Toyota League Cup Preview - Round 1

The big boys enter the Toyota League Cup this weekend. It's difficult to write a preview for this round as it's not easy to predict how each team will approach the competition. Some might play their best 11 players whereas others might want to try-out fringe and youth players.

The ties will be one leg only. In each match up, the lower ranked team will play at home. The organisers should be applauded for this decision as it will make the ties more interesting and competitive. Also we won't see any pointless second leg matches similar to last season's competition. There were several occasions last year when the higher ranked team had run out convincing winners in the first leg leaving the second legs dead and buried.

Below are the pick of the cup ties involving Bangkok teams this weekend:

Bangkok United v TOT (4pm)
Ayuttaya v Thai Port (4pm)
Thanyaburi Asia United v Phuket (4pm)
Singburi v Muangthong (4pm)
Globex v JW Rangsit (4pm)
Roi Et Utd v Army Utd (5.30pm)
Jamjuree v BEC Tero (6pm)
Phrae v Bangkok Glass (6pm)

Kasem Bundit v Buriram FC (4pm)
Kasetsart v Osotspa Saraburi (4pm)
