In Saturday's pre-season friendly at RSN Stadium, Crown shaded the first-half and went closest through two Yeu Muslim efforts. Eight minutes after the break, Srin gave Naga the lead, sweeping his shot inside the near post. Sin Kakada posed a threat with his long-range shooting but couldn't find the target before Naga made the game safe on 77 minutes from the penalty spot. Virak was harshly adjudged to have been fouled by keeper Kung Chanvuthy and Borey netted from the spot. Borey was one of 9 ex-Crown players in visitor's colours. Mao Piseth blazed a good opportunity high and wide as the match fizzled out in Naga's favour.
