Kitchee Poises to Strike on Kwoon Chung Southern i

Currently riding on an upward swing, Kitchee will engage Kwoon Chung Southern once again on Wednesday evening in the BOCG Life Hong Kong Premier League. The match will take place in Mongkok Stadium and kick-off time will be at 8:00pm. Kitchee and Kwoon Chung Southern have quickly built up a healthy rivalry this season, given the two sides have already met up four times since the season started. The two teams have each picked up a win while drawing the other two games, making it a relatively even matchup. In terms of recent form, Kitchee currently finds itself riding on a two-game winning streak and will look to pounce on the slumping Kwoon Chung Southern, who has dropped four of its past five matches. Midfield battler Huang Yang believes Kitchee and Kwoon Chung Southern have met up so many times this season that both sides already have a very clear understanding about each other’s playing style. “Kwoon Chung Southern has played with a very healthy dosage of confidence every time when they face us this season, making them a side that cannot be underestimated. They are very discipline at the back and their dead-ball attacks are a threat. Therefore we really need to be on guard when it comes to defending any dead-ball situation, as well as capitalizing on our scoring chances up-front,” explained the Hong Kong international. Forward Alessandro Ferreira finds it interesting to be coming up against Kwoon Chung Southern once again on Wednesday night. “Despite having played against Kwoon Chung Southern four times this season, this is still a very important game for us as we will be desperate to claim all three points. We need to display a certain level of patience on the pitch and if we can play with our usual style and open the score early in the game, I am confident that we can take home all three points,” offered the silky-smooth striker.
