Samuel Danquah rescued a point for Bangkok FC against Songkla as the Bulligans doubled their points tally for the season.
Kaneung Buransook gave the visitors the lead on 16 minutes when he tapped in after Malek's low shot off the post had rebounded to him. It had been a sluggish start to the game and Songkla's goal was the first piece of noteworthy action.
In the second half Solomom Okutu and Santisap Sari were whiskers away with headers as the Iron Bulls pressed for an equalizer.
The Bang Mot side's persistence was rewarded on 76 minutes when Danquah netted after a scramble in the box from a Lee Tuck corner.
A point each was a fair reflection on the 90 minutes and the Bulligans will be happy to have moved off the foot of the table.
Bangkok FC have potential to play better than this and I feel that they just need something to kick start their season. Once that happens they should be able to move up the league table. Songkla were well organized and robust defensively but they look like the don't have that creative spark to maintain a genuine promotion push.
