PHUKET: Fans were in seventh heaven with a 2-0 victory at last for Phuket FC last night in Phuket City over Nakhon Pathom United.
It gives new coach 'Teco' Cugurra Rodrigues a perfect record and at least a couple more weeks in which to convince Phuket's hard-nosed fans that he is the real deal.
Last night's entertaining match at Surakul stadium had the 2500 fans enthralled to see their team move well and show the form that could yet see them promoted from Division One.
The new coach - Phuket's seventh in two years - showed he takes the role seriously by concentrating hard on his task at hand.
It's expected that when Phuket wins promotion, a task he believes is still possible, he will for the first time smile broadly.
Until then, fans may have to make do with goal celebrations like the ones that came last night with when Tohgchai Kungkuntod scored after 44 minutes and Christian Alex Da Silva Santos followed up at the 78-minute mark.
