Stalemate edges Phuket FC into fifth



PHUKET: The Islanders moved into fifth place of the 18-team Yamaha League One thanks to a goalless draw with second placed team, PTT Rayong on Saturday evening at Surakul Stadium, Phuket Town.

Actual play only lasted 40 minutes, as this was the conclusion to the game abandoned on June 9 due to rainstorms over Phuket forced the match officials to abandon the fixture five minutes into the second half (click here for article).

The single point was enough to edge Phuket into 5th place, now with 27 points, over a handful of teams, including Trat who are level on points though have a slightly inferior goal difference.

Also, in close contention are Korat, Nakhon Pathom United and BBCU – all who have 26 points – and Saraburi just one point further back.

Undefeated PTT Rayong remain in second with 38 points, trailing league leaders Air Force United, who have 43 points.

Phuket FC now hit the road to take on the league’s third place team, Bangkok FC (32 points) next Saturday (July 20) in a very crucial match at Chalermprakiet stadium in Bang Mod, Thonburi.

Meanwhile on Sunday, 13th placed Krabi (18 points) will host league leaders, Air Force United with kickoff set for 6pm.

Airforce United have lost only once in this campaign, surprisingly to lowly Khon Kaen who proved anything is possible.
