Geylang United have won their fourth match in a row to be in shock position to challenge for the S-league title with 1/3 of the season gone.
However, they were lucky to get that win as the White Swans had taken the lead and until the sending off of Keisuke Matsui, the Eagles did not look like drawing let alone winning.
Afterall their goals came in the last 5 minutes of the game with Rastislav Belicak and Hafiz Rahim getting them after Tatsuro Inui had score for the White Swans.
Not that it matter to the Eagles as they have now collected 18 points - to be only 3 points behind leaders Tampines Rovers.
On the same night, champions SAFFC defeated Woodlands Wellington 3-1 at the Choa Chu Kang Stadium.
Their goals came from Federico Martinez, John Wilkinson and a Woodlands Wellington own goal while the Rams sole goal came from Kazuki Yoshino.
