SCG Muangthong United played out a comfortable 3-1 win over Raja Navy FC in the ROUND OF 32 match of the Chang FA Cup at the SCG Stadium, July 29, 2015. The outcome of the game was helped by Cleiton Silva, who for the second time this season scored 3 goals in a game. Two of Cleiton's goals came from penalty shots following fouls as the RAJA Navy defense scrambled to contain the attack. The first goal in particular came after Teerasil was charging at the net when brought down from behind.
The goal that was not from the penalty came about when a RAJA Navy FC defender made a weak back pass to his keeper, allowing Silva to jump on the error and score.
Muangthong United played without central defender DJ Kim who is recovering from an injury
sustained to his head during the match with Gulf Saraburi on Saturday. Coach Talajic, however, expects "DJ" to be ready for the big match on the weekend when SCG Muangthong travel to play Buriram United, a team they are currently tied with for first place in the Thai Premier League.
Talajic also said about the Buriram match, "This is a big celebration of Thai football....we go there to get 3 points, to play good football, we have to play better than we have all this half of the season..." Talajic confirmed his squad played at a reduced pace in the match against Raja Navy in order to ensure everyone would be ready.
