Bangkok – Soumahoro Yaya‘s injury-time winner fired Muang Thong United to be the Thailand Premier League Champion with one game to spare. 

Yaya scored both goals in United’s 2-1 win over Osotspa M-150 at Thunderdome stadium but it was his second effort that sent the home crowd delirious just when it seemed his side were heading for a draw.

The Ivory Coast player fired Muang Thong ahead in the 12th minute but the visitors made it 1-1 before the interval through Jakkrit Boonkham.

Muang Thong piled on the pressure in the second half but, despite all their efforts, they could not breach the Osotspa defence.

MT’s Teerasil Dangda had a goal ruled out 10 minutes from the end and the game then entered six minutes of stoppage time.

The home crowd roared on their heroes and Yaya answered in perfect style when he rifled home a shot with his left foot to secure the title.

The trophy will be presented next week when Muang Thong entertain BEC Tero Sasana at Thunderdome stadium.

The victory rendered Chonburi’s 1-0 victory over Navy Rayong meaningless.

Kone Mohamed scored for the Sharks at Rayong stadium but it was not enough for them to win the title.

At Chalermpakiat Klong 6 stadium, hosts Bangkok Glass FC defeated TTM-Samut Sakhon 2-0 thanks to goals from Ajayi Samuel and Thanat Wongsupaluk.

BEC Tero Sasana enjoyed a come-from-behind 3-1 home win over Thai Port FC.

The visitors went ahead in the 33rd minute through Edvaldo Pereira before Wuthichai Thathong (two) and Kittipol Papungar turned the tables to grab all three points.

At Supachalasai stadium, TOT FC defeated Pattaya United 3-1. TOT FC went to 2-0 up through Madengue Emmanuel and Suchao Nutnum before Santi Chaipuek pulled one back for Pattaya from the penalty spot. Kittipong Moonpong rounded off the scoring for TOT two minutes from time.

Sri Racha FC defeated disappointing defending champions Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) 2-0 at Sirindhorn stadium. Japanese player Saruta Hironori scored twice late on to sink PEA.

However, Sri Racha are still in danger of relegation and need to beat Osotspa M-150 next Sunday to have a chance of staying up.

At Chulalongkorn stadium, Chula United grabbed a point following a 0-0 draw with fellow strugglers Bangkok United.

Chula United face Pattaya United in a crunch match for both teams next Sunday while Bangkok United tackle Samut Songkhram.

Samut Songkhram consigned Nakhom Pathom to relegation yesterday with a 1-1 draw. Nakhon Pathom became the first team to be relegated to the first division. They will be joined by two others next weekend.
