Pattaya United slipped to another Thai Premier League defeat last Saturday at home to TOT at the Nongprue Stadium in Pattaya.  The loss was the ‘Dolphins’ eighth consecutive reversal since their only win of the campaign so far, which came on the opening day of the season

The only goal of the game came in the 89th minute when TOT midfielder Panomkorn Saisorn fired in an unstoppable shot from the edge of the United area to secure all three points for his team and lift them into sixth place in the standings.  Pattaya United’s next match is on Sunday, May 12, away at Suphanburi.
