Matchday 5 Review


Army Utd 2-1 Songkhla Utd
Osotspa Saraburi 1-1 TOT
Sisaket 1-0 Police
Suphanburi 0-2 Chiang Rai Utd
Buriram Utd 2-0 PTT Rayong
Chonburi 3-2 Bangkok Glass
Muangthong 1-2 Ratchaburi
Singh Tarua 3-0 Samut Songkhram
Air Force 0-0 BEC Tero
Bangkok Utd 0-0 Chainat

Singh Tarua's 3-0 victory over Samut Songkhram propelled them to the top of the league. A Leandro penalty gave them the lead shortly before half time and Kroekrit and Sarawut added the first non-Leandro goals of the campaign in the second period.

Ratchaburi are into second place after they stunned Muangthong with two late goals. Mario's 42nd minute goal looked like it was going to be the match winner until a comical own goal and a superb effort from Puwadol turned the table in Ratchaburi's favour.

Another late comeback was seen at the Chonburi Stadium as the Sharks overturned a 2-1 deficit against Bangkok Glass. In the 90th minute, Chakrit curled a free kick into the top corner to level and Thiago's header in the 95th minute completed the turnaround.

Tanakorn's late winner for Army wasn't as dramatic but it was still a vital three points for the Boys in Green. Vincent gave Songkhla an early advantage but two goals from Tanakorn won it for Army. Army are now fourth in the table and Tanakron is the joint top Thai goal scorer in the TPL.

Elsewhere 2-0 wins for Buriram and Chiang Rai United moved them into the top half and Sisaket's 1-0 over Police saw them leap out of the relegation placings all the way into tenth position. Osotspa still can't buy a win at the Rajamangala Stadium as a late goal by TOT denied them three points, and there were stalemates between Air Force v BEC Tero and Bangkok United v Chainat.

Division 1

Pattaya Utd 2-0 TTM
Roi Et Utd 2-3 Bangkok FC
Saraburi 3-0 BBCU
Ang Thong 1-0 Krabi
Ayutthaya 2-0 Khon Kaen
Phuket 2-1 Sriracha
Siam Navy 1-0 Trat
Phitsanulok 2-1 Chiang Mai
Nakhon Ratchasima 0-0 Nakhon Pathom Utd

The top versus bottom clash went against the grain as Pattaya United defeated TTM 2-0. Pattaya moved off the foot of the table while TTM dropped to fifth.
The team now at the top of the pile are Saraburi. They staged a late rally to beat BBCU 3-0. Korat would have been pleased to have kept another clean sheet but at the same time their failure to beat Nakhon Pathom will be regarded as two points dropped. The Swatcats are in second and they are one place above Ayutthaya. The Ancient Warriors are slowly moving through the gears and goals from Berlin and Sanchez helped them beat Khon Kaen 2-0.
There are three other sides tied with Ayutthaya on ten points. 1-0 wins for Ang Thong and Siam Navy leave them firmly in the promotion picture and as mentioned earlier, TTM are the other side on ten points.
Phitsanulok ended their four match drawing sequence with a 2-1 home success over Chiang Mai. A late goalkeeping misjudgement from a corner by Narathip allowed Supakorn to knock home the winner.
In the remaining clashes, Bangkok FC won 3-2 at Roi Et United while Phuket defeated Sriracha 2-1.
