Balestier Khalsa continued their remarkable run in the S-league as they make it 11 games unbeaten as they come from a goal to beat Home United 2-1.
The Protectors drew first blood after Lee Kwan-woo dispatched an 11th-minute penalty, but Qiu Li curled home a sublime freekick six minutes before the break to level the scores.
Seven minutes after the hour mark, the Tigers enjoyed more joy from a set-piece as captain Paul Cunningham rose highest inside the area to head home Ruhaizad Ismail's freekick, which ultimately proved enough for the three points.
