After a fairly lacklustre first half, the game sparked into life five minutes after the break when Thamil Arasu curled home a delightful effort from the edge of the area give Ong Kim Swee's charges the lead.

However, Tampines equalised in the 65th minute when Mustafic Fahrudin fired a firm penalty past Izham Tarmizi, after Jamil Ali had been felled in the box by Syazwan Tajudin.

The Stags then hit the front foot when Ismadi Mukhtar scored a peach of a goal; weaving his way past a challenge from Fadhli Shas before unleashing a screamer into the back of the net.

It was then Harimau's turn to level the scores in the 76th minute when Syahrul Azwari nodded home a good cross from Nazirul, but their joy was shortlived as Jamil went straight up the other end and netted a dramatic winner for the visitors.

In Sunday's other game, Frederic Mendy scored a second-half double to help Home United beat Courts Young Lions 3-1, after Firdaus Idros had cancelled out Jonathan Toto's opener for Robin Chitrakar's side.
