Just three days after booking their place in the Thai FA Cup final with a 5-2 win over Police United in the semi-finals, the Glass Rabbits returned to league action at the Leo Stadium and took the lead after just ten minutes when Teeratep Winothai opened the scoring.
The Thailand international struck again just four minutes later for his fifth goal in his last four outings, before Suphasek Kaikaew made it 3-0 three minutes after the hour mark.
Hironori Saruta then added a fourth for Glass in the 76th minute to put the result beyond doubt, but TOT did manage to pull one back five minutes later when Phudit Niamkong found the back of the net.
But the night belonged to the hosts and they wrapped things up a minute from time when 18-year-old midfielder Thanasit Sriphala broke free to score his first goal for the club.
The result was also enough to take the Glass Rabbits up to fourth on the table, although Suphanburi could overtake them with a win over Muangthong United on Sunday.
Elsewhere on Saturday, Samut Songkhram climbed three places up to 13th after obtaining a valuable point from a 0-0 draw at home to Osotspa Saraburi.
Finally, Chainat left it late to beat Bangkok United 2-1 in a clash of two mid-table teams at the Khao Plong Stadium.
Ratchapol Nawanno celebrated his recent call-up to the Thailand national team by breaking the deadlock for the hosts in the 20th minute, but Bangkok United responded three minutes after the half-hour mark through a Milos Bogunovic effort.
However, Chainat were awarded a penalty in the final minute of the game, allowing on-loan Japanese midfielder Masahito Noto to step up and fire home from 12 yards to hand them all three points.
