Determined Kitchee ready to make up for Premier Le

Kitchee is set to face South China on Wednesday evening for arguably the biggest game of the season so far. The epic premier league battle between the two arch-rivals will take place in Mongkok Stadium and kick-off time will be at 8:00pm. The match will have great impact on Kitchee’s chances for the premier league title and we call for Kitchee supporters to show up for the match and support the team. The defending premier league champion currently finds itself sitting on the fifth spot in the premier league table, certainly a very disappointing position by Kitchee’s own lofty standards. In terms of head-to-head clash, Kitchee has already faced South China twice this season, dropping the HKJC Community Cup while beating the Caroliners in the League Cup group stage. If Kitchee harbours any premier league title aspirations, nothing but three points on Wednesday night will be enough for the powerful blue side. Striker Juan Belencoso spoke about the importance of coming out on top in the midweek premier league clash against South China. “This is a huge game for us and we need to win without a doubt. If we can come out on top against South China, I think we are still within a shout for the premier league title. However, if we continue to drop points, then I think we can pretty much wave goodbye to our title chances,” said the burly Spanish striker. “We might not have done well in the premier league this season but we have good quality throughout the squad and a lot of things can happen during the match. One thing that is for sure, we will try our best and work very hard on Wednesday night.” Midfielder Lam Ka-wai maintains Kitchee will enter the game with gritty determination. “If you look at the whole premier league picture, we are definitely not in a very good position. We dropped too many points before and left us with virtually no room for error. While that might sound like a tough spot to be in, at least our target and determination on Wednesday night will be very clear, as nothing but a victory will be enough for us,” offered the midfield schemer. “Awal Mahama is the main threat for South China and while there has been talks about him being injured, the most important thing for us will be playing up to our own standard and staying aggressive.”
