Nonthaburi stumbled to a goaless draw against a distinctly average-looking Fleet side that were surely there for the taking in a lackluster game at Wat Boat that was painfully short on memorable incidents.
As usual this season, Eka had more of the ball but still desperately lacked a poacher to capitalise on so much possession. In many earlier games the skill of crowd favourite Prasop and Sathit have seen us through, but in this game both players were suspended, exacerbating the attacking problems .
The one incident that stays in memory was when a ball looped up high in the sky and dropped down right onto the head of a poor ball-boy. Hope he's OK now.
It's a shame that we haven't addressed the lack of poacher problem in mid-season but full credit to all the players who work hard up to the final whistle. We have to hope that Prasop and Sathit can return and score us enough goals to make the play-offs and no doubt the fans will stay right behind the team all the way through.
