PT Prachuap coach Sasom Pobprasert was left to rue a last-gasp equaliser the Killer Wasps conceded to settle for a 1-1 draw at Nakhon Pathom United in a Thai League 1 clash on Tuesday night.

PT Prachuap looked all set to pocket three points from the away game after Chatchai Sangdao gave them the upper hand in the 17th minute, but the visitors had other plans.

Nakhon Pathom levelled the score with only two minutes remaining in the match when Nigerian striker Gafar Durosinmi struck to ensure a point for the home team.

It was the second straight draw for the Killer Wasps since the resumption of the league after a month-long break last week.

Sasom admitted after the match that Nakhon Pathom did a good job in defence.

"We got off well and went ahead in the 17th minute," said Sasom.

"We had several chances to score more goals, but Nakhon Pathom defenders were up to the task tonight.

"Our defence also thwarted many moves by Nakhon Pathom in the second half, but we were made to pay a heavy price for a brief lapse in concentration in the last couple of minutes."

PT Prachuap remained pinned to the foot of the Thai League 1 table with their tally showing only 12 points from 17 matches.

In another top-flight game on Tuesday night, hosts Ratchaburi managed to claim three points after a 1-0 victory over Khon Kaen United despite being reduced to 10 men on the pitch.

Mateus Lima scored the winning goal in the 56th minute, but Ratchaburi lost Faiq Bolkiah in added time when the Bruneian picked up his second yellow card of the match.
