Home United winger Faris Ramli, who attributes his good form to proving himself after an injury-ridden 2016, is now focusing on Tuesday's AFC Cup tie.
Tsubasa Sano scored five times as Albirex Niigata (S) reclaimed their five-point lead at the top of the S.League with an 8-0 victory over Young Lions.
Improved defending against set pieces was the key to Tampines Rovers' 3-0 win away to Hougang United in the S.League, according to coach Jurgen Raab.
Faris Ramli scored four times as Home United routed Brunei DPMM 9-3 in the S.League on Thursday night with six of the goals coming the first half.
Tampines Rovers will seek to put their S.League title bid back on track when they go away to face Hougang United at Hougang Stadium on Thursday night.
Coach Philippe Aw believes Hougang United are close to finding the consistency to move them up the S.League table and can beat anyone on their day.
