Saturday 29 March Review


Chiang Rai Utd 1-1 Buriram Utd
PTT Rayong 2-2 Chonburi
Ratchaburi 3-0 Army Utd
TOT 2-0 Bangkok Utd
BEC Tero 1-1 Muangthong Utd

Ratchaburi moved clear at the top with a comfortable 3-0 win over Army United. Two first half penalties, one from Douglas and one from Heberty, gave the Dragons a two goal advantage. The contest was over by the hour as Assadin added a third.

The first TPL crowd with less than 1,000 spectators watched TOT beat Bangkok United 2-0. Goals in each half from Gong Young Sun ensured that TOT will finish the weekend in the top half of the table.

The remaining three matches ended all square and anybody exiting the stadium early would have missed some last ditch drama. Buriram thought they had won the points in Chiang Rai when Anawin gave them a 90th minute lead. However, three minutes later Chiang Rai salvaged a point via a scrappy goal. Kiatprawut appeared to get the last touch on the ball.

Jay Bothroyd is finally beginning to justify his inflated salary at Muangthong United as his 92nd minute header cancelled out Peerapat's low drive.

Chonburi maintained their unbeaten start to the campaign after they came from behind to draw 2-2 with PTT Rayong. Desmarets and Sanchez were on target to give the Rayong club a 2-0 lead at the interval. Chakrit pulled one back in the 71st minute and Anderson completed the comeback with a 94th minute header.

Division 1

Bangkok FC 4-1 TTM
BBCU 1-2 Phuket
Chiang Mai 4-2 Saraburi
Nakhon Pathom Utd 1-1 Siam Navy

There were two hat-tricks scored as the top half of Division 1 is now only separated by two points.
Bangkok FC are up to second after their 4-1 win over surprise promotion contenders TTM. Jae Min Lee gave the Iron Bulls the lead but they then had Ifran dismissed early in the second half. That sparked Valci Junior into life and the much travelled striker bagged a treble. He now is the division's top scorer with seven goals and he is closely followed by Mark Babo Landry. The Chiang Mai goal getter scored a first half hat-trick as Chiang Mai downed league leaders Saraburi 4-2.

Phuket and Siam Navy joined Saraburi, Bangkok and Korat on 11 points after their respective results yesterday. Wasan's 67th minute header was the winning goal for Phuket as the Islanders finished their match against BBCU with nine men. Chusana's strike ten minutes from time earned Siam Navy a point at Nakhon Pathom.
