Sunday 26 May Review


Bangkok Glass 3-1 Bangkok Utd
Buriram Utd 3-0 Army Utd
Chainat 4-2 Pattaya Utd
Muangthong Utd 2-1 Samut Songkhram
Suphanburi 3-1 TOT

There were five home wins on Sunday and plenty of goals to excite the fans of the TPL. Muangthong are still huffing and puffing, yet they are still claiming wins. Their 2-1 home win over struggling Samut Songkhram was far from convincing with the away side playing the last 30 minutes with 10 men. Pichitpong and Sarawut were on target for MTU before Guy Hubert scored a spectacular injury time consolation.

Second placed Buriram on the other hand, had a slightly easier afternoon as they beat Army United 3-0. First half goals from Carmelo and Osmar sent the Thunder Castle on their way before a second half own goal wrapped up the points.

Back to back wins have seen Suphanburi climb back to fourth spot. A goal from Bireme Diuof and two from Wuttichai had the game won before Lee Jun Ki grabbed a late consolation goal for TOT. 

It was a similar sequence of scoring at Bangkok Glass as the Glass Rabbits secured their third straight win. Chatree scored with two headers and a rasping strike from Ekkaphan had BG 3-0 up before Romain Gasmi pulled one back for Bangkok United in injury time.

Pattaya United remain deep in trouble with a 4-2 defeat at Chainat. The Dolphins have now lost 10 of their 12 games and conceded 27 goals in that time. The win for Chainat has lifted them up to sixth place

Division 1

Khon Kaen 1-1 Nakhon Ratchasima
Rayong FC 3-1 Krabi
Saraburi 2-1 Ayutthaya
Singh Tarua 0-1 PTT Rayong

Rayong FC finally broke their duck with a 3-1 win over the inconsistent Krabi. A 19th minute Kun Sik Choi goal set the Wild Horses on their way before a deflected Alongkorn free kick doubled that advantage 10  minutes later. The win was secured just after the hour when Suriyakan headed home from a corner. The only blot on the day for Rayong was Krabi's injury time goal which meant there was to be no clean sheet.

A large travelling support from Nakhon Ratchasima were denied seeing their favorites win when Sarawut levelled for the T-Rex four minutes from time. Yusuke Kato had earlier given the Swatcats the lead but their cause wasn't helped when Ponlawat was given a second yellow card for a hot-headed hack 20 minutes from time.

Saraburi's 2-1 win over local rivals Ayutthaya moved them into the top half of the table. Bernard Henry nodded the Warlords in front before Valery Djomon capitalized on some slack defending to increase the lead. Antonio Vega pulled a late goal back but it was too late for Ayutthaya.

As reported earlier, PTT Rayong moved four points clear of Singh Tarua in fourth after their 1-0 win at the PAT Stadium.
