Bangkok United netted twice in the second half to record a 3-1 home victory over Chonburi in a Thai League 1 clash last night.
After the Sharks' Channarong Promsrikaew had cancelled out an early strike by Mahmoud Eid, the Angels saw Heberty Fernandes and Pokklaw Anan find the net after the break to give Bangkok United their 15th win of the season.
Port also shifted gears in the second half of their home game against Lampang last night, winning the battle 3-1.
Teerasak Poeiphimai (52), Negueba (62) and Frans Putros (90+2) scored for Port while Weerayut Srivichai netted Lampang's only goal after 78 minutes.
In Saturday night's late matches, the Lamphun Warriors could only manage a goalless draw with visiting PT Prachuap.
Lamphun had a chance in the 25th minute when Anan Yodsangwan fired an Aung Thu pass wide.
After Prachuap's Samuel Rosa was denied by Lamphun goalkeeper Nont Muangngarm in the second half, Lamphun saw a shot by Mohammed Osman warded off by Prachuap custodian Kwanchai Suklom.
Willian Popp scored the winner for Muang Thong United who edged Police Tero 1-0 at home.
The Kirins had found the net in the first half but a VAR check revealed that Eric Johana had scored from an off-side position.
Muang Thong controlled most of the game and Willian hit the bar early in the second half before making amends at the hour mark.
