Weekend Review 21-22 April

Osotspa Saraburi 1-2 Wuachon Utd
BBCU 0-0 Chonburi
Isan Utd 1-1 Muangthong
Thai Port 1-0 TTM
BEC Tero 1-0 Samut Songkhram
TOT 3-1 Pattaya
Chainat 1-3 Police
Bangkok Glass 4-1 Chiang Rai Utd
Buriram Utd 1-1 Army Utd

Buriram United remain top despite dropping two points at home to Army United. Mattius Recio's second goal for Army cancelled out Teerathorn's first half opener as it finished 1-1 at the Thunder Castle.
Bangkok Glass swept aside Chiang Rai United 4-1 to move second and a Rangsan screamer was the match winner between BEC Tero and Samut Songkhram as the Fire Dragons made it a quartet of wins. 
Chonburi and Muangthong were held to disappointing draws at BBCU and Isan United respectively. If the pair of them are aiming to win the TPL, then these are games that they should be winning.
Wuachon's 2-1 at Osotspa moved them level on 9 points with their hosts. A couple of Aron da Silva first half goals helped the Fighting Bulls on their way. Chainat lost their first game of the season as they surrendered a first half lead to lose 3-1 at home to Police United.
An Olof Watson goal was the difference between Thai Port and TTM as the Klong Toei side moved off the foot of the table. Thai Port's first win was nervously collected as TTM had a couple of decent penalty claims turned away by the referee in the closing moments. TTM now hold the unwanted record of being the only winless team in the TPL as TOT ended their barren spell with a 3-1 victory over Pattaya United.

Division 1
Ratchaburi 1-1 Sriracha
FC Phuket 0-0 Suphanburi
Chantaburi 1-4 Khon Kaen
PTT Rayong 1-1 Raj Pracha
Siam Navy 2-2 Bangkok United
Krabi 1-0 Korat
Songkla 3-1 JW Rangsit
Pattalung 2-3 Bangkok FC
Air Force Utd 1-0 Saraburi

Sriracha earned a creditable draw at Ratchaburi as they held the league leaders to a 1-1 draw. Krabi moved into second as they beat a lackluster Korat 1-0 and Songkla are keeping tabs in third place after`they beat JW Rangsit 3-1.
Siam Navy and Bangkok United shared the spoils as did PTT Rayong and Raj Pracha. Suphanburi's much anticipated title bid is still to ignite as they drew 0-0 in Phuket.
Bangkok FC finally registered their first win of the season as they took the lead three times in Pattalung to eventually hold onto a 3-2 win, and Air Force also won for the first time as they edged out Saraburi 1-0 at the Thupathemi.
At the rock bottom, Chantaburi were humbled 4-1 on their own patch by Khon Kaen. With one point out of a possible 18 collected, it appears the Hares have already fallen asleep under the tree in the race to stay in Division 1.

Division 2 BKK
Samut Prakarn Utd 1-1 Kasem Bundit
Luk Isan 1-2 Globex
Prachinburi FC (Rayong United) 1-0 Rangsit FC
Chamchuri Utd 0-0 Bangkok Christian
Thai Honda 3-2 Customs Utd
R-BEC 4-0 Nontaburi
Assumption Thonburi 0-2 North Bangkok
Kasetsart 2-0 Central Lions
Krung Thonburi 1-0 Samut Sakhon

They Div 2 Bangkok leadership baton changed hands again this weekend as R-BEC seized control with a 4-0 victory over Nontaburi. Samut Sakhon slipped to second after a defeat at Krung Thonburi.
Prachinburi (Rayong Utd) and Thai Honda closely follow in third and fourth as only one point separates the top 4.
At the bottom, Nontaburi, Bangkok Christian and Assumption Thonburi have all been cut adrift as none of the hapless trio have won a match this season.
* The club formerly known as Prachinburi FC have officially changed their name to Rayong United. I shall refer to them by their new name from now on.
