Phuket FC fail to impress against Nakhon Si Heritage

After the Andaman Dragon’s coach Pittaya “Odd” Phimarnman last week described their performance against Yala United as one of the best of the season so far, despite losing the game 4-3 after being 1-3 up, Phuket’s fans were hoping to see a similar performance on home turf, and with Nakhon only taking four points from four draws so far this season many were sure the team would seal a victory and walk away with three points.

However, that wasn’t to be the case, in fact, it was totally the opposite and Phuket put in what was by far the worst performance of the season.

And as is usual with Phuket’s fans after such a dismal display, they were, as is customary, calling for the sacking of Coach Odd.

Yes, the performance was dire, but to pinpoint the blame on just one person is a little unjust as there are far more people involved in the team than Coach Odd himself, he is now assisted by two other coaches, and there were also some 20 players on the team sheet who could also have been blamed.

The reaction of the fans was just a reminder of seasons past where coaches have been changed two or three times, usually resulting in the team fighting for relegation, and is certainly not the direction Phuket need to be heading mid-way through the season.

There really was very little action to report in the game and neither goalkeeper was really tested at either end of the pitch. But that changed with 20 minutes left of the game when Nakhon Si Heritage’s number 36 was given a straight red card after committing a "last man" foul. The resulting free kick of which was put narrowly over the bar.

However, the red card did make Phuket up their game a little and they certainly put the visitors under a lot more pressure than at any other time of the game. But unfortunately, despite Nakhon being down to 10 mean, the hosts were still unable to find what they needed to give them a win.

Luckily for Phuket other games played at the weekend mostly went their way do they managed to keep their place at 7th in the 12-side table. However, with Nara United and Suratthani FC both getting wins they are now 10 points adrift of the top spot with seven games remaining.

Phuket now travel to Phatthalung on Wednesday (Aug 3) where they will take on Phatthalung FC who currently sit at 10th in the league table on 14 points. They then return home for a weekend game against Trang FC to be held on Sunday (Aug 7) at Surakul Stadium.
