Friendly Fire: Port FC 3-0 Air Force


Port strolled to a comfortable win over over a totally earthbound Air Force in last night’s friendly at the PAT, with goals from Terens (28), Aathit (29) and Chakrit (9). It was a fairly uneventful game in which Port’s second string took on an Air Force side who clearly weren’t interested in anything more than a gentle workout.

So what did we – and Jadet – learn from the game?

  • Port B player Chanayut (99) seems unaffected by taking Tana’s old number, and the 18-year old looked right at home with the big boys, putting in an assured performance up front (and even having a goal disallowed). Definitely worth a place on the bench in future
  • Likewise Chakrit (9), a close season signing from the Swatcats who has only had a couple of minutes of first-team action so far – he was busy, popping up all over the pitch, and his all-action style could make him a fan favourite
  • Terens deserves more game time. The wee fella clearly revelled in getting a full 90 minutes last night, and his goal was celebrated most enthusiastically by the home crowd. Let’s hope we see him in the cups
  • Aathit may have scored, but he also looked a long way from the kind of striking quality you need to win cups and finish in the top 3. He certainly puts in the effort, but his first touch leaves a lot to be desired
  • Port need a backup left-back, as Panpanpong (19) once again showed why Port were so keen to sign Kevin
