SCG Muangthong United maintain their three point lead at the top of the table wiht a 1-0 away match win at Sukhothai F.C.
SCG Muangthong United were without star midfielder Chanathip, and Adisak Kraisron and Naoaki Aoyama were nursing injuries, though available as subs if needed.
The lone goal of the match came when Cleiton Silva slotted home the penalty shot after a handball.
Sukhothai F.C. had many scoring opportunities and hit the crossbar three times. Moreover, a penalty awarded to Sukhothai after Teerathon's foul was saved by Kawin. The Muangthong United keeper had a remarkable game, making several astounding saves. Undoubtedly he was the man of the match for Muangthong United.
The Sukhothai FC attack was relentless, and Coach Totchtawan Sripan subbed in Aoyama and Adisak to bring in some fresh legs in the last few minutes. The decision might prove a fateful one as Adisak was quickly reinjured and had to be stretchered off.
The Kirin are in action again in just three days when they host Port FC in the next match of the Toyota League Cup semifinal playoff.
