Orn Chanpolin explained the importance of the Hun Sen Cup semi-final with Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng as the last chance for Phnom Penh Crown to win trophy this season.

The Red Singha’s Cambodian League title dream is out of reach as they sit in the sixth place in the league table with twenty points behind league leaders Preah khan Reach Svay Rieng, whom they face at the National Olympic Stadium this Thursday.

Unlike the previous stages, the Hun Sen Cup semi-final will be played on a one-legged formation on a neutral ground, with the winners of the match reaching the final, where they will face either Visakha or Boeung Ket.

Orn Chanpolin has urged his side to keep last week’s disappointing 3-2 defeat to Kirivong Sok Sen Chey aside and focus on this Thursday’s Hun Sen Cup semi-final tie with Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng.

The 21-year-old midfielder told ppcfc.com: “It will be a hard game for us because they are a team with good organization and have done really good in the Cambodian League and Hun Sen cup also.

“But everything depends on 90 minutes in the field. Whoever has good mental and endurance will win the game.

“Our team spirit and motivation are still the same. We try to forget the disappointment after a 3-2 defeat to Kirivong Sok Sen Chey in the league and keep focused on the Hun Sen Cup.

“We will organize our team spirit and motivate each other more. It is the last chance for this year, so it is very important for us to fight for this trophy.”
