Etoile championship take blow as Home win 1-0 in crucial match-up

Home United has won a crucial match-up against fellow challengers Etoile FC that could have derail the hopes of their rival.

With the win, Home United are equal on point with Etoile FC in the table but remain third as the French side have a better goal difference.

However, the biggest winner was a team that was not even playing; Tampines Rovers.

The Eastern giant can now open up a 4-point gap between them and their rivals - before next week match-up against Etoile FC - when they play Young Lions tomorrow.

But Home United may be the hidden threat Tampines Rovers should fear.

The Protectors displayed great teamwork and motivation in a game without heroes as they closed down the French side and kept them at bay despite the pressure put forward by the French for much of the match.

And let not forget it is the fasting month so this make it a greater effort.

Shahril Ishak had scored the winner after 20 minutes to make it Home 11th win from their last 12 matches.
