Weekend Review 12-13 May

BEC Tero 3-0 Bangkok Glass
Samut Songkhram 2-3 Chainat
Police Utd 1-1 BBCU
Chiang Rai Utd 2-1 Isan Utd
Pattaya Utd 0-0 Osotspa
Muangthong 2-1 Army Utd
Chonburi 1-0 Wuachon Utd

Muangthong United came from behind to beat Army United 2-1 in an exciting match.  Bjorn Lindemann's first goal for Army shortly after the break put them in the lead but a Piyaphon strike minutes later and a Teerasil header from a rebound off the bar ensured the three points went to the Nonthaburi side.
The Fire Dragons are currently the hottest team in the league after their 3-0 victory over BG made it six wins on the trot. Cleiton Silva bagged a hat-trick as BEC leapfrogged Bangkok Glass into second place.
Narul of Chonburi earned himself the title of "supersub" with his late strike winning the game seconds after he entered the action.  That 1-0 win maintained Chonburi's 100% winning home record in all competitions this season.
At the bottom, Chainat, TOT and Chiang Rai United all enjoyed wins to move into lower mid-table. Chainat beat Samut Songkhram 3-2, scoring a couple of spectacular goals in the process, to cement the SCG's old boys to the bottom of the league. Rumours this morning indicate that Samut Songkram coach Worawan might find himself out of a job earlier than his proposed departure date of July 12. Chiang Rai won a bad tempered contest against Isan Utd 2-1 and Diego Walsh netted his fourth goal in as many games as TOT earned their second consecutive 1-0 success. A few people have stated that TOT were a one man team last season and that Kone Mohammed kept them up singled handed. I've always believed that Diego Walsh was key to TOT's survival after his arrival in the mid-season transfer window last year.
Leandro's return to his old stomping ground saw the Brazilian notch a goal in the first couple of minutes. His early goal was cancelled out in the second period when BBCU equalized via a dubious penalty decision.
In Nong Prue, the mid-table battle between Pattaya and Osotspa ended 0-0.

Division 1
Korat 0-0 JW Rangsit
Bangkok Utd 3-1 Songkla

Saraburi 5-2 Chantaburi
Pattalung 1-1 FC Phuket
Air Force 1-2 Ratchaburi
Bangkok FC 4-1 Raj Pracha
Sriracha 1-1 Siam Navy

It's so tight at the top with only three points separating the top 5. Ratchaburi lead the pack on goal difference after beating Air Force 2-1 with the winning goal coming from ex-Air Force favorite, Pornchai. Krabi dropped to second after the were beaten at Suphanburi. Jorrin John's second half goal ensured that the Suphanblood moved into the promotion places for the first time this term. Sriracha's keeper saw red as his side surrendered a 1-0 lead against Siam Navy to fall to fourth while Bangkok United continued their decent form with a comfortable 3-1 home win over Songkla.
Lee Tuck scored a hat-trick against Raj Pracha as the Iron Bulls climbed into the top half of the table. The English hitman is now the leading scorer in the first division.
