Kitchee Returns to Premier League Battleground by

Kitchee will return to the BOCG Life Hong Kong Premier League battleground on Sunday afternoon by visiting the in-form BC Rangers in Kowloon Bay Park. The match will kick-off at 5:30pm. Kitchee, currently sitting on the fifth position in the premier league table with four points from two games, is doing its best to climb up the premier league ladder. The side is riding on a four-game unbeaten streak in all domestic competitions and is fresh off a 4:1 demolition of Yuen Long in the Henderson Sapling Cup. Head coach Abram Garcia rested several of his regulars in the midweek game and therefore the Kitchee troops should have fresh legs heading into the game against BC Rangers on Sunday afternoon. Speedster Christian Annan maintains he is not putting too much thoughts into the current premier league standing and will enter the weekend game determined for another victory. “For the time being, it is still too early to take too much stock from the league standing. I know we are middle-of-the-pack right now but the fact is we have not played too many league games yet. I will pay more attention to the table when December or January arrives, as you can get a better feel of where you really stand in the title-chase,” said the pacey forward. Full-back Tong Kin-man is aware of BC Rangers’ recent good form yet he believes Kitchee has what it takes to overcome its opponent on Sunday. “BC Rangers has vastly improved with some very astute new signings, including Landon Ling and Diego Folgar. They have done very well by beating Eastern last weekend and you can tell the team is fast-improving. However, I believe we have enough quality in our side to handle them. What we need to do is to not allow them to penetrate with the ball and come directly against our defense,” explained the Kitchee defender.
