Report from Pattaya

Tor Chitinnan's article on yesterday's game. Unfortunately he mistakes goalscorer Coulibly Abdoul for someone called "Adul Kuribali". I don't want to be too harsh on Tor again as I'm sure he's a nice guy and at least he publicises Thai footie but I do wonder how a professional sports journalist cannot report the name of a goalscorer for the nation's biggest football team.

League leaders Muang Thong United came from two goals behind to scrape a 2-2 draw against Pattaya United yesterday in the Thai Premier League. Former national star Niweat Siriwong gave Pattaya the lead in the 16th minute at Nong Prue stadium and Cameroonian Ludovick Takam added a second goal just before half-time.

Muang Thong came out attacking in the second half and were rewarded when Adul Kuribali scored with a superb header to make it 2-1. The defending champions continued to pile on the pressure and made it 2-2 in the 61st minute with a goal from Kone. Muang Thong pushed for the winner but Pattaya defended strongly to ensure a well-earned draw. That result comes hot on the heels of main rivals Chonburi's 1-1 draw with Navy on Saturday.
