Etoile FC are back at the top after defeating Gombak United 1-0 at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
It virtually mean Tampines Rovers slim hopes of winning the 2010 S-league are gone as the Stags are now four points behind the leaders with only three matches left.
Etoile FC will have to lose two of their remaining matches for the Stags to take advantage and even the most biased Stags fan looking through rose-tinted glasses cannot expect such a scenario.
The French may drop one match but it is hard to image two.
For Home United, they can only hope as the fate of the championship is not in their hand and as long as Etoile FC continue to win, they can do nothing except match the French club results.
Matthias Verschave had scored early in the second period to give the French their winner.
