Geylang International needed to win by five goals to wrest an AFC Cup spot from their opponents, Home United.
In the end, they beat Home United by only three – but also struck the woodwork three times.
While the winners of the RHB Singapore Cup normally take up the other AFC Cup spot, this time it will go to the local club that finish highest in the S.League after Tampines, who will take on Japanese outfit Albirex Niigata in the Cup final on Saturday.
The Eagles’ 4-1 win over Home at the Bedok Stadium last night saw the visitors hang on to a fourth-place finish in the Great Eastern-Yeo’s S.League, and a place in the continental AFC Cup competition next season.
