SOUTH China are looking to bounce back from their earlier defeat by leaders Eastern when they take on newcomers Frankwell in tonight's intriguing Marlboro First Division match at Mongkok Stadium. South China lost to Eastern 1-0 at the Hong Kong Stadium last week but have a chance to redeem themselves against the surprise package team of the First Division. Frankwell share third spot in the standings with South China with an inferior goal difference but the Hong Kong First Division debutants are more than capable of holding their own - and causing a upset. South China's management insist the controversy surrounding former defender Marcel Liesdek - at the centre of a Dutch Football Association probe over allegations that he produced a fake invoice for teammate Leslie Santos' operation in Holland - will not affect the team. The Caroliners will be without centre-half Alekxandr Stradin, sacked earlier this week, and striker Romans Sidorovs, who left the club yesterday citing that he was homesick. Dutch goalkeeper Werner Kooistra is doubtful after receiving stitches to his cheekbone following a clash in last week's game against Eastern.
