Two second half goals from Chanatip Songkrasin were the difference between the sides as BEC Tero won the downtown Bangkok derby 2-0.
The first goal credited to Chanatip on 69 minutes was debatable as his shot took a wicked deflection off Mario Cesar to beat the wrong footed Wanlop in the Thai Port goal. There was no doubting who scored the second as Chanatip raced from his own half in injury time to score Tero's second with barely a challenge from a Port defender.
Before the goals it had been a fairly uneventful contest with the closest to a goal coming shortly after the interval when Wanlop had to make a point blank block with his foot from Korakod.
Pisan in the BEC goal had a quiet afternoon as Thai Port's 4-5-1 formation never threatened despite the fact that Tero's backline looked slightly shaky at times. BEC Tero will be happy with the result even though they weren't at their best. The Fire Dragons have now won five in a row and sit proudly in 3rd place. Next weekend they face unbeaten Bangkok Glass in a testing match at the Thephasadin Stadium.
