Bangkok Glass 0-0 Chonburi

The plaudits were shared as Bangkok Glass and Chonburi played out a 0-0 draw.

Chonburi's 4-5-1 formation struggled to make any headway in the opening period with Narit in the BG goal barely tested. Former Bangkok Glass favourite Samual Ajayi was given the lone striking role but he was largely ineffective as he had to keep coming deep to collect the ball. The lack of service in the final third meant that he couldn't use his pace to frighten defenders and Ajayi was comfortably marshaled by central defenders Subara and Pravinwat.  

The best chance of the half fell to BG's recent signing Lazarus Kaimbi. The former Osotspa striker linked up nicely with Chatree before his finish sailed wide of the target. The Singha Brewery's favourite son, Leesaw, also had a decent opportunity but his low shot was thwarted by Sinthaweechai at the near post.

The Sharks improved after the break and Narit was finally tested as he got down low to save Adul's drive and then he spectacularly tipped over Arthit's free kick. That was to be the Chonburi's number 7's last involvement in the game as he limped off to be replaced by Therdsak. Quero was also hooked minutes later with Anderson dos Santos replacing the winger. It seemed that Chonburi's coaching staff were content to sit on a point.

Chakrit then entered his contender for miss of the season as he failed to hit the target from inside the six yard box. Anucha's cut back from the by-line found an unmarked Chakrit at the back post. All he had to do was stroke it into the empty net but somehow the ball bobbled of his foot sideways into the grateful arms of Narit.

After that, both sides sat back to protect what they had. A draw was a fair result and the pair would have been happy with their defensive performances.
