Next up - Sisaket FC
Well it looks like my Sisaket fan interview will not get back to me in time, so let's just take a brief look at the 'Dangerous Koupreys':
Sisaket are spending their first season in the TPL. Last season they finished second in Division One. They didn't make a huge amount of improvements in the long close season except a last minute change in strip colour at the request of the club sponsor. That change did not sit well with fans, especially as the new colour was pink.
Management predicted Sisaket would take about 'ten thousand' fans to away games this season. Although they are well short of that average, travelling support has indeed been high. It seems unsure if those numbers are given the same kind of 'encouragement' as fans of fellow Isaan team, PEA Buriram.
Sisaket are well promoted and their club shop is as well stocked as that of Muangthong.
Muangthong defeated Sisaket 2-1 in the opening day of the 2010 TPL. The club have continued to struggle but their most recent result was a one-nil victory away to fellow strugglers, Bangkok United.
Who to watch:
Like Buriram, Sisaket have a total of three Brazilian players in the squad, including striker Valci Junior.
Did you know?
Sisaket's new strip is so hideous that many fans have simply stuck with the traditional orange club colour in defiance.
Despite Sisaket's recent win, the Quilins should be too strong for them providing we shake off last week's poor showing.
