Saturday 6 July Review


Army Utd 0-2 Muangthong Utd
Chainat P-P Sisaket
Pattaya Utd 1-0 Samut Songkhram
Ratchaburi 2-3 Osotspa Saraburi

Muangthong United briefly sit on top of the official TPL table this morning after they won 2-0 at Army United. They achieved this without the presence of Winfried Schafer who was back in Germany coaching a charity match. The German would have missed seeing Piyaphon giving his side an early lead which really should have been 2-0 shortly before the break. The linesman incorrectly ruled Mario Djurovski offside much to the bemusement of the Gareth Southgate lookalike. Nipon did hit the crossbar for the hosts, but the game was won 20 minutes from time when Dagno Siaka netted from close range.

Another loss for Ratchaburi has them perilously close to the relegation zone. Chananan give Osotspa a 43rd minute lead, but two quick goals from Prayat and Chakrit meant the Dragons took a 2-1 lead into the break. Chananan struck again midway through the second half before a Lazarus Kaimbi header ensured the three points went back to Saraburi. The match winner was later dismissed in injury time.

Pattaya's 1-0 home win over Samut Songkhram keeps them within touching distance of safety. A trademark long range free kick from Pattaya stalwart Niweat was the difference between the sides as Pattaya completed the double over Samut Songkhram.

Division 1

Phuket 2-2 BBCU
Rayong Utd 1-0 Sriracha
Saraburi 2-1 Siam Navy
Singh Tarua 2-1 Ayutthaya
Trat 1-0 Khon Kaen

Despite a host of new signings, Phuket just can't seem to spark their season into life as they dropped more points yesterday. Bouba Abbo headed BBCU infront while spectators were still taking their seats, but Phuket levelled when Sittisak headed into his own net. The Islanders were looking good for the points when Ludo netted on his debut, but a long range strike from Weerayut in injury time ensured the points were shared.

The other four matches produced narrow home wins. Mathias Christen scored in injury time to earn Singh Tarua a 2-1 win over Ayutthaya while a 59th minute strike from Valery N Djomon was the winning goal in Sarburi's 2-1 over Siam Navy. Trat finally managed to keep a clean sheet as they edged out Khon Kaen 1-0 and the same scoreline earned Rayong United their first victory since Matchday 5 as they beat Sriracha.
