It took them a while, but the Asian Football Confederation has realised the error of its ways and amended the kick off time of the crucial Asian Cup qualifier featuring Iran and Thailand as well as that between Jordan and Singapore.
The two games - which will determine which nation joins Iran from their group at next year's Asian Cup finals and will be held on March 3 - were due to be played at different times, with the Thais set to meet Iran in Tehran first.
That would have left Jordan and Singapore with an advantage over Bryan Robson's team, hence the request by Football Association of Thailand president Worawi Makudi for the AFC to abide by its own rules.
Only one point separates the teams in second, third and fourth in Group E with just one match remaining.
Now, at least, all three teams will go out looking to win.
