TPL Matchday 3 Fixtures

Army Utd v Ratchaburi
BEC Tero v Pattaya Utd
Buriram Utd v Chainat
Chiang Rai Utd v Bangkok Glass
Chonburi v Muangthong Utd
Osotspa Saraburi v Bangkok Utd
Police Utd v Suphanburi
Samut Songkhram v TOT
Songkhla Utd v Sisaket

All of the Wednesday matches kick off at 7pm except Osotspa v Bkk Utd (6pm), Samut Songkhram v TOT (6pm), and BEC Tero v Pattaya Utd (6.30pm)

As you can see in the banner above, the "Crash of the Titans" between Chonburi and Muangthong Utd is the highlight of tomorrow evening. Having spoken recently to fans of both sides, neither are overly impressed with their respective starts to the 2013 campaign. Despite a severe beating in Japan last time out, Muangthong can still boast an unbeaten TPL run which stretches back 36 games to their 1-0 loss at Pattaya United on the last day of the 2011 season.

At the other end of the table, Army, Chiang Rai Utd and Bangkok Glass have yet to register any points. I suppose you can excuse Army as their opening two fixtures have been away at Muangthong and Chonburi, although another loss against Ratchaburi would have alarm bells ringing. For Chiang Rai Utd and Bangkok Glass, at least one of them will break their duck when they meet at the United Stadium.

It will also be interesting to see how Chainat perform at Buriram this time. Last season the Hornbills suffered two heavy defeats. The 3-0 loss at Chainat was compounded with a 7-2 mauling at the Thunder Castle.

Former Esan United striker Mark Burchill has found work back in his native homeland after his club were disbanded a few weeks ago. He will work at Livingston FC as assistant manager.
