Muangthong United Vs Pattaya United - preview
The last time we played Pattaya at home was something I've tried hard to forget and will not dwell on now. It's only possible for today's game to be a more exciting affair. Pattaya have not had a great season: the ground move to Chonburi (supposedly temporary though fans have expressed doubts) has reduced support and performances have been mixed, leaving Sin City's side in the lower half of the table. But last season's top scorer Ludo remains in the squad and the 'Dolphins' will not arrive at the Thunderdome to roll over and play dead.
Nattaporn and Panupong have both carried niggling injuries of late, leaving Zesh as the only fully fit defender. Siaka also has a strain though he may be risked. Buntao deputised well last Wednesday however and Pornsai's performance in his natural position will surely earn him another starting spot.
KO 1800 today @ Thunderdome. Report to follow.
MTU's next game will be away to Singburi in the TLC next Saturday.. This will be a 1600 kick off.
