FC Phuket 2 – 2 Samut Prakan



PHUKET: FC Phuket pulled back from down two-nil to salvage a point on the road at Samut Prakan in the Thai League’s Division 1 yesterday.

The Southern Sea Kirin appeared to be on yet another hard-luck road trip when Samut Prakan’s Lee Tuck scored early in the second half and then set up teammate Weerasak Kiatsoong-nern put his side up 2-0 at 59 minutes.

Tuck, the only Englishman playing in Division 1, was later named man of the match.

But FC Phuket fought back with a beautiful goal into the top-right corner by Nitirote Sukuma at 67 minutes.

The equalizer came at 72 minutes, when Samut Prakan defender Surapon Phromriboon pulled down FC Phuket’s Kone Adama in the penalty area and sure-footed Nene Bi converted the ensuing penalty kick.
