Saturday 18 May Review


Bangkok Utd 1-2 Suphanburi
Pattaya Utd 1-2 Bangkok Glass
Ratchaburi 2-3 Chainat
TOT 1-2 Muangthong Utd

Yesterday saw a first in Thai football with a player being ordered off for removing his shorts and putting them on his head after he'd scored a goal. The man at the centre of the incident was Mario Djurovski. His goal in the 35th minute had given Muangthong a 2-0 lead after Datsakorn had earlier scored one of his free kick specials. Djurovski's surprised reaction after the referee had produced the second yellow card was almost as amusing as seeing him wearing underpants and pretending to fire a machine gun at his own fans.
Lee Jun Ki did pull a goal back before half time for TOT, but there was no second half fight back as MTU comfortably held out to increase their lead at the top to four points.

Incidentally, the four games yesterday saw four away wins. Michael Byrne hit the decisive goal 16 minutes from time to give Chainat a 3-2 victory in their first ever league meeting with Ratchaburi.

Bangkok United and Pattaya United both remain in deep trouble with the pair suffering 2-1 home losses. Dragan Boskovic gave Suphanburi an early but that was soon cancelled out by a Romain Gasmi header. Wuttichai scored from close range to restore the lead for Suphanburi as they held out for their first win in six outings.
It was the same sequence of scoring in Nong Prue with Suphasek netting for Glass near the half hour mark. Dyachenko did pull one back for the Dolphins before the interval, but a Peerapong free kick wrapped up the points for Bangkok Glass. That victory lifts BG into the top half of the table for the first time this season

Division 1

Air Force Utd 2-1 Saraburi
Bangkok FC 3-1 Sriracha
Krabi 1-0 Singh Tarua
Phuket 2-2 Rayong FC
PTT Rayong 0-0 Khon Kaen

Air Force United increased their lead at the top to four points after a 2-1 home win over Saraburi. Kouassi Hermann and Santipap were on target for the Airmen in a fiery game which produced 10 yellow cards.
PTT remain second on goal difference but they'll be slightly concerned that they could only draw 0-0 at home to Khon Kaen.
Three wins on the trot have moved Bangkok FC into third. They staged a second half come back to see off Sriracha 3-1. Lee Tuck was yet again on the score sheet along with Tawin and Yuki Bamba.
Krabi had to be patient before Aran headed a 90th minute winner to send the Energy home happy. The 1-0 loss ended Singh Tarua's four match unbeaten run as they dropped to fourth.
Elsewhere in the south, Phuket squandered a two goal advantage at home to Rayong FC. Doumeng netted from the spot before Giorgi doubled that advantage for the Islanders shortly after the break. Walther pulled a goal back for the Wild Horses and in the 93rd minute, Nuttawut grabbed an unlikely equalizer. Despite claiming a late point, Rayong FC remain five points from safety.
