Thai Premier League – Match 17
Goals: [MTU] Mario (46′); Kasidech (68′)
SCG Muangthong United pressure for the top spot in the league with a win over 17th place Saraburi FC. The first half was tense and methodical, with Muangthong carefully searching forward and Saraburi sitting back and looking to launch a counter attack. Muangthong had a number of chances hit the post or get cleared off the line in an exciting first half. Mario Djurovski scored early in the second half with a volleyed lob over the Saraburi keeper. After the opening goal, Saraburi surged forward looking for the equalizer. Kawin took Man of the Match honors as he made save after save to keep MTU in the lead. Substitute Kasidech made a nice run and a calm finish to put the game out of reach for the visitors.
Two great goals and an outstanding performance from Kawin put MTU in 1st, but Buriram United have the chance to reclaim the top spot with a win or draw against BEC Tero tonight.
