DPMM FC tentatively stretched their lead at the top of the S.League to five points on Thursday after claiming a 2-0 win over Woodlands Wellington at the Woodlands Stadium.
The Bruneian outfit were handed the perfect start in the 13th minute when opposition centre-back Walid Lounis conceded a penalty and was shown a straight red in the process; Rodrigo Tosi making no mistake from 12 yards to break the deadlock.
And just before halftime, Azwan Ali doubled DPMM’s lead with his third goal in his last four games, which ultimately was enough to wrap up the three points.
Over at the Toa Payoh Stadium, Balestier Khalsa finally got back to winning ways by beating Harimau Muda 2-0 – their first triumph in seven matches.
The Tigers broke the deadlock in the 20th minute when Goran Ljubojevic’s flick-on made its way to Zulkiffli Hassim, who made no mistake in stabbing home at the back post.
Four minutes before the break, the contest was effectively over after Harimau keeper Ilham Amirullah missed his attempt to claim a high ball, allowing Ljubojevic to bring the ball down and slot into the unguarded net.
