MTU will be forced to make several changes to the squad for tonight's game with Army FC. Kawin Thamasatchanan is suspended after his red card against Osotspa, some players will be rested and others will be rested today for their game with the national team tomorrow. It seems the powers that be won that battle of wills.
We can expect to see the likes of Phanphipat(GK) Narongchai (AM), Nawapol (DF/MD), Bhuntao (MD) and Rungsiyo (ST) given a chance. All of them are hungry and capable players. Wonder boy Coulibly Abdoul (DM) and Ibrahim (FW) also return to contention after being ineligible for AFC competition.
I also should mention that Datsakorn's yellow card against Al-Itthiad means he will be suspended for the next leg. This is a real blow because with the slender lead we have, Datsakorn's thunderbolt free kicks would be one of our best chances of extending that lead when our backs are against the wall in the big Syrian stadium.
