Bangkok United and Port Stumble in Thai League 1 Title Race

Bangkok United faced a setback in their Thai League 1 title aspirations with a goalless draw against Sukhothai. The result puts them just two points ahead of defending champions Buriram United, who had a chance to overtake them in their match against Trat.

Port also stumbled, settling for a 1-1 draw against bottom-placed PT Prachuap. Port’s coach, Rangsan Vivatchaichok, acknowledged luck played a role as an own goal in the second half spared Port from a defeat they narrowly avoided.

PT Prachuap took an early lead with South Korean striker Jeong Woo-Guen finding the net in the 19th minute. Port managed to equalize in the 57th minute when Prachuap’s Airton Tirabassi inadvertently headed a Pakorn Prempak free-kick into his own goal.

Rangsan expressed gratitude for the point, recognizing the absence of their suspended striker, Barros Tardeli, impacted their offensive performance. Despite PT Prachuap’s strong desire for three points, Rangsan deemed the result satisfactory given the circumstances.

PT Prachuap’s coach, Sasom Pobprasert, acknowledged the challenge of facing a formidable opponent like Port, highlighting their team’s defensive strength and considering the one point gained as a positive outcome.
