Hong Kong defender Ng Wai-chiu is hoping for a happy homecoming when he takes the field for Shanghai Shenhua's match against South China in the annual Interport tournament at Hong Kong Stadium tonight. 'Hong Kong is my home and I feel good to be back here,' said Ng, who last played at the stadium in early 2006 when representing the SAR against Qatar in the Asian Cup qualifiers. 'But I also want to help my team win the title again before we kick off the new season in two months.' Shenhua have won both times since the tournament started two seasons ago, defeating SAR sides Kitchee and Rangers respectively. But Ng believes it will not be easy against South China. 'We have been together for a month, spending most of our time on fitness training,' said Ng. 'South China are the top team in Hong Kong and are in good shape.' Ng is set to partner Du Wei at the back in the absence of China international Li Weifeng, who broke his nose in a recent international friendly. Shenhua, who finished fourth in the China Super League last season, boast other top mainland players like Mao Jianqing, Gao Lin and Xiao Zhanbo. But their Colombian striker, Hamilton Ricard, is unlikely to make the starting line-up because of contract problems. South China, who were stunned by Workable in the League Cup last Saturday, are eager to lift morale with a victory against the mainlanders. But striker Detinho is still nursing a hamstring problem while comeback star Tales Schutz is not expected to be introduced until the second half. Mainlander Fan Weijun, a former Shenhua player, will play up front with Brazilians Maxwell Santos Silva and Manoel Santos Filho, while keeper Zhang Chunhui returns after a two-game suspension for breaking disciplinary rules.
