Mercurial winger Sherif El-Masri struck twice in the first half to wrap up the win for the Young Lions and consigned the hosts to a sixth successive defeat at the same time.
The win saw Young Lions leapfrog Hougang into ninth place in the Great Eastern-YEO's S.League on goal difference with a game in hand, and Chitrakar was pleased with the outcome for his side.
"It was definitely a very tough game for us," Chitrakar told reporters after the match, "We lost 3-0 in the same fixture earlier this season, so to come here and win 2-0 is definitely good for us.
"El-Masri contributed well with two goals, but the team played well as a whole today [Thursday].
"We scored early, and that definitely helped us. Our boys really fought hard for this, definitely, and they wanted it badly."
With a fixture against Home United on Sunday looming before the S.League goes on a hiatus, the coach hopes to build on the win and aim for a higher position up the table.
"We'll be playing four games in two weeks - it will be tough on the boys," he added, "Hopefully we can build from here. We shouldn't be satisfied with where we are now."
