Weekend Preview 25/26 June

Army Utd v Chonburi
Muangthong Utd v Sisaket

There are only a couple of TPL games this weekend. The 2 games were postponed earlier in the season to allow Muangthong and Chonburi extra preparation time for their respective AFC Cup games.

Army and Chonburi will play each other on Saturday. A victory for the home side would see them jump up 4 places to 5th in the table. That would complete a very satisfactory first half of the season for last season's bottom placed TPL club.

Army United delved into the transfer market last week and unveiled the signing of two more Brazillians. It's unsure whether new boys, Yago Perreira and Klasli, will feature against Chonburi this weekend.

If Chonburi fail to beat Army Utd and if Muangthong can beat Sisaket on Sunday, that would move the Kirins up to 2nd place. They'd still be 8 points behind leaders Buriram PEA though.

Division 1
Air Force v Bangkok FC
Phuket v Songkla
JW Rangsit v PTT Rayong

This weekend's 3 games feature the 2 promoted teams from Bangkok Division 2 last year - Bangkok FC and JW Rangsit. Both sides goal at the start of the season would have been to avoid relegation. At this moment in time, the pair of them are on course to reach that target. Bangkok FC will fancy their chances of picking up at least a point at Air Force United and likewise JW would be looking for something out of their game at home to PTT Rayong.
The other game is between southern teams Phuket and Songkla.

Division 2 (Bangkok)
Thai Airways Luk Issan v Jamjuree
NSRU v Kasetsart
North Bangkok FC v Thai Fleet
Bangkok Christian v Globex
Prachinburi v SP Utd
M Rayong v Assumption Thonburi
Thanyaburi Asia Utd v Kasem Bundit
Nontaburi v Raj Vithi

The second division doesn't have the same mid season break that the TPL and Division 1 clubs supposedly have. The pick of this weekend's fixtures is Nontaburi v Raj Vithi. The Eka have lost 3 home games already this season and Raj Vithi will be eager to make it number 4. Second placed North Bkk face struggling Thai Fleet while third placed Kasetsart have a tricky trip up to Nakorn Sawan to face NSRU.
