SCG Muangthong United suffer their fourth straight loss, once again at home, and once again after dominating the match. Despite having the better share of possession, 11 corner balls, 19 free kicks, yellow cards for time wasting, and a penalty call, the Kirin lost 3-2 to Ubon UMT United at the SCG Stadium.
With Xisco Jiminez still injured, and Heberty not eligible to play until the second half of the season, the Kirin seem to be struggling without a second starting striker. The Kirin looked to be off to a flying start with a corner kick and free kick all within the first three minutes of play, but then an Ubon counter attacked brought shock and silence to the stadium with a quick goal.
The Kirin dominated the first half, forcing corners and free kicks to go their way, and keeping the ball in the Ubon half almost exclusively. Yet despite the high pressure, free kicks, corners, and excellent possession, the Kirin were forced to end the first half a goal down without being able to put anything in the net.
The second half started with the same high pressure match from both teams. The Kirin once again began to dominate the play, and a strong save was needed from Ubon's keeper Phonganot on Peerapat's well hit attempt early on.
The pressure paid off for the Kirin when Teerasil was upended at the edge of the box and a penalty called. Theerathon made no mistake, and heading into the 60th minute the score as tied 1-1.
Unbelievably, the Kirin repeated the horrors of their last match with Port F.C. who respond within a minute, also after a penalty call. A corner ball lifted long allowed a free header and the go ahead goal for Ubon! This was followed by a second goal a few moments later.
SCG Muangthong United were to show the qualities of champions, however, by not letting up, and a late goal at the 93rd minute gave fans hope that the team would soon be back to winning form. TheKirin pressed hard into the closing minutes, and to all eyes present SCG Muangthong United were the better team.
