Chances were hard to come by in a scrappy first half with United skipper Niweat Siriwong coming closest to scoring when his pile driver free-kick from the edge of the area smacked against the top of the Osotspa crossbar with the keeper well beaten

United pressed forward after the break but were unable to penetrate the stubborn visitors’ defence and were too often forced into taking pot shots from long range. Indeed Osotaspa were themselves unlucky not to snatch all three points when Suradej Thongchai saw his fierce shot rebound off the United post with just 5 minutes of the match remaining.
The draw sees United remain in seventh place in the league standings on 13 points from their opening nine fixtures. The Dolphins next match is on Sunday, May 20, away at Army United. Kick-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
