Despite falling behind in just the third minute of the match, United fought back strongly, with the visitors’ goals coming courtesy of a hat-trick from on-loan Lebanese striker Soony Saad.

United had to play the entire second half with only 10 men after Antonio Pina, who had just returned from injury, was shown a red card in the 44th minute of the match.

Earlier in the week, United’s Brazilian star Junior Negrao scored 2 minutes from time to rescue a valuable point in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Army FC at the Nongprue Stadium in Pattaya.

United currently lie in twelfth position in the Thai Premier League with 29 points from 24 matches completed.  The Dolphins next league fixture is on Sunday, July 31 at home to Chainat FC.  Kick-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
