Champions South China notched their second win of the season in the Coolpoint Ventilation First Division, defeating Sheffield United 2-0 yesterday - but Caroliners boss Steven Lo Kit-sing wasn't happy.
Captain Chan Siu-ki and Brazilian forward Tales Schutz both got on the scoresheet as the Caroliners moved to fourth on the table.
Chan hit a 20-yarder in the seventh minute for the opener and Schutz made it 2-0 in 26 minutes.
But the Caroliners offered precious little in the second half, and Lo was unimpressed.
Lo said: 'I thought we were good in the first half this time.
'But we didn't put up the same sort of intensity in the second half and we played badly after the half-time break.'
Pegasus ended up with nine men in their 3-2 loss to Citizen after Wisdom Agbo and Fabio Oliveira were red carded.
Agbo was sent off in the 81st minute for a second yellow card and goalkeeper Oliveira was dismissed in the last minute for tripping Alessandro Ferreira, who scored the winner from the penalty spot to put Citizen in second spot on the table, two points behind Kitchee.
Ferreira was also on target in the 23rd minute, after Sham Kwok-fai scored from the penalty spot, to give his side a 2-0 first-half lead. Pegasus' goals came from Cheung Kin-fung and Roberto Fronza.
