The big one

The quilins take on the sharks this Sunday in a crucial game.

At the Thunderdome, there is tension in the air. This could be the six pointer that decides who walks away with the Premier League title this season. With MT undefeated at home, and Chonburi trailing by just one point, the visitors will know that they must take the game to the home team to stand a real chance of getting the result they need. To do that, Chonburi will be looking for more of the fantastic and voluminous support they have received all season. But with demand for tickets sky-rocketing at the Thunderdome, the club are rushing to complete a new stand in time to accommodate the number of fans who wish to attend the match.

Football history has shown us that it's wrong to pinpoint such six pointers as the deciding factor in the title race, but with just three games remaining after this, the scope for further slip ups is quite narrow. Chonburi have no choice but to come out playing offensively, the Qilins' boss Robert Procter has already pledged that United will do the same. Neither side is likely to be happy with a draw.

Keep your eyes on this one.

Who to watch: Piyachat and Leesaw must be brimming for more action after their respective goals last week. Chonburi's Kone Mohamed and English/Welshman Michael Byrne feature on the league top scorers list.

What to watch: Muangthong's back four have given very little away at home all season and the two centre backs have looked solid on every occasion, but this could be their toughest test for some time.

I call: A one goal victory for Muangthong. Probably 2 - 1
