Motivated Kitchee aims to wrap up premier league f

Aiming to complete the premier league fixtures in unbeaten fashion, a highly motivated Kitchee side will host Sun Bus Yuen Long on the final match day of the premier league season. The game will take place in Mongkok Stadium on Sunday afternoon and kick-off time will be 2:30pm. Kitchee fans are called upon to show up in droves and to lend their usual, unwavering support to the Blues. Having successfully defended its premier league title with games to spare, Kitchee still has the Sapling Cup and the FA Cup finals to take care of. However, the Blues remains determined to finish the premier league fixtures undefeated, thus will treat the home finale against Sun Bus Yuen Long as a top priority, hoping to repay the fans’ support with yet another victory. Standing on Kitchee’s way this weekend will be Sun Bus Yuen Long, who are no slouch themselves. Looking back at Kitchee’s fabulous season so far, the Blues only tasted defeat in one domestic fixture and that happened to be a Senior Shield semi-final loss against Sun Bus Yuen Long. Hence while Kitchee might have already locked up the premier league title with games to spare, there is no doubt that the Blues will be extremely on guard this weekend against the New Territories side that it knows all too well about. In addition, Sunday’s game will mark the final appearance of Uruguayan icon Diego Forlan in Kitchee colors, thus ensuring Forlan’s farewell Kitchee appearance ends with a victory will also likely be in Kitchee players’ minds. Full-back Lo Kwan-yee points out that Sun Bus Yuen Long excels by playing a team-oriented style, with players often high in spirits. The combination has led to some surprising results for the New Territories side this season and Kitchee must be prepared for a potentially stiff challenge. “Despite sitting in the middle of the premier league table, Sun Bus Yuen Long often causes a lot of surprise simply by playing its hearts out, therefore we must be fully switched on during the battle,” Lo stated ahead of the game. “Entering the final premier league fixture of the season, although Kitchee already has the league title in the bag, yet players who have not seen a lot of game-action this season still want to seize the opportunity to prove themselves on the pitch, hence there is no questioning on our motivation for this game whatsoever.” Forward Jorge Tarres insists Sun Bus Yuen Long is a formidable opponent and the veteran sharpshooter reveals the Blues has been going through match-preparation in a highly focused manner, hoping to come out on top in the weekend fixture. “While Kitchee might have already won the premier league title, yet we still need to treat this game in a professional and fair manner,” declared the classy forward. “Sun Bus Yuen Long has a speedy frontline, is quite dangerous in dead-ball situations and defends well as a unit, therefore we have worked diligently on the training pitch and have tried to eliminate any potential surprises. Hopefully, we can come out on top in the final premier league fixture of the season.”
