Thai Premier League – Match 5
Goals: Cleiton (88′)
SCG Muangthong United defeated Sisaket FC by way of an 88th minute winner from former BEC Tero forward Cleiton Silva. It was the second straight game where Cleiton scored the game-winning goal, and the third straight shut-out for Kawin. Like we’ve seen in previous matches, Muangthong were able to maintain possession well, but were unable to capitalize on that possession. Even Cleiton’s goal came from a sloppy turnover by Sisaket. That said, Sisaket’s goalkeeper Narong Wongthongkam did produce some amazing saves, most notably his stop on Datsakorn Thonglao’s header in the first half:
Unless FA Cup or Toyota Cup matches have yet to be scheduled for March, Muangthong United are looking at a huge 3 week break. As it stands, their next match will be an away fixture against Suphanburi FC on April 4th.
