A resurgent Home United defeated Gombak United 2-0 to close the gap at the top to four points as Leaders Etoile FC fall to a 0-1 defeat against Albirex Niigata (S).
Singapore international Shi Jiayi fired in the opener for the Protectors before newly-recruited Korean Jun Woo Keun notched the second goal to kill off the Bulls.
For Leaders Etoile FC, it was disappointing outing as their defence was once again breached with Kazuki Kobayashi netted the all-deciding goal and this time the French side failed to breach their opponent defence in return.
That mean the White Swans, along Gombak United, are the only sides to have successfully kept out the French attack twice this season and it impact could have a say at the end of the season.
