The win lifts Phuket FC to fifth place in the Thai first division, a step up from sixth place and with still a game to conclude against PTT Rayong - the score stands on nil-all and the last 40 minutes of the match will be played in July. 

Phuket next play in the league at home next Saturday, June 29, against 5th placed Nakhon Ratchasima FC, who slipped from fifth when they lost 1-nil to PTT on Saturday. Phuket FC could reach the third place promotion berth with just a couple more wins, but the gap to catch the top two has been growing. 

In other Yamaha League One/Thai Division One games this weekend, Air Force’s 16 game unbeaten start to the season finally came to an end when they lost 2-0 at Khon Kaen.

Matias Recio’s 9th and 10th goals of the season shortly before the break won it for the T-Rex.

The only side left unbeaten in the first division are PTT Rayong who edged out Nakhon Ratchasima 1-0.

Sriracha raced into an early 2-0 lead over Trat, but they were then on the receiving end of five goals as Trat hit back to win 5-2.

The Blue Marlins are now firmly in big trouble down the bottom of the table.

BBCU and Saraburi’s 0-0 draw barely merits a mention while Phuket’s 1-0 win at Rayong United moved them up to 5th place.
