Saturday 29 June Review


Bangkok Glass P-P Sisaket
Bangkok Utd 2-1 Chiang Rai Utd
Suphanburi 2-1 Songkhla Utd
TOT 0-0 Buriram Utd

The Buriram express was slightly delayed as they were held to a scrappy 0-0 at TOT. There wasn't much to excite the bumper 4,000 crowd in Laksi. The point moved Buriram five points clear of second placed Muangthong United.

Suphanburi climbed up to third after they beat Songkhla 2-1. Pairote was credited with the first goal even though it appeared to glance off the head of Songkhla's Kone Seydou, before Bireme Diouf side footed the second four minutes before the interval. Songkhla were given a lifeline in first half injury time when Decha turned the ball into his own net, but that hope vanished when Jeera was dismissed 15 minutes from time. The War Elephants had chances to increase their lead as it ended 2-1.

Things are looking bright at Bangkok United after they beat Chiang Rai United 2-1 yesterday. The Angels have moved out of the drop zone and with a host of new arrivals set to start next week, it's looking increasingly likely that Bangkok United will stay up. Chatchai gave BKK Utd the lead on the half hour mark, but that lead was wiped out when Leonardo punished some slack defending early in the second half. With ten minutes left, Romain Gasmi smashed home to win the match.

Division 1

Ayutthaya 1-1 Khon Kaen
Bangkok FC 2-3 PTT Rayong
Nakhon Pathom Utd 2-2 Rayong FC
Phuket 0-1 Nakhon Ratchasima
Trat 2-2 Siam Navy

PTT Rayong won the big game 3-2 at Bangkok FC to cement their position in the promotion spots. Nakhon Ratchasima rounded off their week in the south with a pleasing 1-0 win in Phuket. Yusuke Kato's goal midway through the second half inflicted Phuket's first home defeat of the campaign.

Elsewhere, draws were the theme of the day. Trat's 2-2 at home to Siam Navy ensured that Trat completed the first leg without a zero in any of their scorelines.  Another notable stat from this match was that the point for Siam Navy was their first one on the road. Ayutthaya and Khon Kaen have been slowly edging away from danger recently so a point each was probably the expected outcome. Malick Ndape was Ayutthaya's scorer while Li Xiang was Khon Kaen's. Rayong FC twice took the lead at Nakhon Pathom, but they were twice pegged back with Camara Souleymane grabbing the decisive second equalizer 12 minutes from time.
