Globex FC 1 Nonthaburi FC 1
Nonthaburi came from behind to snatch a point against a Globlex side that were, in reality, there for the taking.
The first half was another case of “different game, same story” as Eka had more possession and more chances against the meekly supported home side but could not finish the openings. The absence of Sathit - who watched from the stands, presumably injured or suspended - was noticeable..
We were punished for those rued chances after the break when Globlex scored from a cross to produce the first decibel of sound from home fans. It looked to be a worst case scenario for Eka but the goal seemed to light a fuse and before long Korawut leveled with a close-range finish. For the rest of the game Eka looked more dangerous and a low cross from Ryan Reece was millimeters away from the foot of Korawut who could not have missed. Final score 1-1.
Man of the match: Ryan Reece who is finding more space and causing defenders more problems with every game. He also reads the game quickly and has excellent timing on overlaps.
One point from a possible six then, and that is probably the final nail in our promotion push. We can take heart from an improved overall performance in the last few weeks and we must still look to finish as strongly as possible. If we can hold the current squad together and get just two new signings that we really should have made in mid-season: a poacher and a big, hefty target man, then we can look to top the table next season.
(I've never seen the screaming girl at a game before and hopefully won't again)
