Bangkok FC 3-4 Suphanburi

The Bulligan faithful watched their side concede an injury time goal as Suphanburi claimed a 4-3 victory in an enthralling match in Bang Mot.

Suphanburi could have scored in the first minute, but Englishman, Jorrin John, pulled his shot just wide of the goal. That chance was to set the tone in what proved to be an end-to-end match.

It was however the other Englishman wearing number 9, who opened the scoring. A low free-kick from the right by Josef Tirer was knocked into the net by Lee Tuck.

After the goal, Bangkok had more possession although both teams had chances to score. A few minutes before half time, Suphanburi leveled when a free kick from the right was powered in by central defender, Roland Djam, as he lost his marker too easily.

The Suphanburi Warriors came out fighting in the second half and looked the more likely team. Their pressure was rewarded when another cross from the right was headed in by big striker, Bolarimwa Ayotomiwa on 57 minutes.

The game lulled for a while after this as Suphanburi players seemed to fall down at will injured. Surprisingly, the angriest man in the stadium was Suphanburi coach, Rene Desaeyere. He was shouting at the stretcher boys every time they went onto the pitch to treat one of his players. I guess the Belgian didn't want his side reduced to 10 men while his player received treatment at the side of the pitch.

The game came back into life when Bangkok were awarded a penalty on 75 minutes as Suphanbauri keeper, Bernard Kouassi, felled Lee Tuck. Ekkasit tucked the resultant spot kick in the bottom left corner despite the keeper getting close to it.

Three minutes later, the Bulligans were celebrating when Samuel Danquah lobbed Bernard Kouassi. There were strong suspicions of offside though as Danquah collected the through ball.

A minute later, Suphanburi were level as the two Bangkok central defenders and the goalkeeper were indecisive and Ayotomiwa nipped into level.

The drama wasn't over as yet another crossed ball from the right in injury time was nodded in by Brazilian, Mario Neto to give the Warriors a late winner.

The loss was harsh on Bangkok as they probably deserved at least a point for their endeavor. They will look back on the game and will rue the sloppy defending that cost them some goals.
