Coach Makoto Teguramori has admitted that his BG Pathum United need to improve both their offence and defence after the Rabbits could only manage a 1-1 draw in a Thai League 1 game at PT Prachuap on Saturday night.

Prachuap struck first in the 56th minute through Korean player Jeong Woo-Geun before Singaporean defender Irfan Fandi equalised for Pathum seven minutes from time.

Teguramori said that both team were cautious in their approach as they were "under new coaches. I was hoping for a victory here, but would have to be content with the draw for now.

"We knew Prachuap are good in defence and dangerous on counter-attacks. I told the team to play carefully but we still conceded an easy goal. Prachuap defended vigorously but we should have scored more."

Prachuap coach Sasom Pobprasert said: "Pathum are a top team so a draw against them is not a bad result for us."

Also on Saturday night, hosts Khon Kaen United beat Chonburi 1-0 with Chitsanuphong Choti grabbing the winner in the first-half injury time, and hosts Nakhon Pathom United, reduced to 10 men after 83 minutes, let Ratchaburi record a 1-0 win.
