INSTANT-DICT'S perfect league record will be put to the ultimate test in tonight's crunch Hong Kong First Division match against 25-time champions South China at the Hong Kong Stadium. Instant-Dict seemed to have regained their zest for winning and have so far tallied three straight victories in the league without conceding a single goal. The Dickies have thrashed Club 5-0, edged Frankwell 1-0 and then defeated Happy Valley 2-0 but the perennial runners-up know they have their hands full against South China, who are bent on winning their first league title in four seasons. At least Instant-Dict know their defence have been holding up well so far and they have striker Paul Foster, who has found the back of the net five times, in fine fettle. Foster will be the danger to a rather shaky South China defence who have conceded four goals in the campaign so far. Instant-Dict team manager Ben Choi York-yee is confident his side can at least share the spoils tonight. 'If we continue playing as well as we have, we should trouble South China. It's really a 50-50 game and I think the team who makes the most of their chances will win,' he said. 'South China is a team made up of fine individual players but if we play up to our abilities and stick to our game plan, we can win.' South China have also won their first three games but not in the same manner as their opponents. The Caroliners got off to a flying start by beating arch-rivals Eastern 3-1 but they were let off the hook against Sing Tao, who squandered a 2-0 lead before the Caroliners clawed back to win 3-2. South China's somewhat shaky form was laid to rest when they completely dominated newly-promoted Mansion in a convincing 4-1 win last Monday. Indeed, they could have won by a larger margin and cruelly had a goal disallowed by skipper Ku Kam-fai, who hurt his head in a clash with a defender in the process. South China coach Wong Man-wai knows what his team are up against but is confident his squad will continue their winning start. 'Instant-Dict have not conceded a single goal in three matches and that says a lot about their defence,' Wong said. 'Since they have signed Tim O'Shea, their defence has a good look about it. They also have Foster and I have to admit that Instant-Dict are definitely stronger than they were last year.' Wong's only worry is that of Bosnian striker Alen Bajkusa. The stylish 23-year-old is still nursing a hamstring injury suffered against Eastern on September 24. The injury has not completely healed. South China will field the same side who disposed of Mansion with Bajkusa and local striker Au Wai-lun upfront. Skipper Ku has fully recovered from a head injury suffered last time against Mansion and will remain the pillar of defence with Brazilian Aurelio, who has shown his knack for scoring, with three so far this season. Golden and Frankwell shared the spoils in a drab 1-1 draw in a Hong Kong First Division match at Mongkok Stadium last night. Richard Crossley put Frankwell ahead in the 47th minute but Lo Kai-wah cancelled out the goal with an equaliser six minutes later.
