Although the result allowed the Thunder Castle to move three points clear at the top of the table, coach Scott Cooper is likely to be displeased with the way his charges failed to make the most of their numerical superiority.

Following a goalless first half, the tide turned in Buriram's favour after their opponents were reduced to ten men in the 68th minute; Leandro dos Santos received a red card for a last-man foul on Javier Patino.

However, the Glass Rabbits held firm for the remainder of the match to earn a share of the spoils.

Third-placed Chonburi were also had to settle for a point after playing out a 1-1 draw at Army United.

The Sharks were dealt a blow early on when they had Fode Bangaly Diakite sent off after just ten minutes, but the hosts were also reduced to ten men in the 38th minute when Chaiwat Nak-eim saw red for a foul on the edge of the box.

From the resultant freekick, Chakrit Buathong stepped up and fired home a sweet strike to put his side in the lead, but it was not to be for the visitors as Danakorn Dangthong netted just before the break, which ultimately proved enough to force the draw.

Osotspa Saraburi are up to eighth on the table after recording a 2-1 home win over Pattaya United.

After both sides failed to open the scoring in the opening 45, Chananan Pombuppha struck in the 61st minute to hand the hosts the lead, before Kosawat Wongwailikit made it 2-0 seven minutes later.

The Dolphins did manage to pull one back six minutes from time through an effort from South African striker Makhosonke Bhengu, but it proved to be too little too late as Osotspa held on for maximum points.

In Saturday's final game, Chiangrai United held high-flying Suphanburi to a 0-0 draw.
