Army United 6-0 Bangkok United

Army United thumped Bangkok United 6-0 to win the Din Daeng derby.

The visitors conceded their first goal on five minutes after Jung Myung-Oh sidestepped a defender and let rip from 25 yards. The Korean's shot rebounded off the bar and Anuwat was on hand to net.

Five minutes later, a Lindemann corner from the right was flicked on by Tatree, and Chaiwat headed home for the second.

Bangkok United's closest effort of the game came on 18 minutes after a neat flick up by Gasmi allowed him to shoot from 25 yards, but his effort hit the base of the post.

Army were comfortably on top and Chainarong swivelled to find the bottom corner to convert a Lindemann slide rule pass on the half hour.

In all fairness, Bangkok United had their share of chances in the first hour, but the stuffing was knocked out of them when Mongkol converted Adisorn's square pass in the 73rd minute.

It was then just a matter of "how many" as Bangkok United wilted. Yet again Adisorn was allowed acres of space to burst down the right flank, and his cross was clipped home by Chainarong at the near post for his second of the night and Army's fifth.

With injury time approaching, Tatree finally go into the act knocking in a square pass from Lindemann to complete the rout.

It was an accomplished, professional performance from Army and at times their attacking play was outstanding. The only player who didn't impress me tonight was Mbuta.

On the other side of the coin, Bangkok United were awful and abject at the back and if they want to stay up they have to make themselves hard to beat. If they keep playing a back 4 with Prakasit, Mario, Gilson and Pongpipat, then they will be relegated in my opinion. As usual Romain Gasmi was United's most potent attacking threat and they'll need him to stay fit.

Man of the Match: Jung Myung-Oh - Could have chosen 5 Army players, but he just edged it for me
