Seoul E-Land FC v Gangwon FC



Matches come round thick and fast in the K-League Challenge and it's already time for Round 9 which sees Seoul E-Land looking for their first home league win against a Gangwon side who have struggled to find any sort of form this season.

Coming off the back of two straight away wins which have seen them score eight times the fans will no doubt be expecting some goals against Gangwon who managed to concede three to the league bottom dogs Chungju on Saturday.

Martin Rennie will possibly have some tough decisions to make regarding team selection with games coming thick and fast. Does he keep with the eleven that have been doing well or does he freshen things up to avoid tiring out players who have a long season ahead?

With Tarabai scoring his first goal last week he'll be wanting to start against Gangwon to add to his tally but he may be the most likely candidate to drop out at some point especially given that he played a full season in Malta before joining up with the squad in Seoul. On the bench he certainly has options with Kim Young-keun, Bobby Cullen and Ryan Johnson all able to come into the side although the latter looks more effective as an impact sub at the moment.

One player who surely won't be missing out is Joo-mes who is in the form of his life at the moment. Ditto Kim Jae-sung who is playing a real captain's role while also helping out with goals and assists.

Depending on the outcome of the Gyeongnam v Chungju match, defeat for Gangwon could see them drop to the bottom of the table. They will surely be looking to avoid that but you do struggle to see where the inspiration is going to come from for them. Top scorer for Gangwon is the Brazilian forward Belluso but even then two of his four goals have come from the penalty spot. Their other goal threat is Choi Seung-in who has three for the season so far.

Other than a 4-0 win at home against Bucheon, Gangwon's season has been fairly abject so far. They look a shadow of the team that were challenging at the top of the table last season and it's hard to see exactly what has gone wrong. This is a ridiculously unpredictable league though and it wouldn't surprise me at all if Gangwon ended up taking something from the match. If you were a betting man though you would have to go with a comfortable Seoul E-Land victory.

Key Man: If Gangwon are to get anything out of tonight they probably need to hope that last season's top scorer Choi Jin-ho can find his form. His goals have been notably absent so far.
