Muangthong United suffered their first Thai League defeat of the season with a 2-0 loss at home to Port FC.
With club owner Madam Nualphan Lamsam in the dugout, Port FC dished out some fantastic counter-attacking football to silence the partisan crowd through an own goal from Peerapat Notchaiya and Sergio Suarez.
Tawan Sripan’s charges seemed to lack the usual energy in their play and went behind in the eighth minute when Peerapat headed into his own goal off a Port FC free kick.
Jackson Coelho had a great chance to level proceedings just before the half-time whistle but his low shot was put out for a corner by Port FC’s goalkeeper.
Things took a turn for the worse in the second half when a good break by Port saw Suarez finish off a lovely move in the 66th minute to make it two on the night for the visitors.
Muangthong threw on Siroch Chattong but despite the giant forward’s introduction, the home team never got going and allowed Port FC to claim a well-deserved win to go top of the standings.
