Kirins keen on paying back Thai Honda
Although their match in Thai League 1 tonight has become meaningless, SCG Muang Thong United want to exact revenge on Thai Honda.
Holders Muang Thong have lost the title to Buriram United and are assured of second place, while promoted side Thai Honda will make a quick return to the second tier next season.
Thai Honda stunned the Kirins 1-0 at home earlier in the season and Muang Thong coach Totchtawan Sripan wants to avenge the shock loss in tonight’s clash at SCG Stadium.
“It is an important match for us because we lost to them earlier in the season,’’ Tochtawan said.
“It was a shocking result. We will be playing at home and we have to beat them to boost our confidence ahead of the League Cup final [on Nov 22].”
However, the coach said he would rotate his squad as the team will play Bangkok Glass in their last league game of the season this weekend and face Chiang Rai United in the League Cup showdown next Wednesday.
“We have to keep our players fit and fresh for the League Cup final,” he said.
In tonight’s other T1 game, Chiang Rai are likely to give chances to their fringe players when they meet Police Tero. Chiang Rai will also play in the FA Cup final against Bangkok United on Nov 25.
Meanwhile, Muang Thong yesterday signed a three-year MoU with Panyapiwat Institute of Management wherein the two sides will exchange knowledge in football and education.
