Bangkok United won 2-1 at Ratchaburi to join Buriram United at the top of the Thai League 1 table on Wednesday night.

Brazilian striker Heberty Fernandes opened the scoring in the 55th minute and Anon Amornlerdsak added the other for the Angels in injury time.

Steeven Langil got a consolation goal for the Dragons to cut the deficit in the dying seconds.

After eight matches, Buriram and Bangkok United each have 19 points.

If two or more teams have the same number of points at the end of the season, results among the teams involved will determine their positions.

The match originally took place on Oct 3 when it was suspended after 39 minutes due to a heavy downpour.

Yesterday's game started at the 39th minute with the score at 0-0.

The capital side were the better team and deservedly went ahead with Heberty's fifth league goal of the season.

Bangkok United next visit champions Pathum United on Sunday.

Ratchaburi, meanwhile, are at home to Buriram on the same day.
