The game, played against Hatai FC, was the Andaman Dragon’s 13th of the 22 fixture season leaving them with just nine games to secure their place to reach the league’s play-off stage.
Going into yesterday’s game, Phuket sat at 6th in the 22-side table on 16 points, Hatyai meanwhile were just one place lower – 7th – on identical points but with a much greater goal difference, 1 and -9 respectively.
It was Hatyai who opened the scoring with a goal from their Thai forward Arnon Petchawat (28) early in the first half, but Phuket’s Nattapoom Maya (7) managed to bring the score level just before the half way mark.
But it was Seon, who was making his first appearance for the Andaman Dragon since signing from Chainat Hornbill FC at the beginning of the month, who earned Phuket their vital three points.
Seon, 32, has been in Thailand since 2013. He was born in Trinidad and made the Trinidad and Tobago squad in 2007, and has appeared in FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.
Sadly, Phuket’s win was not enough to take them higher in the league table, they still remain at 6th but now on 19 points. However, the loss meant that Hatyai dropped two places to ninth still on 16 points.
Next up for Phuket is another away game, this time against Yala United who currently sit two places above Phuket in 4th but only with only a single point more (20). The game is set to be played on Sunday (July 24) at the Baan Jaru Municiplaity Stadium with kick-off set for 4pm.
Phuket then return home on July 31 when they take on bottom of the table Nakhon Si Heritage.
