Starting the game at the Pasir Gudang Corporation Stadium third from bottom on the table, the Young Tigers opened the scoring eight minutes before the break through a penalty from Ridzuan Abdunloh, who then doubled their lead in the 47th minute when he successfully converted from 12 yards again after his side were awarded another spot-kick.
Six minutes later, winger Maxsius Musa scored a third to seal the win for Harimau Muda, which was enough to take them into the top half of the table.
The result also ensured Razip Ismail's young charges got back to winning ways after last week's unlucky 1-0 defeat to Albirex Niigata (S) and they are next in action on Saturday when they entertain Woodlands Wellington.
Tanjong Pagar, on the other hand, remain in third place but they have now lost three of their last four outings and remain ten points behind leaders Tampines Rovers having played a game more.
