A spectacular strike from substitute Syafiq Zainal three minutes from time helped Balestier Khalsa come from behind to snatch an unlikely 1-1 draw with Warriors FC at Toa Payoh Stadium on Thursday night.
The visitors looked on course to claim all three points after Jonathan Behe had given them the lead, but Syafiq, who had came on to play on the wing before moving upfront to replace the injured Miroslav Kristic, slammed home his first goal of the season to equalise for the hosts.

Balestier held high hopes of overturning the tie after losing the first leg by just a one-goal margin, but failed to get going against a defensively solid Albirex side.
