Having lost their previous four matches, and twelve in total this season, Pattaya United players and fans will have been more than satisfied to return from the long trip north last Sunday with a valuable point following a hard fought 0-0 result with Chiangrai United.

The draw still leaves Pattaya stuck firmly at the root of the table on seven points but with Bangkok United and Ratchaburi also failing to win last weekend, it kept the Dolphins in touch with their rivals in the dog fight to avoid relegation.

United will hope to pick up more points over the next couple of weeks as the face back-to-back home games against Police United on June 30 and Samut Songkhram FC on July 6.

At the top of the table, Buriram United maintained their lead over their closest rivals as they thumped Bangkok United 6-2 at home while Muang Thong United remain in second following a 3-1 victory over BEC Tero Sasana.  Chonburi FC slipped up as they were beaten 2-1 at Samut Songkhram but remain in third place.
