The goals continued to flow for the Cheetahs as Doi produced a sharp first-time finish off Idraki’s low cross before returning the favour with a smart backheel for the latter to prod past Sanders Saurajen for a two-goal lead at the break.
Hougang then found further goals with super-sub Afiq reacting the quickest to a rebound to score less than a minute after coming on, before the in-form Idraki squared for Shawal to slam home.
Geylang grabbed a couple of consolation goals through Amy and Comvalius, but the visitors crowned the win deep into injury time through Doi’s clinical finish from just outside the area to cap a lethal breakaway move.
