Buriram Utd missed the chance to increase their lead at the top of the table, following their 0-0 draw against Army Utd in atrocious conditions, on Sunday. Twenty four hours earlier Muang Thong Utd, their closest rivals, had come from behind to scrape a 1-1 draw with relegation candidates Samut Songkhram. However, it still looks likely that the north eastern side will go on to win the title, as it would require an incredible set of results over the final five weeks of the season to deny them the league trophy.
Third placed Chonburi thumped the luckless Songkhla Utd 5-1, with Thiago Cunha netting two in his first start since returning from a long term injury. Leandro Assumpcao, Samuel Ajayi and Therdsak Chaiman (penalty) were the other scorers. Former Shark Darko Recocevic was on target for the visitors.
Pattaya Utd strengthened their chances of maintaining TPL status next year by recording a 3-0 home win against the erratic Chainat. This was the Eastern Seaboard club’s fourth win in five outings and they do seem to be picking up a headful of steam at exactly the right time. This is just as well, as close rivals Chiang Rai Utd won 4-2 on their travels and all the other teams around them have games in hand.
In the weekend’s other games, Police Utd equalised with the last kick at Osotspa and ten man Bangkok Glass came from behind to earn a point against Bangkok Utd.
The ToT v Suphanburi fixture was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
