Police Utd v Thai Port

Wuachon Utd v Esan Utd
Muangthong Utd v Chainat
Pattaya Utd v Bangkok Glass
Chiang Rai Utd v BEC Tero
TTM v Samut Songkhram
Osotspa Saraburi v Buriram Utd

There will be a full house at Muangthong this Sunday as one point will see them crowned TPL champions. The prospective champs take on Chainat who themselves are desperate for points for other reasons. Earlier in the season, the Hornbills scored two very late goals as they fought back to draw 4-4 in a remarkable game at the Khao Plong Stadium. For Muangthong, they might not even need a point if Chonburi fail to beat TOT on Saturday.

The Police v Thai Port game will be a tense affair as both sides continue to battle against the drop. Police have picked up 10 points from the last 12 available while Port have amassed one less with 9 points. In the last two seasons, Thai Port have etched out two scrappy 1-0 league wins at the Thammasart against Police and the Khlong Toei Army would be delighted to complete a hat-trick of scrappy 1-0's come 9pm on Saturday night.

Inconsistent Pattaya United have been dragged back into the relegation picture with three defeats in their last four. They take on Bangkok Glass who have been on a wretched run of form themselves collecting only 3 points from the last 24 available.

The rest of the games are BBCU v Army, Wuachon v Esan Utd, Chiang Rai Utd v BEC Tero, TTM v Samut Songkhran and Osotspa v Buriram Utd.

Krabi 4-1 Raj Pracha
Siam Navy 2-2 Korat
Chantaburi 0-3 Bangkok Utd
FC Phuket 5-2 Khon Kaen
Ratchaburi 0-0 Suphanburi
Air Force Utd 2-4 Sriracha
Phattalung 1-2 Saraburi

Sriracha v Phatthalung
Songkhla v PTT Rayong
Bangkok Utd v FC Phuket
Korat v Chantaburi

JW Rangsit v Krabi
Raj Pracha v Siam Navy
Bangkok FC v Saraburi
Suphanburi v Air Force Utd
Khon Kaen v Ratchaburi

Ratchaburi just need one point at Khon Kaen to confirm promotion to the TPL. Behind them, it looks like it will go right down to the wire with two from Bangkok United, Suphanburi and Sriracha battling to join the Dragons in the TPL. All three of them have home matches this weekend with Bangkok United (67) hosting FC Phuket, Suphanburi (66) welcoming mid-table Air Force United while Srircaha (64) take on Phattalung.

Two of the aforementioned opponents, FC Phuket and Phattalung, are just one point above the relegation placings. Songkla and Khon Kaen are one point behind them on 33 points. As previously stated, Khon Kaen have their work cut out against league leaders Ratchaburi, but Songkhla will be slightly more optimistic as they entertain a PTT Rayong side that has slipped out of the promotion hunt.

JW Rangsit will be hoping that results go to the form book as a win over Krabi could haul them to within touching distance of making a remarkable recover. Likewise Bangkok FC will be sharing similar thoughts and a win over Saraburi would just about see them over the safety finishing line.

Division 2 Playoffs
(Group A - Sunday)
Roi Et Utd v Ayutthaya
Rayong Utd v Phitsanoluk
Paknampo NSRU v Pattani

Early pace setters, NSRU, will see the visit of Pattani as a chance to double their points tally to six. The Queen Cannons hardly set the southern league alight on their travels with only four victories and 11 goals scored in ten away fixtures. NSRU on the other hand, won 13 out of 17 at home netting 37 goals in the process.
The Roi Et v Ayutthaya clash is the battle of the group heavyweights with the winner of this taking on the mantle of being group favorites to make it to Division 1.
Phitsanoluk are the only side without a point and they have another away trip this time at Rayong United. The Klaeng side were seconds away from three points last weekend at Ayutthaya but were thwarted by a late leveller.

(Group B - Saturday)
Thai Honda v Trat
Trang v Rayong FC
Chiang Mai FC v Sisaket Utd

Opening day defeats for Chiang Mai FC and Sisaket Utd sets their clash up this Saturday as one that neither side can afford to lose. Chiang Mai will have pencilled this fixture in as a three pointer while Sisaket would probably settle for one point knowing that five of their eight remaining games are at home.
Trang also need to bounce back after their poor showing in the 3-0 defeat at Trat last time. They host Rayong FC who'll be bidding to be the first league side to win at the Tessaban Nakhon Stadium this season.
Thai Honda and Trat put their 100% records on the line when they meet in Lat Krabang. Both sides got off to perfect starts and the winner of this would looking a good bet for Division 1 football next season.
