The Thunder Castle opened the scoring at the New I-Mobile Stadium in the 22nd minute when Spanish attacker Carmelo Gonzalez continued his fine scoring form by netting his tenth goal of the campaign, before his compatriot netted three minutes later to hand them a comfortable lead at the break.
Four minutes after the hour mark, Army defender Chaiwat Nak-iem scored an own goal to help Buriram wrap up the three points although they were unable to make any ground on Muangthong, who toiled to a 2-1 triumph over Samut Songkhram at the SCG Stadium.
Phitchitphong Choeichiu netted his first goal of the campaign two minutes after the half-hour mark to put the Twin Qilins in the lead and they were given a boost in the 52nd minute when their opponents were reduced to ten men after Pattana Sokjorhor was sent off.
12 minutes after the hour mark, Sarawut Masuk struck to make it 2-0 and all but kill the contest but the visitors managed to pull one back through a Guy Hubert strike in the 90th minute, although it proved too little too late for Songkhram.
Bangkok Glass continued their resurgent ways with a 3-1 home win against Bangkok United to move up to eighth on the table.
Star striker Chatree Chimtale opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, before netting his second five minutes after the interval to put the Glass Rabbits firmly in control of the tie.
Ekaphan Inthasen then weighed in with a third in the 75th minute to wrap up the three points, although the hosts' fine day at the office was slightly tarnished when they conceded in injury time after Romain Gasmi netted a consolation for their opponents.
Another team to rise up the table were Chainat, who are now sixth after beating Pattaya United 4-2 at the Chainat Stadium.
It took the hosts just six minutes to take the lead thanks to Somjet Sattabud's opener, but Pattaya equalised in the 27th minute through a strike from Nigerian forward Efe Obode.
Nonetheless, Chainat's lead was restored three minutes before halftime when Somjet grabbed his second of the game, and it was soon 3-1 in the 48th minute when Michael Byrne found the back of the net.
Thailand international Sumanya Purisay was next to get in on the act; grabbing his side's fourth 14 minutes later before Pattaya added some respectability to the scoreline when Niweat Siriwong made it 4-2 at the death.
Finally, high-flying Suphanburi moved up to fourth after recording a comfortable 3-1 victory at home to TOT.
The hosts edged ahead in the 31st minute when Bireme Diouf opened the scoring and it was 2-0 five minutes after the break when Wuttichai Tathong found the back of the net.
Nine minutes after the hour mark, Wuttichai grabbed his second of the game - and sixth of the season - before Lee Jun-ki gave TOT something to smile about when he pulled one back for them two minutes from time.
