Weekend Review 16 - 18 September

Buriram PEA 2-1 Bangkok Glass
Navy 1-2 Pattaya
Army 1-1 Osotspa
TOT 1-0 Thai Port
Chiang Rai 1-3 BEC Tero
Sriracha 4-1 Khon Kaen
Sisaket 1-1 Police

Bangkok Glass put in a decent shift at Buriram PEA. It was certainly an improved performance on last week. Unfortunately for BG, they still left the I-Mobile Stadium pointless as they lost 2-1 to the league leaders.The Glass Rabbits have dropped down to 6th place with Sisaket and BEC Tero moving above them. Sisaket drew 1-1 with Police United while a second half brace from Zoran Rajovic helped BEC Tero score an impressive 3-1 win at Chiang Rai.
Army United took a first half lead through Leandro, but they were pegged back 15 minutes from time and were held to a 1-1 draw with Osotspa. TOT completed the double over Thai Port and moved out of the relegation zone in the process. The only goal of a dour game was scored with 12 minutes left on the clock. 

Division 1
Customs 1-0 Chantaburi
Bangkok FC 3-0 Air Force
Saraburi 1-1 Raj Pracha
Chiang Mai 1-2 Chainat
Thai Honda 0-2 Buriram FC
RBAC 3-2 JW Rangsit
PTT Rayong 1-0 Suphanburi
Songkla 0-1 Phuket
Bangkok Utd 1-1 BBCU

Bangkok FC halted their 6 game losing streak with a decent 3-0 win over Air Force. That win lifted Bangkok FC out of the relegation zone as JW Rangsit lost 3-2 at RBAC. Incidentally, that was Rattana Bundit's first home victory of the season. RBAC are still bottom of the league although they are only one point behind Thai Honda. The Speed Kings lost 2-0 at home to league toppers Buriram FC. BBCU sit three points off the top but more importantly 13 points in front off 4th placed Songkla. Zico stated that he wants to win the league title, but realistically they'll most likely have to settle for second place.

Division 2 (Bangkok)
Jamjuree 2-1 Samut Prakarn Utd
Nth Bangkok 5-0 Globex
Bkk Christian 2-1 NSRU
Raj Vithi 2-2 Kasem Bundit
Thai Fleet 1-2 Kasetsart
TA Luk Issan 1-1 Assumption Thonburi
Prachinburi 1-0 Thanyaburi Asia Utd
Nontaburi 0-1 Mapthaput Rayong

Kasetsart officially booked their place in the Division 2 playoffs with a 2-1 at Thai Fleet. They'll join Phitsaoluk, Roi Et, Loei City, Ratchaburi, Rayong FC, Krabi, Pattalung, plus 4 other teams in the 'Champions League' play off draw on 5th October.
In the race for second place, SPK Utd slipped up losing 2-1 at Jamjuree. North Bangkok took advantage and moved into 2nd with a comprehensive 5-0 mauling of Globex.

Toyota League Cup
Muangthong 0-0 Chonburi (2-3 agg)

A goalless draw wasn't good enough for Muangthong as they dropped out of the Toyota League Cup losing 3-2 on aggregate to Chonburi. The Sharks don't have much time to rest as they'll play Buriram PEA on Wednesday at the I-Mobile Stadium. It could be a tense atmosphere given what happened in Chonburi last month when the two sides clashed in the TPL.
