Citizen will be looking for nothing less than victory against Happy Valley in their final match of the League today in order to maintain their Coolpoint Ventilation First Division title hopes. Trailing two points behind leaders South China, a loss or draw at Mong Kok Stadium could spell the end of their title challenge. But if they win, the Caroliners must also win against Convoy Sun Hei tomorrow to retain their league championship for a second consecutive season. Citizen team boss Pui Kwan-kei admitted they face a tough battle as the team will miss four key players in the starting lineup, including forward Alexandro da Silva, who has been banned for five matches.
