Singh Tarua maintained their promotion drive to the TPL with a 4-1 victory over Sriracha.
The first half was fairly subdued until Umpai was harshly penalised when a cross from Kroekrit appeared to strike his chest. The referee pointed to the spot and Leandro sent Hassachai the wrong way to open the scoring.
An inswinging free kick from Kiatjaroen found its way into the back of the net in the 58th minute. The fact that both Kiatjaroen and Todsapol ran away to celebrate suggests that it was one for the dubious goals panel. The official TPL site credited the goal Kiatjaroen.
A section of the Khlong Toei Army thought that was game over, but Tanet gave the Blue Marlins hope two minutes later when his low free kick crashed through the Tarua wall and past the the weak hand from Watchara in the hosts goal.
Sriracha rarely threatened to level as two late goals sealed the win for Singh Tarua.
Ali Diarra finished of a Kroekrit cross from the left and Narongrit completed the scoring after Leandro had set him up.
A bemused Diego Pishinin was given a second yellow card in injury time as Sriracha finished the match with ten men.
Singh Tarua weren't quite in full flow, but they'll have gratefully excepted the 4-1 scoreline. They'll have also been pleased to have closed the gap on PTT Rayong and Air Force after both were held to draws. They may be slightly perturbed though that Bangkok FC scored a late winner to win 2-1 for the second successive week.
The 4-1 loss for Sriracha dropped them into the bottom 4, and on this performance, it's hard to see them getting out of their current predicament.
