Sunday 10 March - Review


Bangkok Utd 1-1 Samut Songkhram
Chonburi 1-0 Army
Pattaya Utd 1-2 Osotspa Saraburi
Ratchaburi 0-1 BEC Tero
TOT 1-1 Police Utd

Chonburi and BEC Tero both submitted 1-0 wins to keep check at the top of the table. The Sharks left it late against Army with Boskovic netting while Cleiton Silva scored a fantastic solo goal to help BEC see off Ratchaburi.  Army finished the match with 10 men and have suffered narrow defeats in their first two matches albeit against last season's top 2. Ratchaburi have one point but have yet to find the net since they won promotion to the TPL. Next up, Army and Ratchaburi will face off when the TPL resumes on 27th March.
Osotspa also won to join Chonburi and BEC Tero on four points. Second half goals from Suradej and Apipoo helped the M-Power come back to beat Pattaya 2-1
They other two matches saw the home sides come from behind to grab 1-1 draws. Park Jae Hyun converted from the spot midway through the second period to give Samut Songkhram the lead, but Sompong headed the leveller for Bangkok United two minutes later. It was also 1-1 between TOT and Police as both teams moved onto four points.

Division 1

Nakhon Pathom 1-1 PTT Rayong
Nakhon Ratchasima 2-2 TTM
Phuket 2-2 Bangkok FC
Trat 1-2 Singh Tarua

Singh Tarua were the only winners of the day and their 2-1 at Trat moved them to the summit of the table. The Khlong Toei side had to come from behind after Pimwitti gave Trat a 13th minute lead. Trat were reduced to 10 men on the hour before a Chokchai own goal and a crisp Christen strike maintained Singh Tarua's 100% winning record.
After only two rounds of fixtures, every side in the division has at least one point. That statistic shows how tight this league will be this season with three draws out of four on Sunday helping to emphasise this fact.
In the game that will have most bearing on the promotion race, it was honors even as Phuket drew 2-2 with Bangkok FC with the Bulligans equalizing twice to grab a point.
Up in Korat, the natives are growing slightly restless after their side has failed to win either of their opening home games. The 2-2 against TTM was one they'd have expected to win, but they won't win games if they continue to concede cheap goals.
Nakhon Pathom's first home game since 2010 ended 1-1 with PTT Rayong. The Hunters would have been happy with a point against a strong PTT Rayong side.
