HOME UNITED BEATS HOUGANG UNITED 2-1 WITH CONTROVERSIAL REFEREEING

Just when the Cheetahs looked like they have survived the storm to take it into extra time, some controversial refereeing resulted in a late winner that knocked them out of the competition.

Kogure was clearly fouled by Sirina Camara near the touchline of the Home United half, but linesman Jeffrey Goh kept his flag firmly by his side.

Incensed, Hougang midfielder Raihan Rahman went in hard on Faris Ramli, who appeared to kick out in retaliation, but referee G Letchman remained unmoved and allowed play to go on.

TITLE CONTENDER, TAMPINES ROVERS HELD BY 10 MEN CHEETAHS, HOUGANG UNITED

Tall and lanky, he bears a passing resemblance to Juventus dynamo Paul Pogba.

Sure, he is nowhere near the 23-year-old French international who has already played in a Champions League final, but Hougang United forward Iqbal Hussain is definitely an exciting prospect for Singapore football as his team continue to confound skeptics by continuing their fairytale run.

Last night at the Hougang Stadium, the 22-year-old came on as a 66th-minute substitute for Nur Na'iim Ishak and took just four minutes to score a brilliant solo goal to salvage a point for the 10-man Cheetahs against title favourites Tampines Rovers and preserve both their five-match unbeaten home record and their place in the S.League's top three.

AFTER TERRIBLE START, HOME UNITED FINALLY SHOW GLIMPSES OF CHAMPIONSHIP FORM

They were one of the title contenders pre-season, but endured a terrible start when they went winless in their first four games and dropped 10 points in the process, effectively killing their title hopes before they could even start to dream. But once they got into the groove, once they kickstarted their campaign with their first win, a 4-1 cakewalk over Garena Young Lions despite conceding the opener, they are now one of the form teams outside of the seemingly unstoppable league leaders Albirex Niigata.

LEAKY GEYLANG DEFENCE FALLS TO LIVELY HOUGANG UNITED ATTACKS

One-nil and you fucked it up, one-nil and you fucked it up, the Hougang faithful sang in glee. It was a cheeky taunt directed at Geylang International, but it's true. Once again the Eagles took the lead, once again they were unable to win, as they succumbed to a 3-1 away defeat by Hougang United. It is now four games that Hasrin Jailani's men have failed to protect their lead. In total, across these four games, they have managed to hold on to their lead for 51 minutes as they now slipped to seventh in the nine-team S.League.
