Goals: [MTU] Chananan (3′); Piyaphon (25′) [OS] Ganu (20′)

SCG Muangthong United rounded out their busy week with a win at home against Osotspa Saraburi. Chananan Pombuppha opened the scoring early in the match with his second goal of the season, this time against his former club. Osotspa levelled with a free kick goal that was misjudged by young keeper Jakree Nimnuan in just his second start for MTU. Piyaphon then netted the game winner just 5 minutes later off of a loose ball just outside Osotspa’s 6-yard box. The second half saw a number of chances for both sides, but neither team managed to break through.

Muangthong now have a week to rest before heading up north to face Chiangrai United next Saturday.

SCG Muangthong United climb to 5th place in the TPL with a 1-4 victory over Navy FC in Sattahip on Wednesday night. MTU did well in the first half, putting pressure on Navy and scoring 3 unanswered goals before the halftime break. Passing was much better and they made the most of their chances.

In the second half Navy came out in a fury, owning much of the possession and causing trouble for the Krilins’ defense. Although Navy would get on the scoreboard in the 53rd minute, Wuttichai added a goal in extra time to close out the evening.

It was a night of firsts for two MTU players. Chananan Pombuppha scored his first goal for the club, and goalkeeper Jakree Nimnuan had his first minutes in net, filling in for an injured Kawin. He made a few big saves in the match but struggled to clear the ball on set pieces.

Muangthong continue their busy stretch with their 3rd match this week, at home against Osotspa Saraburi on Saturday night.
