OTIS Roberts struck a spectacular 30-yard winner in the dying minute to hand Golden a timely 3-2 victory over struggling Happy Valley at Mongkok Stadium last night and remain in strong contention in the Hong Kong First Division. Roberts' strike two minutes into injury time gave Golden the points just when they were about to accept a 2-2 draw. 'My heart skipped a beat when Otis scored. I thought it was going to end as a draw for sure,' said delighted Golden president Wan Chi-lok. Golden have joined leaders Instant-Dict at the top of the league standings on 13 points although Instant have a better goal difference from the same number of matches - five. Golden's win, though, has put them two points clear of South China, who lost some of their momentum after being held to a 1-1 draw by Frankwell on Tuesday night. Scottish striker Lee Bullen scored the other two goals for Golden including one from the penalty spot as Happy Valley were condemned to their third defeat of the season. Bullen rose high to head in his team's first three minutes after the interval from Lo Kai-wah's corner. The speedy forward added another six minutes later from the penalty spot after fellow Scot Paul Ritchie found the net for Happy Valley two minutes earlier. Ritchie shot past 'keeper Chan Hing-wing after picking up Paul Ronald's cross but Bullen regained Golden's lead, stroking home from the spot after he was fouled by defender Neil Armour. Kwok Yue-hung equalised in the 81st minute before Otis, who played for Kui Tan last season, struck his last-gasp winner. 'We had a brilliant chance to score in the first half but Lee [Bullen] was rather unlucky when he struck the post,' Wan said. 'Had we scored then, maybe it would have been different. We would have to work so hard for victory. 'We conceded two silly goals through defensive lapses and we must pay more attention at the back.' Defending champions Yokohama Flugels of Japan dashed Hong Kong's hopes in the Asian Cup Winners' Cup, beating Uhlsport Rangers 4-2 in Tokyo last night. Flugels, who advance to the quarters-finals, led 4-0 before the Rangers replied in the 77th minute through second-half substitute Kwok Man-tik after a scramble in front of the Japanese net. Tam Siu-wai scored the Rangers other goal with one minute remaining. Rangers had lost the first-leg of the second round tie at the Hong Kong Stadium 3-1 on October 10.
