|Home United - 2011 League runners-up|
Although, one can't help but feeling sorry for the visitors who were playing their first game after more than a month break due to the rescheduling of the league fixtures and resulted them fielding a number of fringe players after having to release three of their imports - Jeon Byung Euk, Daniel Hammond and Yuta Nakano following the fulfilment of their contractual obligation.
When asked after the game if this was a successful season for him personally, Home United coach Lee Lim Saeng felt others are in a better position to judge his performance rather than having himself to assess his record this year.
"And that's why I trying to change the mindset of my players to make them work harder, I'm happy some of them responded well and like the case of Firdaus Idros who was called up to the national team recently that I hope for more players to follow up as well." added the Korean coach who recently inked a renewal with the club for another two years.
"It's a wonderful three years for me with this club that has been like a family to me and everybody in Home United is so close to each other.
"On a personal note, it's disappointing to lose the league title by one point in a season we had been performed consistently well, but I'm glad that we did won the Singapore Cup being the first title for the club in six years." said Isa.
The other match at Tampines Stadium saw Tampines Rovers beat Balestier Khalsa with the similar scoreline to clinch the League title.
