Weekend Preview 21 - 22 January

TOT v Samut Songkhram (Sun)

It's been a bad week for Samut Songkhram on and off the field. Last Saturday they lost a valuable three points right at the death of their relegation battle as Navy snatched a late point. More bad news followed a couple of days later as their main sponsors, the SCG Cement Group, withdrew their investment in the club and switched allegiances to Muangthong United.
A win this weekend would ensure another year in the TPL for the Mae Klong side. Defeat though would leave them staring at 1st division football and the possibility of extinction. If TOT do secure three points on Saturday, it wouldn't clinch survival, but it would leave them going into the last game with their destiny in their own hands.
TOT and Samut Songkhram have both drawn their last two games. I wouldn't bet against this one finishing even too.

41st King's Cup (Results & Fixtures)
(Sunday 15)
Denmark XI 1-1 Norway XI
Thailand 1-3 South Korea U23's

(Wednesday 18)
Denmark XI 0-0 South Korea U23's
Thailand 0-1 Norway XI

(Saturday 21)
South Korea U23's v Norway XI
Thailand v Denmark XI

Winnie Schaefer's weary troops have endured a dreadful time in this tournament so far. In the first game, Thailand lost 3-1 to a youthful South Korea and then last night they were edged out by a second string Norway. On Saturday, Thailand have nothing but pride to play for as they face a Denmark XI side. The winners of South Korea and Norway in the earlier match up will win the 41st King's Cup. A draw in this game and a Denmark victory would leave three sides tied on 5 points.
