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

A late afternoon rain storm turned the SCG Stadium into a swimming pool and there was no alternative other than to postpone the match 24 hours to Sunday evening. When the action did eventually take place, Frank Achaempong gave Buriram an early lead but his strike was cancelled out shortly after the break from a Gjurovski penalty. MTU were reduced to ten players when Piyapong received a second yellow conceding a penalty. Kawin saved the spot kick from Suchao but the hosts were fortunate when Buriram had a goal ruled out for offside in injury time as it ended 1-1.
Thiago Cunha set up one and scored another as Chonburi earned a deserved 2-0 win at Pattaya while it was a day of firsts for Chiang Rai United and Police. Tatree's goal shortly before the interval was enough to halt Army's six game winless streak and it also ended CRU's unbeaten home record. Early and a late strikes ensured Police finally celebrated a home win as they beat Wuachon 2-0.

The enigma of Bangkok Glass continues as they beat Chainat 5-3 in a thrilling match at the Leo Stadium. Ajayi and Saruta weighed in with two apiece as Chainat conceded their 12th goal in two games. Glass moved above BEC Tero into fourth after the Fire Dragons lost a late goal to lose 1-0 at home to Esan Utd. Samut Songkhram's recent revival continued with a 91st minute goal helping them overcome BBCU 1-0. Port and TOT cancelled each other out while TTM moved a step nearer Division 1 losing 2-1 at home to Osotspa.

Saraburi 1-3 PTT Rayong
Air Force Utd 1-1 Siam Navy
Sriracha 4-0 Songkla
Khon Kaen 2-0 Raj Pracha
Phatthalung 1-0 Krabi

The Chantaburi Hares came within two minutes of spectacularly ending their 12 match losing sequence. It took an 89th minute winner to spare Ratchaburi's blushes as they opened up a nine point lead at the top.
A late free kick from JW Rangsit produced the shock of the weekend as they came from behind to beat high flying Suphanburi 2-1. The loss for the Warriors means there are now four teams tied in second with 46 points. PTT Rayong are hitting form at the right time with their 3-1 win at Saraburi moving them above Suphanburi while the double act of Gasmi and Sompong again provided the ammo for Bangkok United as they saw off Korat 2-0. Sriracha brushed aside Songkla 4-0 while Krabi lost the southern derby at Phatthalung to fall three points off the pace.

The monsoon theme continued to play havoc to Division 1 Bangkok Saturday fixtures. Siam Navy had two players sent off in their soaking 1-1 draw at Air Force. Renato scored one and was then ordered off for two yellows while Tinnapob saw red for headbutting Gorrick. For the second year running, the Bangkok FC v FC Phuket fixture was abandoned due to heavy rain.This time it was a more pleasant outcome for the Islanders as they won 1-0 once the game was resumed on Sunday morning.
