With this results, five teams - Home United, Tampines Rovers, SAFFC, Albirex Niigata (S), Etoile FC - are in with a shot of the championship.
Etoile FC, before this win, had only a slim chance as they had been docked 5 points for the Hougang incident but now as long as they win their matches in hand they can closed the gap to 6 points and that will be boast to their morale considering their problem.
Tampines Rovers, whose chance took a dip a few week ago, took full advantage as they defeated Courts Young Lions 1-0 at Jalan Besar to go top of the table.
Aliff Shafaein got the winner.
But it was not the same story for SAFFC as they falter against Hougang United as the Cheetahs shock them by walking away from Choa Chu Kang with all three points.
Carlos Delgado had given the Cheetah an early lead and the Hougang side managed to starve off the 8-time champions to give them their first ever win against the Warriors.
In another match, Woodlands Wellington defeated Balestier Khalsa 1-0.
Guntur Djafril got the winner for the Rams
