Weekend Review 30 March - 1 April

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

This weekend in the TPL produced plenty of late drama with a flurry of red cards thrown into the mix. Buriram United lead the way on 9 points with a 100% record from their first three games after they defeated Osotspa 4-2. Muangthong are second but they should really be top. They held a 4-2 lead over Chainat but were pegged back late on as Chainat snatched a climactic 4-4 draw.
Other injury time goals included TOT"s 93rd minute leveller at home to Chonburi, BEC Tero's 94th winner from Jose Franco to edge out Chiang Rai Utd 3-2, and an even later goal was scored in the 95th minute as Pattaya grabbed a very belated point at Bangkok Glass.
Army are in third but they'll be disappointed with their 1-1 at home to BBCU. Wuachon came from behind to win 2-1 at Isan Utd, Police beat Thai Port 1-0 and Samut Songkhram and TTM played out a 0-0. Incidentally TTM's three games this season have yet to produce a goal. With this humdrum form, they'll be struggling to allure new spectators from the Chiang Mai area.
The red card count ended with 8 dismissals. The early bathers were Jerry Amarah (Police), Ittiphol and Kiatjarern (Thai Port), Fofana (TOT), Panuwat (BEC), Caceres (CRU), Teerathep (BG), and Ogawa (Pattaya)

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

Ratchaburi moved to the top with a straightforward 4-0 win over Khon Kaen. Douglas Gardozo has proven that he'll get goals at this level and his double against the T-Rex moved the Brazilian to the top of the goalscoring charts with 5 goals.
Pattalung proved they are in the promotion hunt for the long run as they beat Sriracha 2-1 and PTT Rayong beat last week's league leaders Songkla 2-0.
A notable mention must go to Sompong Soleb of Bangkok United as he notched his first hat-trick for the club in their 3-0 win at Phuket.
With five teams set to be relegated to the regional leagues, alarm bells must be ringing at Air Force, JW Rangsit, Saraburi, Bangkok FC and Chantaburi after winless starts.  Air Force will be happy though to have collected a point at home to Suphanburi as will Saraburi who came from 3-0 down to salvage a draw with Bangkok FC. Chantaburi suffered last minute agony as they lost 2-1 at home to Korat and JW Rangsit were defeated 1-0 at Krabi.

Div 2 BKK
Rangsit FC 6-4 Samut Prakarn Utd
Kasem Bundit 4-2 Nontaburi
Samut Sakhon 2-0 Chamchuri Utd
Globex 0-0 R-BEC
North Bangkok 0-0 Thai Honda
Kasetsart 1-2 Prachinburi FC
Central Lions 0-3 Krung Thonburi

The Friday night game between Rangsit FC and Samut Prakarn United produced an amazing 10 (ten) goals as Rangsit beat SPK Utd 6-4. Rangsit's striker, Julius, pitched in with an impressive 4 goals to help gain Rangsit their first win of the season.
The biggest movers this weekend were Samut Sakhon as they shot up the table from sixth to third after an fine 2-0 success over the league leaders, Chamchuri United. Both goals were scored from corners and other sides in the league may well have noticed that chink in the Chamchuri armour. The other games involving the early pace setters, Globex v R-BEC and North Bangkok v Thai Honda, ended in stalemates.
