The Thai champions will aim to maintain their 100 per cent winning record in Group H when they play host to last season's beaten ACL finalists

Buriram United coach Attapol Buspakom is confident his side can maintain their 100 per cent record ahead of Wednesday's AFC Champions League (ACL) home clash with Jeonbok Motors.

The Thai outfit have been the surprise performer so far in the 2012 ACL after shock wins over the Chinese and Japanese champions Guangzhou Evergrande and Kashiwa Reysol respectively.

The Thai Premier League champions could put themselves in a great position to progress to the final 16 with a win over Jeonbuk, who are struggling after consecutive 5-1 defeats.

“This will be an important match for both teams as we want three points to secure the lead and Jeonbok need the first point as well. They are the strong side and we won’t be careless for sure," Buspakom told reporters ahead of the game.

“Their Brazillian midfielder, Eninho, is the dangerous one. Some of their midfielders are very seasoned. We have to ensure that they’re locked out."

On his own side, he added: “We’re in superb condition right now. Teerathon Bunmathan will be ready for this match as well.

“We’re less experienced in matches at this level, but we believe in our solid teamwork and dangerous attack. We’re more than ready now”

Meanwhile Jeonbuk boss Lee Heung-Sil said: “This is a crucial game for us. Our players will give it all as we really need to win.

"We lost our first two games in ACL but we have to get over it. There's still so many matches to play in at this stage.

“Buriram has both great attacking and defending but we won’t focus on single player. We’ll take them as whole.”
