Sunday 1 September Review


Bangkok Utd 2-1 TOT
Osotspa Saraburi 1-2 Buriram Utd
Pattaya 1-0 Suphanburi
Ratchaburi 0-1 Bangkok Glass

Scott Cooper's brief tenure as Buriram head coach ended yesterday morning and it was Spaniard Guillermo Oriol Gil who was given the seat next to the big man. It didn't take long for Buriram to open the scoring in Saraburi when Carmelo latched onto Suree's cross with a diving header. Osotspa fought back and were rewarded with an equalizer in the 52nd minute through Apipoo. Seconds after Osotspa finished celebrating, they were behind again as Osmar calmly converted a penalty. The 2-1 win moved Buriram three points clear of Muangthong with eight left to play.

With only one side to be relegated due to the TPL expanding to 20 teams, Pattaya United took a giant step to safety with a 1-0 win over Suphanburi. The Dolphin's 92nd minute winner came courtesy of an own goal when Pairote headed over his own advancing keeper into a vacant net.

Phudit's header gave TOT the lead at Bangkok United but it couldn't prevent them from losing their eighth successive match. Goals from Paul Ekollo and Romain Gasmi ensured the Angels fought back to move above TOT in the standings.

Teerathep's late strike was the only goal of the match as Bangkok Glass won 1-0 at Ratchaburi. BG would have been slightly perturbed that Jerkovic's first half goal was ruled out for offside when it clearly wasn't. The game got a bit feisty after the interval when there was an ugly punch-up in the Bangkok Glass goal mouth. In the aftermath, the referee red carded Henri Joel and BG's keeper Kritsana.

Division 1

Air Force 1-0 Trat
Bangkok FC 2-0 BBCU
PTT Rayong 0-2 Siam Navy

Air Force are back to the summit of the table after a 1-0 win over Trat. Their stoppage time winner had a slice of luck to it as Supakorn's 35 yard thunderbolt freekick rebounded off the crossbar and back into the net off the unfortunate head of Trat's keeper Watcharapol.

Souleymane Coulibaly was on target twice as Siam Navy won 2-0 at PTT Rayong. The defeat dropped PTT to second while Navy moved ten points clear of the drop and extended their unbeaten run to eight matches.

Bangkok FC are looking favorites to claim the third promotion slot after they beat BBCU 2-0. Goals after the interval from Watson and Jaturong moved the Iron Bulls three points clear of Singh Tarua.
