Home United have finally opened their account in the 2013 S-league season
They defeated second-placed Tanjong Pagar United 3-0 to achieve their first win of the season and it will no doubt bring relief to their Korean coach Paul Lee who has been under the microscope since reports emerged that he had driven away his assistant Akihiro Nakamura.
And with results not going his way, doubts were cast if the Home management had done the correct thing to retain the Korean last season after a disaster 2012 season which looked to repeat itself in 2013.
Jordan Webb, Sirina Camara and Lee Kwan Woo got the goals.
In other matches, both matches saw draw as Balestier drew 1-1 with Courts Young Lions and Hougang drew 0-0 with Woodlands.
The Cubs had taken the lead through Sherif EL-Masri before Qiu Li equalised for the Tigers.
