Weekend Review 16-17 June

TTM 0-2 Buriram Utd

First half goals from Achaempong and Ekkachai helped Buriram United ease to a 2-0 victory over TTM. The result preserved Buriram's perfect away record and moved them into second place above BEC Tero. Incidentally the pair will meet at the Thephasadin on Wednesday evening as they both bid to catch up on leaders Muangthong United.
As for TTM, only 2,246 spectators turned up to witness the tobacco monopoly's sixth successive blank at home. At this moment in time, I can only envisage one outcome for them at the end of the season.

Division 1
Bangkok Utd 2-0 Khon Kaen
FC Phuket 2-1 Bangkok FC
Songkla 0-0 Pattalung

Two goals from Romain Gasmi helped Bangkok United beat Khon Kaen 2-0. A torrential downpour at kick off meant the game was delayed for roughly 30 minutes. The first goal was certainly attributed to the weather conditions as Piyawat in the Khon Kaen goal let a cross from Gasmi slip from his grasp into his own net. He wasn't particularly clever for the second either as he clumsily charged into Sompong, allowing Gasmi to convert the resultant spot kick. That win cemented the Angels into second position two points behind Ratchaburi.
FC Phuket won only their second game of the season beating Bangkok FC 2-1. The win didn't lift them out of the relegation zone, but it did bring them to within touching distance of safety. Pattalung's 0-0 draw at Songkla was good enough to move them into the refuge zone although they could fall back into the bottom five on Wednesday evening if Air Force get a point from their match with Krabi.

Div 2 (BKK)
Luk Esan 0-1 Chamchuri Utd
R-BEC 5-0 Central Lions
Assumption Thonburi 1-0 Rayong Utd
Samut Prakarn Utd 0-1 Samut Sakhon
Kasem Bundit 2-1 Customs Utd
Globex 0-2 Bangkok Christian
Thai Honda 2-2 Krung Thonburi
North Bangkok 2-3 Rangsit FC
Nonthaburi 1-4 Kasetsart

The shock of the weekend had to be leaders Rayong United's loss to lowly Assumption Thonburi. That defeat left the league leadership up for grabs and Samut Sakhon duly accepted it as they edged out Samut Prakarn Utd 1-0.
Kasetsart are in the play off places for the first time this season after they won 4-1 at Nonthaburi. Thai Honda dropped to fourth after they were unexpectedly held to a 2-2 draw by Krung Thonburi.
R-BEC finally rediscovered their early season winning ways as they tamed the Central Lions 5-0 and Chamchuri enjoyed an away success at Luk Esan winning 1-0 despite finishing the rain soaked contest with only 9 players.
