Saturday 14th January - Review

Navy 1-1 Samut Songkhram
Sisaket 1-2 TTM Phichit

A 95th minute goal from Olof Watson salvaged a valuable point for Siam Navy. The 3 points from this relegation encounter looked to be heading back to Mae Klong as Efe Obode's close range goal had given SCG a 73rd minute lead. The late eqaulizer means both sides move onto 33 points while TOT sit 2 points behind them on 31. Next week TOT face Samut Songkhram in another crucial relegation battle.
Sisaket must be relieved to finally finish this season. Their 13th placed finish is an improvement on 2010 but many at the club will see that as a disappointment after a promising start to the campaign. The 2-1 home defeat to TTM Phichit left Sisaket ending their campaign on a 12 match winless streak. For TTM it was another mid-table finish.

Division 1
Suphanburi 2-0 Raj Pracha
Chainat 3-0 FC Phuket
Air Force 0-1 BBCU
Buriram FC P-P JW Rangsit (26 Jan)
Chantaburi 6-1 RBAC
Saraburi 2-1 Bangkok Utd
Customs 2-2 Songkla
Thai Honda 0-2 PTT Rayong
Bangkok FC 2-2 Chiang Mai

There was no last day drama in Division 1. With all bar one of the promotion and relegation issues already decided prior to the last round of fixtures, the only games with any significance were at Chantaburi and Customs. Chantaburi needed a win to stay up and they achieved that in style as they dispatched a depleted RBAC 6-1. Labi and Rattaporn both grabbed hat-tricks as Chantaburi confirmed their first division status on the last day for the second consecutive season. The Forza stadium witnessed its last Division 1 fixture for the time being as Customs were held to a 2-2 draw by Songkla. The Lat Krabang side will join Thai Honda and RBAC in Bangkok's 2nd division next season.
Elsewhere Chainat were too strong for Phuket as they beat the troubled side 3-0. Chainat finished the game with 9 men after two reds were quickly issued midway through the second half. BBCU edged out Air Force 1-0, Bangkok FC were twice pegged back by Chiang Mai and Bangkok United's disappointing season ended as they conceded an injury time goal to lose 2-1 at Saraburi
