Saturday 6th April Review


Army Utd 6-0 Bangkok Utd
Buriram Utd 6-1 Songkhla Utd
Chonburi 5-1 Pattaya Utd
Ratchaburi 0-2 Muangthong Utd

Army Utd, Buriram Utd and Chonburi all submitted emphatic home victories while Muangthong United recovered from a midweek AFC hammering to win 2-0 at Ratchaburi. Djurovski put the league leaders infront in the 20th minute before Teerasil wrapped up the win in the last minute.
Buriram United moved into second position with a 6-1 win over Songkhla United. All six goals were scored by Buriram's Spanish contingent with Carmello claiming the match ball after netting a hat-trick. Recent arrivals, Javier Patino and Juan Quero, also got goals with the Filipino citizen Patino scoring twice.
As reported earlier, Bangkok United's defence was posted missing as they succumbed to a 6-0 drubbing at the Thai Army Stadium. That win moved Army up to fifth.
Pattaya United must have thought that they were on to something when Rachata beat the offside trap to give them an 18th minute lead at the Chonburi Stadium. However Adul levelled shortly afterwards and second half braces from Pipob and Thiago Cunha rounded off a satisfactory evening for the Sharks.

Division 1

Bangkok FC 0-0 Air Force
Khon Kaen 2-0 Sriracha
Krabi 0-0 Saraburi
Trat 1-2 PTT Rayong

It was a slightly more cagey affair in Division one with only 5 goals scored compared to that of 21 in the TPL.
The highest scoring match was a 2-1 win for PTT Rayong at struggling Trat. The Oil Millionaires had to come from behind with goals from Phaisan and Pipat moving them up to third place.
The only other winners on Saturday were Khon Kaen. Matius Recio enhanced his growing cult status with a double to move Khon Kaen out of the relegation places. Although I must say that the dubious goals panel in other leagues would have credited the first goal as an own goal, but in Thailand, it will go down as a Recio goal.
A crowd of 4,173 turned up in Bang Mod to watch Bangkok FC and Air Force fight out a 0-0 draw while down south in Krabi, it was the same result as The Energy couldn't penetrate the Saraburi back line.
