Phnom Penh Crown were beaten 1-0 by Chiang Rai United in the 2020 Leo Pre-season Cup few days ago with the absence of several players due to injury and illness, and they will play another friendly match against Chiang Rai City this afternoon at 3.30.

Paulo Victor and Mao Piseth picked up ankle injuries during a narrow defeat to the Champions of Thailand, while Kok Boris and Brak Thiva hadn’t travelled with the team due to injury and illness.

The Brazilian striker sustained an ankle injury and was forced off in the second half during the Red Singha’s loss against Chiang Rai United. Mao Piseth picked up an ankle injury on his left foot after he tried to block a low cross from the Chiang Rai United striker. The club’s doctor is assessing their injury, but the duration of the attacking duo’s injury has not been revealed yet.

Shinbone issue and illness had resisted Kok Boris and Brak Thiva from joining the team in the 2020 Leo Pre-season Cup in Thailand. The center-back picked up a shinbone issue during a 2-1 defeat against Malaysian side Kedah FA in the Smart RSN Stadium Cup. The duo are expected to join the team training early next month ahead of the 2020 Metfone Cambodian League.
