Third place in the 2022-23 Thai League is one step closer after tonight's 2-0 victory.

The Kirin were shooting for all three points, and momentum was in their favour, coming off six straight victories, while The King Cobras were without centre-back Joshua Grommen and winless in four games.

Goals came from Brazilian forward Willian Popp, and attacking midfielder Sardor Mirzaev from Uzbekistan.

The Kirin are looking to move above Port FC in the table, and a top-three finish is a goal the entire squad has embraced.

Thailand's football season will wrap up on May 12th when Muangtong United welcomes Ratchaburi FC at the Thunderdome Stadium.
