Following Sunday's 2-2 draw with Police United, Buriram are currently eight points behind leaders Muangthong United and are only in second place due to a better goal difference than Chonburi and BEC Tero Sasana.

And with just over half the season to go, Thunder Castle coach Attaphol Puspakom has moved to rejuvenate his side by bringing in six new faces, including brothers Marko and Dordije Cetkovic, who are nephews of Real Madrid legend Predrag Mijatovic.

Both players have been capped by Montenegro and Marko, a 26-year-old midfielder, has been called "the Lionel Messi of Montenegro" in the past, while his brother Dordije, who is three years older, played in the German Bundesliga with Hansa Rostock back in the 2007/08 season.

Buriram have also landed former United States U-17 international Anthony Ampaipitakwong, a Thai-American midfielder from Major League Soccer side San Jose Earthquakes and Bunyodkor striker Anvar Rajabov, who has been capped twice by Uzbekistan.

Rounding off the new arrivals at the Thunder Castle Stadium are Thai players Chalermsuk Kaewsuktae and Arthit Boonyachinda.
