Weekend Review 22/23 October

Pattaya 1-0 Sisaket
Bangkok Glass 1-2 Samut Songkhram 
Thai Port 3-2 Navy
TOT 0-4 Buriram PEA
Chiang Rai Utd 4-3 Chonburi

TOT remain one place above the relegation zone. Their last two home games in the past three days have seen them concede four goals in each match. It was a five star performance from Buriram PEA, and TOT have now lost six home games this season.
Thai Port ended their goal drought of almost 500 minutes with a 3-2 victory over Siam Navy. The victory was noticeable for the non-attendance of head coach, Thongchai Sukkokee. The Klong Toei side still haven't scored a home TPL goal under his tenureship.
Bangkok Glass's temporary stay at the Thephasadin Stadium was an unsuccessful one as lost 2-1 to Samut Songkhram. 

Division 1
RBAC 1-0 Songkla
PTT Rayong 0-1 JW Rangsit
BBCU 1-0 Chiang Mai
Buriram FC 5-1 Chantaburi
Suphanburi 2-1 Thai Honda
Customs 2-3 Chainat

The top 3 of Buriram, Chainat and BBCU all strengthened their positions with victories at the weekend. Closest challengers Songkla and PTT Rayong both lost. Incidentally, Buriram FC need only 6 points to book their place in the TPL next season. 
JW Rangsit bought themselves some daylight from the relegation zone with their second consecutive win. A late winner kept RBAC's survival hopes alive too. Bottom placed, Thai Honda, lost again as it appears time is running out for the Speed Kings.

Div 2 Champs League
(Group A) 
Loei 1-0 Kasetsart
Ratchaburi 2-0 Phitsanoluk
Pattalung 2-0 Phichit

(Group B)
Krabi 1-0 Roi Et
Lamphun 0-0 Rayong
Korat 2-1 Nth Bangkok

A second successive 1-0 defeat for Kasetsart, leaves them an uphill task to win promotion to Division 1. Ratchaburi and Pattalung cemented their positions at the top of the group with 2-0 victories.

North Bangkok lost 2-1 at Korat. The damage was done in the first half as The Horseman let Korat get their noses in front by conceding two goals. North Bangkok did rally in the second half, but couldn't repair the damage as they lost 2-1.  Lamphun and Rayong was a stalemate. Both sides have drawn their first two games 0-0. Krabi moved into second place with a 1-0 victory over Roi Et whom are surprisingly rooted to the bottom of the group at this stage. 

FA Cup Fixtures
Army Utd v Chonburi (Last 16)
Muangthong v Bangkok Glass (Last 32)

The last time both of these fixtures were played, they produced a grand total of 15 goals. Chonburi edged out Army Utd 4-3 in June while Muangthong destroyed Bangkok Glass 6-2 when they last met back in August. Both ties take place on Wednesday.


  1. Don't know why the font size is f*ed up in places. Tried to edit it without success.

  2. I'll stick my neck out early and say that Lamphun's goose is cooked. Their first two fixtures were both winnable home games and they've got Roiet away next.
    Korat are in a good position but I'm certainly not getting carried away. At the end of the day we've only won one on the pitch and that was scarcely deserved against a team that many regard as the weakest in the group. The game against Krabi this weekend is huge.

  3. I wouldn't like to pick the two winners from this group. It's going to go all the way until the final game. I fancy Roi Et to beat Lamphun next weekend. I can see your game and the Nth Bkk v Rayong being draws.

  4. I won't be particularly disappointed if that's the way the results go this weekend, but if we can win then we'll maybe need just nine points from the remaining six games.
