Weekend Review 7-8 April

Chiang Rai Utd 1-1 Thai Port
Bangkok Glass 2-0 Police Utd
Chonburi 5-1 Isan Utd
Wuachon 2-2 BBCU
TTM 0-1 BEC Tero
Pattaya 0-2 Chainat
Muangthong 2-1 TOT
Army 1-3 Osotspa Saraburi
Samut Songkhram 0-3 Buriram Utd

Buriram United, Muangthong, Bangkok Glass and Chonburi all still remain undefeated. The Thunder Castle eased to a 3-0 win at Samut Songkhram with three second half goals whereas Muangthong were made to work for their 2-1 home win over TOT. Teerasil scored a double with his second coming in the 86th minute to seal the contest. A first half brace from BG's Ajayi was enough to see off Police while Thomas Dossevi announced himself to Thai football with a hat-trick to help Chonburi dispose of Isan United.
TTM and Chainat's drawing sequences finally ended with contrasting outcomes. Chainat inflicted Pattaya's first loss of the season as two goals from Puwadol helped the Hornbills on their way. TTM lost to the improving BEC Tero 1-0 with Cleiton Silva scoring his fifth goal of the season. TTM have now played 360 minutes of football without scoring. More worryingly for the club would be that only 1858 people turned up to watch them as it appears the majority of the Chiang Mai public have shunned the relocating tobacco monopoly.
Bungling refereeing reared it's ugly head in the games at Chiang Rai United and Army. At one point in the Chiang Rai Utd v Thai Port match, the home side had 12 players on the pitch. The extra man advantage for the couple of minutes didn't help CRU as they were held to a 1-1 as Thai Port picked up their first point of the season. Osotspa beat Army 3-1 with Dudu blitzing the home side with a hat-trick. Again indecisiveness was at the forefront as it took 4 minutes of bickering between players and officials in the first half before a penalty was eventually taken.
Wuachon's first home game in Songkla ended 2-2 as they shared the points with BBCU.

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

Pre-season favorites Suphanburi were undone as they lost 2-1 at home to promotion rivals Ratcahburi while Pattalung and PTT Rayong unexpectedly lost for the first time. Pattalung went down 1-0 at Saraburi and PTT Rayong were humbled 3-1 at JW Rangsit. The bulk of the 338 present in Nakhon Nayok would have been delighted to witness a Mongkol hat-trick for the home side.
Krabi, Korat, Sriracha and Bangkok United moved into contention with their third wins of the season. Krabi stunned Raj Pracha with a four goal blitz while Korat had to patiently wait around the locker room for torrential rain to pass before they eventually beat Siam Navy 2-1. A couple of goals from Douglas Cobo saw Sriracha over the line against Air Force and Bangkok United beat Chantaburi with a similar scoreline as they notched their first home win of the season.
The remaining two games finished in 1-1 draws between Bangkok FC v Songkla and Khon Kaen v Phuket.

Division 2 BKK
Globex 0-6 Samut Prakarn Utd
Luk Isan 3-3 Kasem Bundit
Nontaburi 0-0 North Bangkok
Prachinburi FC 2-0 Central Lions
Chamchuri 0-1 Kasetsart
Thai Honda 0-1 Samut Sakhon
R-BEC 2-0 Customs Utd
Assumption Thonburi 1-2 Rangsit FC
Krung Thonburi 2-2 Bangkok Christian

Division 2 Bangkok has a new leader as R-BEC beat Customs 2-0. Samut Sakhon moved in to second position with a narrow 1-0 victory at promotion chasing Thai Honda.
Chamchuri's early season promise is fading quickly as they suffered their second league defeat. Earlier in the week Kasetsart dumped them out of the Toyota League Cup and they rubbed more salts in the wounds with a 1-0 win at the Chula Stadium. Globex are also on a downward spiral after promising early form. They suffered a humiliating 6-0 loss at home to Samut Prakarn United.
Prachinburi have crept into contention after picking up 10 points out of a possible 12 in their last four matches.
