Phnom Penh Crown were left disappointed after they were beaten 1-0 by Soltilo Angkor at the Siem Reap Stadium last week despite their great dominance of the match that made them tough to accept the result after they failed to take the chances they created.
Following last week’s frustration, Sum Vanna is working hard to improve Phnom Penh Crown’s attack, with the Red Singha putting finish as their top priority in the agenda of their training ahead of the visit of Kirivong Soksen Chey at the Smart RSN Stadium this Sunday.
Sum Vanna has a big concern as Phnom Penh Crown’s training sessions have been affected by heavy rain for several days in a row, so he has to switch the training sessions from afternoon to morning.
Kirivong Soksen Chey stunned everyone as they put Ministry of National Defense to the sword with a brilliant performance that secured them a massive 4-1 win that is their third victory of the season after eight Metfone Cambodian League matches.
Sum Vanna, therefore, regards Kirivong Soksen Chey as a tough side to play against through their defense and quick counter attack that will give Phnom Penh Crown a tough test in this Sunday’s league encounter.
Sum Vanna told ppcfc.com: “We played very well against Soltilo Angkor, but we had some problems with our finish that cost us the game. During this week, we have been training very hard especially in our attack as we need to improve our finish and also team work.
“Our team preparation for this week is not quite good due to the weather issue as there is so much rain in the afternoon, so we need to change some of our training sessions from afternoon to morning.
“Kirivong Soksen Chey is not a normal team, definitely not. They are a good team. They have a good preparation for the league, and their players are playing with high spirit. They also have an experienced foreign coach. They have good tactic in their defense and counter attack, and their set play is also dangerous.
“Paulo Victor is a very good striker, who usually scores in both home and away games for us, but we also have some talented young players. They can also help to improve our team attack.”
