Eastern will have to overcome another tough obstacle in their title chase when they face the challenge of Sun Pegasus in the BOCG Life Premier League at Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground tonight. A victory at their home venue will keep the pressure on leaders Kitchee, whose fixture against BC Rangers has been rescheduled due to their involvement in the AFC Cup. "There is no space for dropping points at this stage and we have to fight for victory in every game like a cup final," said Eastern coach Cristiano Cordeiro ahead of the clash. It's different this time and the players are also different as the situation has changed a lot since we last met Christian Cordeiro "It is not only for Eastern, but Sun Pegasus as well because they also want to keep their title hopes alive. It's going to be an entertaining match and the result will have a great impact on either side." Big spenders Eastern are currently second in the table with 25 points, one behind Kitchee while Sun Pegasus are on 22 points in fourth place, but have played one match more than the two leading clubs. Eastern beat the same opponents 3-0 when they met in the first round of the season, but Cordeiro admitted that result had no bearing on today's game. "It's different this time and the players are also different as the situation has changed a lot since we last met," said Cordeiro. "Pegasus have even changed their coach and it is a completely new game. Both sides are now under pressure to get results and it should be way tougher than the first game." Eastern midfield utility man Diego Moreira is suspended for the match after picking up his fifth yellow card in their last match against Tai Po and Andy Naegelein is in line to replace him. Sun Pegasus coach Chan Chi-hong, who took over from Ricardo Rambo in late January, said a victory is crucial in their hunt for a top four position, which will see them qualify for the season-ending Playoff Cup for an AFC Cup berth next season. "We know it is going to be tough against Eastern, but we can't afford another defeat," he said. Today's other fixture sees South China taking on YFCMD at Sham Shui Po Sports Ground with the Caroliners seeking a win before their trip to Malaysia for a pivotal AFC Cup group match against Pahang on Wednesday. Meanwhile, I-Sky Yuen Long and Wong Tai Sin played out a 1-1 draw yesterday.
