Intense emotions ran high on the field in Phuket's 2-2 draw tonight

Phuket FC Rescue 2-2 Draw But Promotion Dream Pops

Saturday, August 31, 2013
PHUKET: A comeback by Phuket FC may have placated fans who would have been uncomfortable tonight with their team being down 2-0 at halftime.

Ayuthaya FC is near the bottom of the Division One ladder and Phuket were playing at home in Phuket City.

Brazilian coach Teco could have been a trifle nervous at that point, given that Phuket fans have been known to show their unhappiness with coaches who can't deliver wins.

Some fans among the 3200 at Surakul Stadium left, fearing worse was to come.

By the end of the match, though, the local side had rectified the deficiency. The 2-2 scoreline probably seemed like a positive result to those who were there for the first half.

It was a lively match, with no shortage of physical confrontations. But by most peoples' calculations, the draw represented the ending of Phuket FC's chances of promotion.

Another season in Division One should bring fresh opportunities.

well these things often turn out for the best, we were going to get smashed every week in the TPL maybe now we will have time to produce a team that has a plan and we can build for the challenge next season. im disappointed but thats part of being a footy fan with our local teams here and abroad.
