Phuket Faces Key Match Against Promotion Rivals: Big Crowd Likely

Phuket Faces Key Match Against Promotion Rivals: Big Crowd Likely

Friday, May 3, 2013
PHUKET: Coming off one defeat to a promotion rival, Phuket FC will need to perform at full potential tomorrow to avoid suffering two defeats straight.

They're coming up against Singh Tarua at home in Phuket City, with a large crowd expected to turn out at Surakhul Stadium.

Phuket FC in fifth position on 15 points after eight rounds this First Division season meet the team now holding fourth spot.

Airforce United, the team that last weekend inflicted Phuket's first defeat of the season, lies in third spot, with BBCU FC in second and PTT Rayong top.

Lose tomorrow and the Phuket Islanders will find it difficult to stick with the leaders. The top three teams all have four wins and four draws from eight matches.

Tomorrow's opponents are likely to be as keen as Phuket for a win, having five victories, one draw and two losses so far.

Phuket has recorded 4-3-1 so far, and with the backing of its huge Phuket fan base will be difficult to beat tomorrow night in Phuket City.

There's an added reason for Phuket fans to be there.

Phuket FC is donating 10 percent of ticket sales will be donated to the Royal Thai Navy's Nam Jai Thai Foundation for troops on duty in the deep South provinces.

Tickets are 100 baht for adults so, as the Phuket FC fan site says, ''for every ticket you buy, 10 Baht will go to our Heroes in the South who give up everything, and often their lives, for Thailand and the people.''

The game begins at 6.30pm Saturday.
