RED card fever continued in the First Division as two more players were dismissed in Kui Tan's 2-1 defeat of Kitchee at Mongkok Stadium last night.

A player from each side got their marching orders, adding to the four who faced early baths in the clash between Eastern and Instant-Dict last Saturday.

Kui Tan's Chan Chi-hong was sent off for his second bookable offence six minutes into the second half and Kitchee's Cheng Tai-sing went in the 67th minute after a professional foul on Yeung Hei-chi.

Otis Roberts opened the scoring in the 59th minute with Chow Chun-yu equalising for Kitchee four minutes later.

Chow headed home Bau Ka-yiu's cross but Nick Peverell scored the winner for Kui Tan when he tapped home from the rebound after Darron Wilkinson's shot was blocked by Kitchee 'keeper Sean Lahiff.
