BEC Tero 2-1 Sisaket
Chiang Rai Utd 2-0 Air Force
Ratchaburi 1-2 Osotspa Saraburi
Police 1-2 Chainat
TOT 2-0 Singh Tarua

There was a first reality check for Singh Tarua and Ratchaburi as they suffered their first losses of the season. Tarua were without their talisman Leandro and there were to be no goals and no points for the league leaders at TOT. Takahiro Kawamura gave TOT the lead after his side had been awarded a softish penalty. Prakit cut in from the right to double that lead in the 32nd minute. Tarua huffed and puffed but never looked like getting back into the contest in the remaining hour.  An own goal three minutes from time was Ratchaburi's undoing. A shot from the right by Narong gave Osotspa the lead midway through the second period. Douglas levelled from the spot ten minutes later but Osotspa regained the lead when a deflection off Sila's knee crept into the bottom corner of the net.

A double apiece from Djurovski and Teerasil sent Muangthong to the top of the league. They beat PTT Rayong 4-1 and as a consequence PTT slipped into the relegation placings.

2-1 victories for Chonburi and BEC Tero moved the duo to within one point of top spot. The Brazilian boys, Anderson dos Santos and Thiago Cunha, were responsible for Chonburi's goals while Welcome and Shimoji were on target for BEC Tero.

Bangkok Glass' perfect home record was smashed after they lost 3-2 to Army. A Chaiwat header and two from Raphael Botti earned Army their first ever TPL success over Bangkok Glass.

At the bottom, Songkhla edged out Bangkok United 1-0 to move out of the drop zone. The winning goal came courtesy of two Chonburi loanees with Kraikitti prodding home Rachanon's cross. Air Force still can't buy a point on the road and it was another player with a Chonburi connection that bagged both goals for Chiang Rai United. Leandro Assumpcao spent the second half of last season on loan at Chonburi.

Only 1,125 spectators turned up to watch another home loss for Police. Lee Hyun Jin's deflected cross gave Chainat the lead before the Korean turned provider cutting back for Sumanya to double the lead. For the third home game running Police scored a consolation deep into injury time when Tana's shot found the bottom corner.

The mid-table clash between Suphanburi and Buriram ended all square. Luizinho gobbled up a rebound in the 7th minute but Suphanburi allowed Buriram back into the game as they gifted Patino a 37th minute equalizer.
