Heading into the game following last week's shock 1-0 win over SAFFC, many were expecting the same spirited display from the Jaguars at the Bedok Stadium.
Geylang, on the other hand, were looking to continue their recent resurgence after last Thursday's 0-0 draw with Balestier Khalsa, which came fresh off the back of a terrific run in the Singapore League Cup which culminated in a 2-0 defeat to DPMM FC in the final.
But it was Tanjong Pagar who enjoyed the better chances on Thursday evening, but they were just unable to find their finishing touch in front of goal.
Japanese forward Takaya Kawanabe was presented with the best opportunity in the first half after Terry Pathmanathan's men were awarded a penalty, but his effort was well kept out by Yazid Yasin, as both sides had to settle for a share of the spoils.

In the evening's other game, defending champions Tampines Rovers moved top of the table after a dominant 2-0 triumph over Home United at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
Aleksandar Duric opened the scoring in the 29th minute when he glanced home a cross by Ahmad Latiff, before Sead Hadzibulic added a second five minutes later from close range.
