The first error made by Shota Wada was to palm the ball out for a corner as it was harmlessly sailing out for a goal kick. The resultant corner from Sirisak was flicked in by the head of Suriyakan at the near post to give the Wild Horses the lead on 18 minutes.
Seven minutes later, a corner delivery from the same player was flapped at by Shota and Walther Henri gladly fired home to double the lead.
In all honesty, there wasn't much between the two sides in the first half. The closest TTM came to scoring was a dipping 30 yard free kick from Joo Jin Hak that hit the bar on the stroke of half time.
The second half never really got going despite TTM making a double substitution at the break. Sohna's spectacular overhead kick from 25 yards was the highlight of the early stages of the second period. The fact that it went out for a throw in shows how little there was to report.
Joo Jin Hak was TTM's best offensive player and his low drive fizzed narrowly past the post with 13 minutes left.
Rayong FC held out somewhat comfortably for a 2-0 win to lift themselves to within two points from safety. On watching this today, I'd be very surprised if both of these sides are in Division 1 next season. TTM have a couple of decent players, but the majority of them wouldn't stand out in the regional league. Rayong are a well organized unit with limited ability at this level, yet they could stay up if they added a couple of quality players in the forthcoming transfer window.
