Instant-Dict yesterday admitted they were at fault for fielding suspended defender Fu Ka-ki in Sunday's First Division encounter against South China - and they are willing to forfeit the one point they earned in the 2-2 draw at Mongkok Stadium. Fung, who joined the Dickies this season from relegated Five-One-Seven, played 26 minutes in Sunday's game after coming on as a substitute. None of the Instant-Dict officials - and not even Fung himself - was aware of the suspension until the issue came up yesterday. Instant-Dict executive director Ken Ng said the club would take full responsibility for the error. 'We have made a mistake and we admit it. The mistake was due to bad internal communication,' Ng said. 'We have wasted our players' efforts after they fought so hard to earn the draw.' The 20-year-old Fung was sent off for handling the ball inside the box during last season's Viceroy Cup second round match against South China on April 21. He was handed a one-match suspension by the Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA) disciplinary committee just before the end of the season, which meant he had to serve the ban immediately after registration with the HKFA this season. Instant-Dict assistant coach Lo Kwok-wah, who coached Five-One-Seven last season, was not informed by his former club about Fung's suspension. Jackson Yu Chik-sum, acting HKFA general secretary, said the management committee would soon discuss the punishment for Instant-Dict. 'It is certain that last Sunday's result will not stand as Instant-Dict have fielded a player who should not have been allowed to play,' Yu said. Sing Tao were docked one point in the 1994-95 season after fielding English midfielder Darren Jackson, who was not registered at that time. Yu said South China would be granted three points. 'We are going to give a full explanation to our players and sponsors about what happened. We will also inform the HKFA that Fung will serve his suspension in our upcoming game against Happy Valley on September 13,' Ng said. 'And we would also like to apologise to our supporters. But I can assure them that we will try our very best to get the points back.'
