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.
