Iron Bulls Spared 7 Minute Match
Bangkok FC of Division 1, were awarded a 5-2 win and 3 points after their proposed 7 minute match with FC Phuket was scrapped last night.

The original match in April was abandoned after 83 minutes because a torrential downpour made the pitch unplayable. Bangkok FC were leading 5-2 at this point.

Instead of letting the result stand and awarding the homeside 3 points, the chiefs of Division 1 decided to replay the match from the 83rd minute onwards. This meant that FC Phuket would have to travel all the way up from Phuket to play the last 7 minutes of a game, which was more or less dead and buried for them.

However, it was announced last night that Phuket wouldn't contest the last 7 minutes. If FC Phuket couldn't be arsed with it, then why did they leave it until the last minute to cancel it!!

The win gives the Iron Bulls a bit of breathing space as they move 4 points above the drop zone.
