Pattaya United’s relegation to League One for the 2014 season was confirmed last Sunday despite the Dolphins producing a battling display in a 2-1 away win at Police United. All three goals came in 5 minute period in the first half as Obinna Ajoku put the visitors 2 up before Murcy pulled one back for Police.
The win for Pattaya proved to be irrelevant however as elsewhere Samut Songkhram secured the point they needed in a 2-2 draw with Ratchaburi to condemn the Dolphins to second tier football next season.

In a bad week for the Pattaya outfit, the club was also fined 100,000 baht for the crowd disturbances at the end of their home match against Chaingrai United on Oct. 27.
