Kitchee skipper Lo Kwan-yee is eager to prove the Hong Kong selectors wrong when he leads his side against South China in the Canbo Senior Shield final at Siu Sai Wan Sports Ground today. Lo (pictured) was one of seven players dropped from the national team for next week's East Asian Championships in Tokyo when the 23-member squad was announced on Thursday. Champions South China provided 17 of the players. 'It was disappointing to be excluded,' he said. 'There is no use talking about it. I want to lead my side to beat South China and that will tell whether I am worth a place or not.' Winger Lo, 25, has never won a title and is keen to get his first with Kitchee, especially as the winners of the Shield will represent Hong Kong in next year's AFC Cup. 'We came close in 2007 when we lost to unfancied Eastern in the final. We don't want to miss it this time.' Kitchee have beaten South China twice this season, but Lo said that counted for little. Each match is different, especially this being a cup final. South China have great quality and we need to perform at our best if we want to beat them again,' he said. Prolific striker Chan Siu-ki, who played alongside Lo at Kitchee before joining the Caroliners in 2008, is confident they will be crowned the champions. 'We have lost to them twice this season, but that is history and we have solved our problems and know exactly how to beat them,' said Chan, who scored four goals against Happy Valley in the league last Sunday.
