Wofoo Tai Po's hopes of surviving in the BOCG Life Hong Kong Premier League were dealt a hammer blow on Sunday after they lost to visitors I-Sky Yuen Long 2-0. Goals from Reinaldo Peres and Wellingsson de Souza in each half settled the issue as Yuen Long moved away from the relegation zone on 14 points, while Tai Po, who have yet to claim full points this season, sit at the bottom of the table. Even if we manage to stay in the Premier League this season, what about next season? We will probably face the same situation Chan Ping They have collected only three points from three draws and have only three league matches to turn their hopes around. Tai Po must beat Wong Tai Sin, who are on eight points, in their next match if they want to have any chance of staying in the top flight. Tai Po club secretary, Chan Ping, refused to panic, saying the result was not unexpected since district teams do not receive adequate financial backing. "Even if we manage to stay in the Premier League this season, what about next season? "We will probably face the same situation," he said. Chan said they managed to secure a budget of over HK$5 million for this season but he said it's hardly enough to form a competitive team against many big-spending clubs. "District teams are more difficult to secure commercial sponsorship because we play under the name of their district. "We have to rely heavily on government subsidies but in reality the authorities do not provide too much," he said. Tai Po and other districts club met the Home Affairs Bureau before the season began, requesting financial support of at least HK$3 million, but in the end they received only half the amount. Yuen Long coach Chan Ho-yin said they would now set sights on the FA Cup to salvage some pride before the end of the season - and not worry too much about their Premier League survival. Meanwhile, South China were held to a disappointing goalless draw by BC Rangers in another match at Mong Kok Stadium. Disgruntled fans booed the Caroliners, who now have little hope of challenging for the league title as they are five points behind leaders Kitchee, having played two more games.
