Home United will go into the last game of the season no matter the result of Tampines-Albriex tomorrow after they defeated Tanjong Pagar 1-0 at Queenstown.
Juma'at Bin Jantan got the winner in the first half.
At the same time, Balestier Khalsa looked to have finished in fourth position after thrashing main rivals Woodlands Wellington 3-0.
The Toa Poyah club now have a 3-point advantage over fifth-placed Woodlands and have a goal difference of +9 compared on only +1 for the Northern club.
Only a thrashing by Tanjong Pagar along with a thrashing of their own by Woodlands will givethem fourth place and it near to impossible.
It is the highest league position by the Toa Poyah club since their merger in 03 and it is thanks to skipper Paul Cunningham and a brace from Qiu Li.
