Phuket fight back for 3 points

FOOTBALL: Phuket FC came back twice from being a goal down to seal their 5th win of the 2016 AIS Southern Region 2 season, a win which a number of players insinuated was for Coach Odd who resigned as head coach late Friday night (Aug 5).

Players posted photos on their Facebook pages of the team celebrating their win after Sunday night’s (Aug 7) game from the changing room along with the message “For You”.

The resignation of Pittaya “Odd” as coach of the club on Friday was confirmed in a post on the official Phuket FC Facebook page (Phuket FC 2016) on Saturday morning (Aug 6), the message read: Breaking News: Phuket FC Coach Odd Pitaya Pimanman and his assistant Coach Jew Niwat Nuisanga officially resigned from being the coaches for Phuket FC yesterday August 5.

They said the reason for their resignation is because they can no longer continue their job the way they had expected, and that Phuket FC had appointed Coach Noi to over see the team for the next coming match with Trang FC on Sunday August 7 until they have new coach.

Thank you for Coach Odd and Coach Jew for giving the best for Phuket FC. (See story here.)

Although not elaborating on the exact reason for the quote “because they can no longer continue their job the way they had expected,” it is possible that outside influences could be to blame, as in past seasons previous coaches have been “forced out” of their position by said outside influences of the club.

Sunday’s game, the 16th of the season, was against Trang FC, who were, at the time, sat at 4th in the 12-side table on 25 points, while Phuket were at 7th on 20 points.

It was Trang who opened the scoring in the 23rd minute with a goal from Theerasak Kunaraksa (30). But their lead was short-lived, as Phuket’s Sukree Etae (13) pulled the level score just minutes later.

But the 1-1 score was also short-lived as just as little as five minutes later Trang took the lead again with a goal from Anirut Kunaraksa.

The score remained at 1-2 when the teams went in at half-time.

It was end-to-end action when the teams took to the park for the 2nd 45, and a third of the way through Phuket’s new Danish Striker Marcus Lassen, playing in his first game for the club, brought the scores level once again.

Phuket really piled on the pressure after squaring the game at 2-2. And the pressure paid off just before the full 90 minutes were up when Janawat Areewanasuk took the score to 3-2.

With four minutes of time added to the official 90 minutes Trang gave it their all to get the score level, but they were not able to get the equaliser they so wanted.

The result moved Phuket up to to 6th place in table on 23 points, while Trang dropped down a place to 5th still on 25 points.

There are now just five games left to play in the 2016 season with two of those being home games at Surakul Stadium.

The first is this coming Saturday (Aug 13) against Ranong United, the final one being on Wednesday Aug 24 against Nara United.

However, on Aug 20 the team travel to Suratthani FC, and on Aug 28 to neighbouring Phangnga FC, both which are the most local away games of the season and should attract a larger away following.

Kick-off for Saturday’s game is scheduled for 7pm with entrance set at B50 for adults and free for kids who present a student ID card.
