Bangkok FC 3-0 Air Force United

Bangkok United ended their 6 game losing streak with a well earned 3-0 triumph over Air Force United. The victory lifts Bangkok FC out of the relegation zone, although the respite may be only temporary as a victory for JW Rangsit tomorrow would drop the Iron Bulls back into the bottom 4.

The Bulligans (that's what it says on the fans' shirts) started with Lee Tuck upfront. The Englishman looked hungry and he forced a couple of early efforts on goal.

On the half hour, the home side had their best attempt of the half. A cross from the right from Samuel Danquah landed at the feet of Ekkapoj in the box. His shot from inside the penalty area was gamely blocked by Air Force keeper, Devala Gorrick.

The same attacking combination weren't going to be denied as they created the first goal of the game shortly after the break. Gorrick produced a great reflex save from Danquah's shot, but unfortunately for the big American, the first half sub, Ekkapoj, got to the block swiftly and tapped it into the empty net.
Nice haircuts

The closest Air Force came to equalising was a shot after a good run from Michael Dixon that flew inches over.

On 78 minutes the game was effectively over when Bangkok doubled their lead from a low powerful shot by Sattha.

Devala Gorrick had no chance with the second goal, and the same could be said for the third as the impressive Danquah's shot from inside the box put the icing on the cake with a minute left on the clock.

Air Force might feel that the 3-0 was slightly harsh on them. At half-time, it was difficult to predict a winner. The disappointing aspect of this match for Air Force would be the failure to lift their game once they went behind. The seemed to submissively accept defeat.

The Bang Mot side on the other hand will be very encouraged with this performance and result. Next week, they have a difficult match at home to Chainat.

Final Score


  1. Did Tirer play for BFC? How did he do?

  2. If he wasn't a 6ft plus farang, I probably wouldn't have noticed him. He played centre midfield, but was subbed with the score at 1-0.

  3. Your first sentence neatly suammarises his time at Korat. 'Languid' would be generous.
