadblocks by police keeping some of the fans away from the match, the players managed to get through the police cordon and Preah Khan Reach, even without the 3 players sent off at the weekend and sitting in the grandstand, grabbed the 3rd spot with a 4-2 victory over the National Police. It was a hat-trick from the under-utilised Joseph Olatubosun, his third coming in injury time, and another, from the penalty spot by David Njoku that clinched the win. Both goals for the Police came from who else, Nelson Oladiji, their top scorer. Saturday will see the championship decider between NagaCorp and Boeung Ket Rubber Field, kick-off 3.30pm at Olympic, while tomorrow, Phnom Penh Crown are due to meet the touring Khmer-Europe XI at Olympic, in a friendly encounter, also at 3.30pm.
