UHLSPORT-Rangers defeated Sing Tao 2-1 and gained some ground on the leaders in an entertaining Hong Kong First Division match at Mongkok Stadium last night. It was Rangers' second win of the season, moving them up two places in the 10-team table to occupy fifth spot behind leaders Instant-Dict, Golden, South China - all on 10 points - and Sing Tao who remain unchanged in fourth spot on nine points. Sing Tao missed a chance of going two points clear of their rivals as they lost their second game of the season. Rangers' attacking midfielder Wu Yiu-kwok put his team ahead in the ninth minute with a shot from close range. But former Crystal Palace centre-half Rudi Hedman made it all square with a 14th minute equaliser, scoring from the penalty spot after Rangers' defender Yan Lik-kin was adjudged to have handled the ball under pressure from Sing Tao striker Nick Dent. Russian midfielder Sergei Volkov snatched the lead back for Rangers in the 30th minute, crashing home Lee Wai-man's cross at the right-hand post with a vicious volley. 'We played a good first half and we thought victory was well in sight but we sat back in the second half. 'We were a bit nervous because we were under pressure to perform,' said Rangers' team manager Tony Siew. 'This is a good win for us but we are still under intense pressure to chase the leaders.' Meanwhile, talented South Korean winger Jin Ri is set to leave Happy Valley for fellow Hong Kong First Division club Frankwell. The deal was set in motion yesterday afternoon after Happy Valley chairman Martin Hong Po-kui and Frankwell boss Fung Shiu-wai discussed Jin's move in detail and agreed on undisclosed terms. 'I expect Jin to join us by the end of the week,' enthused Fung, who was confident the deal would be finalised soon. 'I don't think we need to pay a transfer fee because Jin wanted to join us and there's a certain understanding between Frankwell and Happy Valley. 'Jin Ri is the kind of player we need. He's a good, speedy winger who should be a suitable addition to our team.' The Beijing-born Korean, who has performed in the Chinese professional league but last played in the Canadian semi-professional league, is understood to have not got along with a certain number of Happy Valley's expat players and wanted out. 'If worst comes to worst, and Jin Ri feels unhappy with Frankwell he can always go back home to Canada but I hope he'll settle down with us,' said Fung. Jin has delighted spectators with his flashy runs down the left wing and has become a favourite of Happy Valley. Meanwhile, Frankwell have gone against releasing Hong Kong international defender Ng Chun-chung and have decided to retain him. Jin is the third expat player to leave Happy Valley since the start of the season. Earlier, goalkeeper Kenny Barnstaple and fellow Scot striker John Brock were released. Brazilian giants Flamengo are set to appear at the Hong Kong Stadium on January 21 against South China. World Cup hero Romario and fellow Brazilian strikers Savio and Edmundo have been guaranteed to appear in the second meeting between the two clubs. Flamengo won the first encounter 2-1 in Guangzhou last August and South China are itching for revenge.
