Saturday 27 April Review


Bangkok United 4-0 Pattaya Utd
Buriram Utd 3-1 Police Utd
Muangthong Utd 2-1 Chiang Rai Utd
Songkhla Utd 1-1 Samut Songkhram

Muangthong Utd and Buriram Utd earned routine home wins before they face their last AFC group games on Wednesday. Goals from Sarawut and Dagno Siaka helped MTU come from behind to move them four points clear at the top. The Thunder Castle do have a game in hand and they had to be patient before three second half goals saw off Police Utd 3-1.The impressive Patino scored two headers before Carmelo took advantage of some pub league defending to make it 3-0. Surachart was given a red before Pokkhao grabbed a late consolation for the Crimson Cops.
Bangkok United's season finally kicked off as they sent a hapless Pattaya side packing 4-0. The official TPL site credited Sompong with a hat-trick and Gasmi with the other, but I'm pretty sure Sompong didn't get a touch on the second goal and it should have been awarded to Gasmi. Regardless of who gets credited for the goals, it should be noted that Romain Gasmi was involved in all four them.
That win lifted the Bangkok Angels out of the drop zone above Pattaya and Samut Songkhram but the Mae Khlong side would have been pleased that Gilbert Koomson's equalizer earned them a decent point down at Songkhla United.

Division 1

Air Force 2-1 Phuket
Ayutthaya 1-0 Nakhon Pathom Utd
Khon Kaen 1-1 Singh Tarua
Rayong Utd 1-1 Nakhon Ratchasima
Trat 3-2 TTM

Air Force won the big game of the day to move to the top of the table. Thongchai gave Phuket the lead in first half stoppage time, but Air Force fought back with second half goals from Sirodom and Julius Oiboh to help them complete the comeback in the 2-1 win.
Singh Tarua also had to come from behind to earn a point at Khon Kaen. Ekachai's goal cancelled out Adisak's opener as Tarua joined Air Force on 16 points.
Didier Sohna levelled twice for TTM yet that wasn't enough for any points as goals from Rattaporn, Toth and Raymond moved Trat into the top half.
It was also a good day for fellow promoted side Ayutthaya as they finally tasted victory for the first time in Division 1. An own goal midway through the second period was the only goal of the match.
Rayong United couldn't make it a hat-trick of home wins for the newbies as they were held 1-1 by Nakhon Ratchasima. Korat old boy Valci Junior gave the hosts an early lead, but Apiwat drew the Swatcats level as full time was approaching.
