Wednesday 13 June - Review

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

Muangthong United moved nine points clear at the top as they came from behind to beat Police United 3-1. Buriram's 1-1 draw at home to Pattaya now means that the Thunder Castle can only draw level on points with Muangthong if they win their four games in hand. The results last night now have the scales tipping slightly in the favor of the Nontaburi side.

Supporters of BEC Tero and Chonburi might beg to differ that it's a two horse title race as they both enjoyed decent wins. Tero won 3-2 at Osotspa while Chonburi won their umpteenth home game of the season beating Chiang Rai United 2-1.

Unfortunately BG"s early season promise has fizzled out as they went down 1-0 to a Tana goal. The win for Esan would have helped to erase some of the pain they felt after their 4-0 thumping at university side Kasetsart last Saturday.

Thai Port were the only side in the bottom 5 to pick up any points as they won 3-1 at BBCU. The result wasn't enough to lift the Port Lions out of the drop zone, but it did move them level on points with the Big Bang and above Samut Songkhram who lost 1-0 at Army. TTM remain cut adrift at the foot of the table as they predictably lost at Wuachon. 

Lee Dong Wong's 86 minute goal looked to have given Chainat a victory at TOT, but his goal was cancelled out two minutes later by Witchan as the points were shared.

The majority of TPL sides now take a break until the 7th of next month although there are a sprinkling of Buriram United make-up games scheduled between now and then. Whether or not they go ahead remains to be seen as Thailand's youngsters are involved in the AFC U-22 qualifiers.

Division 1
Chantaburi 0-7 Bangkok FC
Siam Navy 2-0 FC Phuket
Raj Pracha 3-0 Sriracha
Korat 1-0 Suphanburi
PTT Rayong 0-0 Air Force Utd
Krabi 1-0 Ratchaburi

Ratchaburi finally surrendered their unbeaten run as they lost 1-0 at Krabi with the only goal of the game being scored by Ekkaphan. It wasn't all doom and gloom for the Dragons though as close promotion rivals Suphanburi lost at Korat 1-0, Sriracha were surprisingly humbled 3-0 at Raj Pracha and PTT Rayong were held to a stalemate by Air Force.
At the bottom it appears that Chantaburi have already thrown in the towel as they lost 7-0 at home to Bangkok FC with Samerpak being credited with four of the Bulligan's goals. Siam Navy's 2-0 win over Phuket moved them into the top half of the league.
