Bangkok Glass down Sisaket to move level at TPL summit

Bangkok Glass moved level on points with leaders Army United at the top of the Thai Premier League on Saturday after beating Sisaket 3-2 at the Leo Stadium.

The Glass Rabbits entered the game on the back of a four-game unbeaten start to 2015, and were looking to keep their good run going in a clash that was rearranged from the opening round of the season due to their AFC Champions League qualifier against Beijing Guoan.

They did get off to the better start on Saturday and Chatree Chimtale put them ahead with a calm finish four minutes after the half-hour mark, before Leandro Oliveira doubled their advantage from the penalty spot in the 43rd minute.

Kaneung Buransook did manage to pull one back for the visitors with a well-struck freekick four minutes into the second half, but Darko Tasevski put the result beyond doubt when he added a third for the Glass Rabbits with three minutes remaining.

Nonetheless, Sisaket did salvage some pride at the end when they reduced the deficit once more through a Kittipong Rongrak header in injury-time, although the hosts ultimately held out for the win.

The result sees Bangkok Glass move level on points with Army at the top of the table, with both sides in possession of a two-point lead over closest challengers Suphanburi and Muangthong United.
