Siam Navy sink to Division One after loss (28/01/2012)



Siam Navy were relegated after losing 2-0 at Sri Racha on the final day of the 2011 Thai Premier League season yesterday.

Siam Navy now join Sri Racha and Khon Kaen in Division One as the other two relegation contenders TOT SC and SCG Samut Songkhram both won.

TOT SC edged BEC Tero Sasana 3-2 and SCG secured a 3-1 win at Army United.

At Suzuki stadium, hosts Sri Racha sent Navy down with goals from Attapong Nooprom after 12 minutes and Cristiano Lopez in the 50th minute.

At Army stadium, Chaiwut Wattana gave SCG the lead after just two minutes but Thanakorn Dangthong equalised soon after.

SCG then went ahead again after 22 minutes through Napat Thumrongsupakorn as Samut Songkhram took a 2-1 lead at half-time.

Napat then added another five minutes after the interval as the Mackerels won comfortably.

At Thephatsadin stadium, TOT SC raced into a 2-0 lead early in the second half with goals from Kone Mohamed and Prakit Deeprom.

Mohamed then gave TOT a 3-0 lead after 75 minutes but just as it seemed that TOT were heading for an easy win, BEC gave them a scare when Teerathep Winothai scored twice in the last six minutes.

However, TOT fended off BEC's late charge and held on for the win.

At Mae Fah Luang stadium, hosts Chiang Rai United held champions Buriram PEA to a 2-2 draw.

Wasant Natasan and Gilson Dias scored for Chiang Rai while Buriram PEA scored through Suchao Nutnum and an own goal from Pichai Preechachao.

In the other game, Pattaya United edged Muang Thong United 1-0 with Ittipol Poosup hitting the winner after 58 minutes.
