Following a lively start, Woodlands duly went ahead in the 27th minute when Moon Soon-ho flicked a ball through to strike partner Hussein Akil, who calmly slotted the ball past the onrushing Yazid Yasin to open the scoring.
Akil nearly made it 2-0 shortly after when he cut in from the left and fired in a shot that Yazid could only spill onto the post but the Rams inability to grab a second cost them dearly in the 67th minute when the hosts were awarded a penalty for handball, which Jozef Kaplan fired into the bottom corner despite the best efforts of Ahmadulhaq Che Omar.
Nonetheless, the draw means Geylang remain bottom of the table while Woodlands are one place above them on goal difference.
In Thursday's other game, Albirex Niigata cruised to a 2-0 win over Tanjong Pagar United to move second on the table and close in ot just two points behind leaders DPMM FC, who play on Saturday.
Masatake Sato opened the scoring in the 31st minute for the White Swans with a delicate freekick from the edge of the area, before he whipped in cross that Kunihiro Yamashita powered home with a header four minutes after the break to hand the Japanese side all three points.
