However, Albirex Niigata failed to keep up the performance as they stumbled on a (3-3) stalemate against Hougang United on match day 18.
Like top teams always do, they returned with a bang as they trashed Young Lions (7-1) to secure all the points in front of their home fans.

Although there is still plenty of work to be done, they are on track. The visitors have been a joy to watch in recent games after a horrible start to the season.
