Weekend Review 21-22 July

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

Muangthong maintained their five point lead courtesy of a 2-1 victory at a full to the brim Samut Songkhram stadium. The unlikely hero of the day was Thitipan with his 76th minute goal proving to be the winner.

Chonburi came from behind to record their eighth consecutive TPL win over BEC Tero with second half goals from Pipob and Dossevi earning the Sharks a 2-1 win. Bangkok Glass and Army cancelled each other out in a 0-0 draw while Buriram dropped more points as they were pegged back at Esan United for a 1-1 draw. It could have been worse had Sivaruck not felled Monthol just outside the box as he was rounding him in injury time. The Buriram keeper was rightly red carded and his cynical foul probably saved his side a point.

TOT finally saw the Bas Savage moonwalk as his late goal won all three points for the Laksi side. Dudu's brace looked to have earned Osotspa a valuable three points at Chainat but they blew their 2-0 advantage allowing the Hornbills to score two late goals. Thai Port v Wuachon ended 0-0 while Chiang Rai Utd edged out Police United 1-0. I'm finally glad to put the statistic of TTM not scoring a home goal to bed as they finally got one through Laksana to beat Pattaya United 1-0. It was a shame that only 569 spectators witnessed the Tobacco Monopoly's first ever TPL goal in Chiang Mai.

Division 1
Sriracha 2-0 Khon Kaen
Saraburi 1-2 Bangkok Utd
Air Force Utd 4-2 Raj Pracha
Chantaburi 1-5 PTT Rayong
Siam Navy 0-0 Krabi
Bangkok FC 0-1 Suphanburi
Pattalung 0-3 Korat
Ratchaburi 3-1 JW Rangsit
FC Phuket 0-0 Songkla

Ratchaburi opened a four point gap at the top after they beat JW Rangsit 3-1. Second placed Krabi collected a useful point at Siam Navy while Suphanburi remain in third with a late winner at Bangkok FC. Sriracha, Bangkok United and PTT Rayong all earned fine wins to keep in touch with the top three.

Air Force United ended their five game goalless streak with a four goal blitz in one game against Raj Pracha. Hermann helped himself to a hat-trick as the Airmen won 4-2. The Swatcats showed no compassion for ailing Pattalung by sweeping them aside 3-0 while elsewhere in the south FC Phuket and Songkla drew 0-0.

Division 2 Bangkok
Samut Prakarn Utd 1-2 Rangsit FC
Krung Thonburi 1-0 Central Lions

Rayong Utd 2-1 Kasetsart

The leadership baton passed back to Rayong United as they beat promotion rivals Kasetsart 2-1. Thai Honda relinquished top spot after they were held 1-1 at home by North Bangkok. R-BEC and Samut Sakhon both enjoyed victories to keep themselves firmly in the promotion hunt.
