South China's Paraguayan striker Fernando Ornelas is confident of scoring goals tonight when his side take on Yee Hope in an Ericsson League encounter at Mongkok Stadium. Ornelas, 22, scored both goals in South China's opening game of the season, against defending champions Instant-Dict on August 30. The 1.86-metre centre forward has scored 51 goals during his five-year professional career in Brazil and Chile. 'Hong Kong football is quite different from South America, where the emphasis is more on skills and possession,' said Ornelas. 'From my experience in our last game, it is easier to score here than in Brazil or Chile. I will try my best and I am confident of scoring constantly here.' Star winger Ricky Cheng Siu-chung is also hoping to be in contention for this season's scoring honours. His free kicks have been improving since he started practising with a wooden dummy wall. 'We practise with the dummy wall three times a week and it really helps. I practised with it when I was in Costa Rica,' said Cheng. Coach Casemiro Mior said his side's performance might be affected as they had not had a match in the past two weeks. Yee Hope, meanwhile, welcome back player-coach Neil Armour, who should strengthen their defence. Armour said they would play more defensively than they did in their 5-5 draw with Sing Tao last week. Their Scottish striker, Paul Ritchie, and local forward Wong Chi-keung, have proved a potent force up front. Young goalkeeper Chan Ka-ki will replace mainlander Ha Wei. In the curtain raiser tonight, Instant-Dict play First Division newcomers Sai Kung Friends. Sai Kung Friends' former Brazilian youth international forward, Tomy Giacomeli, is ready to play after receiving his work permit, while 'keeper Lai Pak-yung will replace Kan Wing-hong between the posts. Chinese internationals Sun Jihai and Fan Zhiyi made their debutsfor English First Division side Crystal Palace in a League Cup match against Bury. While 3,000 people were on hand to watch the first round, first leg match, an estimated television audience of around 500 million were reported to have watched it in China, but there was little joy for the Chinese fans as Bury won 3-0 and Fan was booked for a dangerous tackle.
