Kitchee travels to Aberdeen to face old nemesis Kw

Coming off a spirited victory in the Sapling Cup last weekend, Kitchee will jump straight back into the premier league battleground by trekking all the way to Aberdeen Sports Ground to face Kwoon Chung Southern on Saturday afternoon. Scheduled kick-off time for the fiery premier league affair is 2:30pm. Entering the final stretch of the domestic football season, Kitchee still looks extremely sharp. Despite crashing out of the AFC Champions League group stage, the Blues managed to bounce back in tremendous fashion by dusting off Dreams FC in the Sapling Cup semi-final. Kitchee players sure seem to be high in spirts and form and will be aiming for nothing but three points against Kwoon Chung Southern this weekend, hoping to further extend its current seven-game league winning streak. Standing in Kitchee’s way on the weekend will be old nemesis Kwoon Chung Southern. While the district side might have underperformed this season, Kwoon Chung Southern nevertheless remains Kitchee’s bogey side, as the Blues has yet to nail down a victory over the Hong Kong Island-side in two attempts this season. A fiery contest can be expected this weekend as the two sides meet up once again. Midfielder Lam Kai-wai insists while Kitchee might have already locked up the premier league title, yet the Blues still has important cup games left remaining, thus will be sharpening themselves while hoping to extend the team’s solid late-season form. “Maybe it is true that this game might not seem as important as the previous league fixtures, but we do have several cup games that we still need to get ready for,” Lam revealed. “Hence we are going to put our best foot forward and try to win each and every game that comes our way. Hopefully, we can gear up for those cup fixtures with confidence and momentum in full swing.” Striker Alessandro Leonardo, who missed the past two games through injury, has been back in training and might get the call on the weekend. The lanky marksman declares travelling to Aberdeen Sports Ground will not deter Kitchee’s will for maximum points. “Every game in the season is important for us, especially since we still have several cup games that we need to prepare for, therefore us players will be utilizing the remaining league fixtures to get ourselves ready for these important knockout fixtures,” explained the well-spoken talisman. “It is never an easy game playing away against Kwoon Chung Southern but good teams achieve results no matter how tough the away playing conditions might be, thus playing away from home is not going to affect us whatsoever.”
