Home United lost their second match in row and the second in their opening three matches.
This time it was to Woodlands Wellington as the Rams hit through former Protectors Rosman Sulaiman and their marquee man Khalid Hamdaoui.
The former Moroccan international is proving his worth to the Northern club as this is the third match in a row he has hit the target and how Home United must wish they have somebody like him on their side.
The Protectors have only scored once in three matches despite the numerous chances they have continued to create in matches.
One can say they have not played badly but the game is decided on goals and at this moment they cannot scored to save their skins.
In other matches, Tanjong Pagar drew 1-1 with Harimau Muda and Brunei DPMM beat Courts Young Lions 2-1.
The Jaguars goal was scored by Kamel Ramdani while the Malaysian got their from Asri Mardzuki.
Rosmin Kamis and Shahrazen Said scored for the Brunei side before Pg Sallehuddin Damit was issued his marching orders and the Cubs later pull one back through Sherif El-Masri
