First Division newcomers Kitchee aim for their first major silverware in 30 years when they face Happy Valley in today's FA Cup final at the Hong Kong Stadium. The current league leaders are also attempting to break up the hegemony of Valley and Sun Hei, who between them hold all four Hong Kong trophies. Valley are the defending league champions and this season have already claimed the Senior Shield, having been beaten by Sun Hei in the League Cup final. In comparison, Kitchee's last triumph was in 1963-64 - a league and Senior Shield double - before even their current coaching staff were born. 'It's important, but for us there is no pressure,' said player-coach Ricky Cheng Siu-chung. 'It's our first year [in the First Division] and we've so many young players experiencing a final for the first time. I've told them to enjoy it. Of course they must give their best, but the result is not as important as the performance. Happy Valley are a big side, but if we play a strong game we can beat them.' Kitchee's relative lack of experience - teenagers Chan Siu-ki and Lam Ka-wai have both been regulars this season - is exacerbated by the suspension of 32-year-old Brazilian midfielder Ailton de Araujo, who is serving a one-match ban following his dismissal in last Sunday's dramatic extra-time win over the holders Sun Hei. Happy Valley have no such problems, but have hardly been at their best since the shock of their unexpected defeat to Fukien in the league in mid-March and a draw with Nancheng in their next league outing in mid-April seriously undermined their title challenge. However, coach Chan Hung-ping insisted his side's recent form wasn't his chief worry. 'I'm more concerned about the discipline. If the whole team is disciplined it's easier for us to achieve our standard of play,' he said. 'Sometimes we think it's too easy and lose concentration. We've had one or two games like against Rangers and Fukien where the discipline and attitude hasn't been right. They need to be reminded.' Certainly there's a feeling in the Kitchee camp that Valley are far from invincible, particularly if they can be prevented from taking an early lead. 'The longer we can stay in the game the better. Valley will try and score early, but if they don't score in the first 60 minutes they will start to rush,' said Cheng. 'Valley don't have a lot of strong substitutes. They have 11 or 12 good players, the rest are young.' There is also a feeling that Valley have become more and more predictable as the season has worn on, but Valley's recent struggles may have had more to do with complacency. 'We're looking for the trophy. Everyone is confident,' insisted coach Chan. 'We've beaten them twice [in the league last November and in the quarter-finals of the Senior Shield in March] and we're going to beat them again. We must be aggressive. Defensively we know how to stop them, although they are a dangerous side. [Serbian striker Mihailo] Jovanovic is a good passer, Rochi [Putiray] is quick and the number 14 [Wilfred Bamnjo] is a strong tackler. They're not a bad side.' Chan's compliment is something of an understatement considering Kitchee are also two wins away from sealing the championship too. Their opponents are arguably the in-form side in Hong Kong, and are hardly lacking in self-belief. 'We know their weaknesses and if we hit them when they're most vulnerable, and we know where they are vulnerable, we will win,' Jovanovic stated confidently. 'We've prepared really, really well and I think we're going to have a really good finish to the season.'
