Kitchee can extend their lead at the top of the First Division standings when they meet an under-strength Happy Valley at Mong Kok Stadium today.

Defending champions Valley will be missing their big guns, who are being rested ahead of the AFC Cup game against New Radiant in the Maldives on Tuesday. Hong Kong internationals Lee Wai-man, Poon Yiu-cheuk, Poon Man-tak and Gerard Ambassa Guy will all give today's match a miss.

Meanwhile, Xiangxue Sun Hei defeated Lanwa Redbull 1-0 in Dongguan yesterday, Brazilian Fladimir Freitas striking home a free kick early in the second half.
