FC Phuket vying for first road win on Sunday



PHUKET: Fresh from a 6-1 drubbing of Thai Honda, FC Phuket will try and claim their first road victory at Samut Prakan on Sunday.

Samut Prakan, sponsored by the Customs Department, go into the match in 14th place, with three wins, seven losses and one draw. They go into the match coming off a 1-0 road loss at Suphanburi.

Meanwhile, a ruling on the suspended Bangkok FC match that was stopped earlier this month is expected to follow a meeting of the Thai Premier League board today.

TPL chairman Dr Wichit Yambonruang is expected to go along with a recommendation by Bangkok FC that the last six minutes of play take place before the kickoff of the FC Phuket v Bangkok FC match to be held in Phuket on October 23.

How to deal with the last minute cancellation has proved problematic for the board as the existing rulebook does not state how to deal with such unexpected stoppages.

The TPL board is expected to adopt a policy whereby matches stopped in the first half of play will need to be replayed, while those stopped after the start of the second have will have the remainder of play made up at a later date.

FC Phuket has also announced the following revised schedule of home games for the remainder of 2011:

Saturday, May 14: Saraburi

Sunday, May 29: Buriram

Saturday, June 11: Chainat

Saturday, June 25: Songkhla

Sunday, July 10: Suphanburi

Saturday, September 10: Bangkok Utd

Sunday, September 25: PTT Rayong

Sunday, October 23: Bangkok FC

Sunday, November 6: Samut Prakan

Sunday, December 4: Chanthaburi

Sunday, December 18: Air Force Utd

Thanks to a number of strong home performances, FC Phuket currently sits in fourth place in the 18-team Division 1 of the Thai League.

The top three teams will be promoted to the Thai Premier League next season.
