Fowler's Record: P2 W2
Congratulations to a student of mine who correctly predicted the score and the first goalscorer. This report from www.bangkokpost.com
Robbie Fowler grabbed his first goal for Muang Thong United yesterday as they beat Chiang Rai United 4-1 in the Thailand Premier League at the Yamaha stadium.

The Liverpool FC legend had yet to get off the mark in almost three months of service for Muang Thong but he finally showed his old killer instincts are still intact to help close the gap on league leaders Buriram PEA to six points.
Fowler looked bright and sharp throughout the contest and gave the Kirins a 1-0 first half lead with an unmarked header.
Ten minutes after the interval, Christian Kouakou doubled the lead from close range as Muang Thong began to take control. They remained the better side and converted a further chance through Dagno Siaka with 10 minutes to go before Chiang Rai United grabbed one back thanks to Edvaldo Pereira.
He was initially fouled in the penalty area but saw his penalty saved by Kawin Thammasatchanan but the Kirins keeper could do nothing as Edvaldo swept in the rebound.
However, Muang Thong were not finished there as Dagno then claimed his second of the game to cap off an impressive afternoon.
