The Sharks, who are guaranteed a runners-up finish in the league behind Muangthong United, took the lead on the half-hour mark when Noppanon Kachaplayuk found the back of the net.

However, things soon turned comical for the visitors as they handed Osotspa an equaliser just two minutes later when Fode Bangaly Diakite turned the ball into his own net, before goalkeeper Sinthaweechai Hathairattanakool netted an own-goal of his own just before the break.

Eight minutes into the second half, Namibia international Lazarus Kaimbi added a third to wrap up the win and consolidate their place in the top five, as there is now no way 6th-placed Esan United can catch them with one game to go.
