The killer came from Stags old boy Qiu Li as he scored the opener from the spot. After that, Firdaus Idros doubled the lead as the Stags had to go for the attack.
In another match, the Warriors make full advantage of the slip by the Stags as they defeated Gombak United 2-1.
Mislav Karoglan scored a brace while Fareez Farhan reply for the Bulls.
With this results, the uniform teams looked firm favourite for the championship as Etoile FC are hit by the five points penalty and a congested fixture list while the Stags are troubled by poor form, weak squad and a long injury list.
The uniform sides though have none of that problems and the transfer window have allowed them to strengthen as well as they recruit to bolster their already powerful squad.
