National striker Teerathep 'Leesaw' Winothai broke a goal-scoring drought last weekend when he netted BEC Tero Sasana's opening goal to beat Suphan Buri 5-0 in the Thailand Premier League.


Teerathep, top scorer in the 23rd SEA Games in the Philippines last year, had been struggling to find form recently and had not scored in the first 14 matches of the season.


He admitted it was a great relief to score.


"I did not know how long my drought was going to go on for but once I scored my confidence came flooding back and the whole team played well," said Teerathep.


BEC Tero are now in fifth place with 20 points from 15 matches, which is six points behind leaders Tobacco Monopoly.
