While the fight for top may well be over as the Champions, Tampines Rovers, continue to romp away, second place is up for grab as Albirex Niigata (S) went down 0-1 to Home United in the LIVE televised match.
Lee Kwan Woo, considered Home best player thus far, gave the Protectors the lead from a free-kick and the two-time champions shut up shop after that to gave them third points to maintain their hold of the top 4 position.
Tanjong Pagar United failed to close up on Albirex as they showcased their inconsistent form again when they lost to Harimau Muda 0-3.
Ridzuan Abdunloh, with a brace, and Maxsius Musa got the Malaysian goals in their win
Home United, with the win, are a further one point behind the Jaguars and a further 3 behind Albirex..
