PHUKET: FC Phuket coach Surachai Jirasirichote has expressed confidence that his team can pick up its first road win of the season at PTT Rayong tonight in a football match that will reportedly be televised live on the Internet.
Coach Surachai said he thought his players stood a good chance of winning at Rayong because Phuket is well aware of the opposition’s weak points.
Despite sitting eighth in the 18-team bracket, Rayong have yet to win a home match, though they have recorded two wins on the road – including a 2-1 win at Suphanburi on Wednesday.
FC Phuket should be well rested because their mid-week home fixture against Songkhla had to be canceled due to the flooding.
However they will be without play-maker Sarach Yooyen, who is serving a penalty suspension.
In yesterday’s Division 1 matches, Buriram won 3-1 at Samut Prakarn to move into a two-way tie for first place with BBCU, who could only manage a 1-1 draw at Songklha. RBAC’s winless streak runs to eight following a 1-0 home loss to Rajpracha.
