Weekend Review 14-15 July

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

Muangthong United were the big winners this weekend as their comfortable 3-0 win over TTM saw them move eight points clear at the top. Closest challengers Chonburi and Buriram United slipped up as the Sharks lost 2-1 at home to lowly Samut Songkhram while the Thunder Castle twice threw away a goal advantage as they were held 2-2 by Police United at the New I-Mobile stadium.

The chasing pack of BEC Tero, Bangkok Glass and Army all enjoyed victories to close the gap between second and sixth to just three points. BEC and BG both had away day successes while Army edged out Thai Port 1-0 in Din Daeng.

Below the top six, only seven points separate ten clubs between Esan United in 7th and Samut Songkram in 16th. Chainat bought themselves some space as they won 1-0 at BBCU and Esan United came from behind to earn a 1-1 with TOT to stretch the telephone boys winless run to six games.

Division 1
PTT Rayong 6-0 FC Phuket
Air Force Utd 0-1 Songkla
Sriracha 4-0 Bangkok Utd

Sriracha's 4-0 pummelling of Bangkok United saw them leapfrog the Bangkok Angels into fourth place. Sasom's side have came up short in the last two weeks as they've suffered heavy losses to promotion rivals Sriracha and Suphanburi.
PTT Rayong kept in touch of the top five as three goals in each half left Phuket firmly embedded in the scrap zone at the bottom. Air Force United's first league game at North Bangkok University was a largely forgettable one as they lost 1-0 to mid-table Songkla.

Division 2 BKK
Krung Thonburi 2-1 Chamchuri Utd
Luk Esan 1-0 Central Lions
Assumption Thonburi 1-1 Samut Sakhon
Nonthaburi 1-1 Rangsit FC
Rayong Utd 0-0 Customs Utd
Thai Honda 2-1 Bangkok Christian
Kasem Bundit 0-1 Globex
R-BEC 4-0 North Bangkok
Samut Prakarn Utd 1-2 Kasetsart

It appears to be any three from five as the Bangkok region promotion chase livens up. R-BEC posted the biggest win of the weekend as they beat North Bangkok 4-0. Thai Honda and Kasetsart both enjoyed 2-1 wins while Samut Sakhon earned a reasonable point at improving Assumption Thonburi. Rayong United will consider their home stalemate with Customs as two points dropped as they relinquished their holding on the top spot.
