Thai Premier League Football 2012 Season
Pattaya United rebounded from a disappointing 2-0 loss at Insee Police FC last week to take down high-flying Esan United in Ubon Ratchathani at the weekend.
The only goal of the match came in the 82nd minute when Pattaya’s Russian midfielder Sergey Dyachenko struck with a beautiful curling shot from the edge of the penalty area that flew in off the Esan goalkeeper’s left hand post.

Pattaya had to withstand a virtual siege on their goal for the final 10 minutes of the match but they managed to hold out and take three very valuable points from, what on paper at least, appeared to be the harder of their two away fixtures last week.
With just 5 points now separating nine clubs in the mid-table standings it’s still all to play for and United face another ‘six-pointer’ this weekend when they take on TOT on Saturday at the Nongprue Stadium in Pattaya. Kick-off is at 6 p.m.
