I'll be polite and say that the first half was a cagey affair as both sides were reminiscent of the pre-Wenger Arsenal approach of playing defensive football (younger readers ask your dad).
The first real effort on goal came after the hour mark as Peeratat missed a glorious chance at the back stick with a free header from a corner.
I've never been a great fan of zonal marking at corners and this was to be the Bulligans undoing. With two minutes left, a long corner found an unmarked Pipat beyond the same back post, and he volleyed home while umpteen home defenders were marking space inside the six yard box.
