Buriram United coach Arthur Papas praised the resilience of his men after they rallied from a goal down to edge hosts Lamphun Warriors in a Thai League 1 encounter on Sunday night.
Defending champions Buriram found themselves in arrears after 51 minutes when Sarawuth Inpaen struck for Lamphun but Thailand striker Supachai Chaided equalised for the Thunder Castle in the 64th minute.
Buriram's new signing, Brazilian striker Guiherme Bissoli, showed his worth to the second-placed club by delivering the winner at 72 minutes.
Papas said: "Lamphun were doing very well before the break, so it wasn't an easy game for us.
"We conceded a goal early in the second half, but we knew we could come back and win game."
In another Thai League 1 match on Sunday night, Port picked up three points with 4-0 thrashing of Police Tero in an away tussle.
Barros Tardeli put the Port 1-0 lead in the 14th minute, before Chalie Clough added the second goal at 32 minutes.
Teerasak Poeiphimai had a brace in the second half, netting in the 75th and 85th minutes to complete the rout.
In other games, Trat were held 1-1 by 10-man Sukhothai and hosts Uthai Thani shared a point with Chiang Rai United after a 1-1 draw.
