Weekend Review 1-2 September

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

Muangthong claimed another important scalp as they beat Bangkok Glass 2-1 at the Leo Stadium. Teerasil was yet again on the scoresheet for MTU as he scored the opening goal. Muangthong remain 10 points clear of Chonburi who comfortably won at Chainat 3-0. Sukree chipped in with a second half double after Suttinan had given the Sharks a first half lead. Chainat's Sumet was dismissed for a cowardly stamp on Pipob after they striker had been felled.

The alarm bells are blaring at the PAT after Thai Port lost 4-2 at home to Pattaya United. The boys from Klong Toei were extremely charitable at the back as the clinical Pattaya attack gratefully accepted their donations.
Port remain just above the drop zone as BBCU and Police could only draw. The game at the Rajamangala ended 0-0 between BBCU and Osotspa while I'm guessing that Police United would have been reasonably satisfied with their point at managerless BEC Tero. The Pathumthani side twice came from behind levelling with goals from Tana and Daniel Cortes.
TTM remain rooted to the bottom with a 1-0 loss at Buriram Utd. By all accounts, Buriram weren't firing on all cylinders, yet despite Theeratorn missing a penalty they did enough to edge out TTM 1-0. The sloppy nature of the Buriram goal highlights why TTM will almost certainly be in Division 1 next season.

The 39 seconds clip on Siam Sport suggests it was a 0-0 borefest between Samut Songkhram and Chaing Rai Utd, while Wuachon v TOT ended with the same outcome. Kim Tae Young and Diego Gaston were the scorers as Esan Utd drew 1-1 with Army Utd.

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

Ratchaburi suffered their first home defeat of the season with a 2-1 loss to in form Bangkok United. It appeared to be business as usual for the Dragons when Abbo gave them a 5th minute lead. Whatever Sasom said at half time obviously worked as United were 2-1 up within ten minutes of the restart courtesy of a Paul Ekollo brace. The Angels held on to claim second spot and sit a half dozen points behind Ratchaburi.
The other two Sunday games in the south both ended 0-0 between Phatthalung v Suphanburi and Krabi v Songkla. Suphanburi dropped to third while Krabi are three points and places behind the Warriors in sixth.

The Blue Marlins good run came to a shuddering halt after they were sent packing at 3-0 at Saraburi while PTT Rayong had to play the patience card before they eventually saw off Bangkok FC to move back into 4th place.

The basement battle went the way of Raj Pracha as they earned their first away win this season. Raj claimed a late winner to beat 10 man Chantaburi 3-2. The Crowns are now nine points from safety with nine to play while Chantaburi could officially be relegated next weekend depending on how the results pan out.

Division 2 BKK
Rangsit FC 2-1 Samut Sakhon
Kasem Bundit 1-2 Chamchuri Utd
Customs Utd 1-1 Central Lions
Luk Esan 0-1 Rayong Utd
R-BEC 0-1 Thai Honda
Nonthaburi 1-3 Assumption Thonburi
North Bangkok 5-1 Bangkok Christian
Globex 0-0 Kasetsart
Samut Prakarn Utd 2-0 Krung Thonburi

Thai Honda can breath a sigh of relief after they booked a play off berth after their 1-0 win at R-BEC. A second half long distance free kick which appeared to touch nobody on the way through to goal was the difference as R-BEC virtually kissed their promotion hopes goodbye.
Rayong Utd look odds-on to join Honda in the end of season competition while stuttering Kasetsart in third have the points in the bag which should just about see them over the finishing line.
At the bottom, if there is to be relegation as has been rumoured for months now, then it's time to bid farewell to Nonthaburi and Central Lions.
