Ouk Sothy is hopeful that Phnom Penh Crown can end Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng’s unbeaten league run to snatch three away points. Phnom Penh Crown will take on league toppers Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng at the Svay Rieng Stadium as it is also their second away match this season. Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng occupy the top spot of the Metfone Cambodian League table with a perfect start to the new league season after grabbing nine points from their first three matches. The Svay Rieng-based club have yet to concede any league goal so far this season, but Phnom Penh Crown midfielder Ouk Sothy is hopeful that his side can break their defense as he believes that Leonardo Vitorino’s side have several quality strikers, who can do their job in this Sunday’s big match.
Eighth-placed Phnom Penh Crown have scored five goals and conceded six in their first three league matches, with Ouk Sothy pointing out that the Red Singha must strengthen their defense to deal with Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng’s quick counter attack.
Ouk Sothy told ppcfc.com: “We all are ready for the game and have also prepared well for the game against Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng.
“We have trained well and hard after the Khmer New Year break, so we have enough time to prepare this big game.
“They have not conceded any goal yet so far, and this means they have a strong defense. Their team preparation is also good.
“But we have good strikers, so we will do our best to score against them even though they have a very good defense.
“We must prepare our team defense well whenever we attack in order to deal with their counter attack as they have several good players who are quick in attack.
“It will be a very tough game for us as we play a very good team that tops the league table, but it is also a game we must win all three points from too.
“We all know that if we want to win the league title this season, we need to get good results, starting from the game against Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng.”
