Chula-Sinthana Current Record: PLD: 11, W:3, D:1, L:7, F:11, A:19, GD: -8, PTS: 10
Current Position: 14th
High Point: Back to back wins at the beginning of the season, and especially the impressive away win to Krung Thai Bank
Low Point: 5-1 defeat to title favourites BEC, simply not good enough to get thumped if you want to hang around this division
The Season So Far:First few weeks of the season, Chula looked more than capable of staying in the top flight. They had more or less a great start to the season, but come week 7, they have started to struggle, they must grind out some wins to pull clear of the relegation zone. So far, it looks likely that a return to Division One is on the cards.
Coke-Bangpra Current Record: PLD: 12, W:3, D:6, L:3, F:10, A:9, GD: +3, PTS: 15
Current Position: 8th
High Point: Draw in the derby against big brother Chonburi and the moral boasting 1-1 draw with title favourites BEC
Low Point: Two defeats against Chula and Customs Department, if these vital games were won, they would have spread a bigger difference between them and they would be looking up the table rather than looking over their shoulders.
The Season So Far:Great first season, so far mid table, but must keep on winning and picking up points on their travels to maintain their status in this division and stay clear of a relegation battle which they could get pulled into.
Customs Department Current Record: PLD: 11, W:2, D:2, L:7, F:6, A:12, GD: -6, PTS: 8
Current Position: 15th
High Point: A welcome start to the season beating Royal Thai Army 3-1, and then things looked good to build upon, but not quite happened.
Low Point: Seem to always get beaten by the odd goal, they battle hard, but seem to have no luck
The Season So Far: A quick return to Division One looks likely. Failed to taste victory since week 6, way back at the end of March. Must start to get points on the board to move up the table. Battled hard to beat Coke-Bangpra who have been the surprise so far, so it was a welcome 3 points. Other than that they defeated hapless Royal Thai Army, who seem doomed.
Krung Thai Bank Current Record: PLD: 10, W:5, D:3, L:2, F:14, A:8, GD: +6, PTS: 18
Current Position: 5th
High Point: Resounding victory of Beijing in the Champions League
Low Point: Home defeat to lowly Chula-Sinthana, struggle to capitalise against weaker opposition.
The Season So Far: They know where the back of the net is, but unfortunately that counts for both ends, where goals are leaked rather to often, especially in the ACL. Can hold their own against the might of the league in BEC and Chonburi, but tend to struggle against the lesser lights. Could be a surprise title winner??
