Taking the current champions to their limits was commendable but, whilst taking points from Asian Champions League giants would have been something to savour, it wouldn’t have been considered too much of a priority from Coach Choi.
Taking points from fellow strugglers will be, however, and that is exactly what Daejeon’s new gaffer will be hoping his side do come Wednesday night.

Daejeon travel to Ulsan to take on another side that are financed by the multi-faceted conglomerate that is the Hyundai Corporation, Ulsan Hyundai.

It hasn’t been plain sailing for Ulsan, though, as they find themselves in stormy waters and struggling at the wrong end of the table.

Their early season promise is, essentially, what is keeping their heads above water.

A defeat for Daejeon could see them fifteen points from safety meaning that the Purples would need a sizeable miracle to avoid the drop.

A win could kick start a much-needed upturn in results.

Previous Meetings

The last time Daejeon played Ulsan, the ship yard dwellers were riding high at the top end of the table.

On that sunny spring afternoon Daejeon performed admirably and managed to hold Ulsan to a 1-1 draw.

Yang Dong-Hyun put Ulsan in front just before half time but former Portsmouth youth prospect Seo Myeong-Won levelled on 66 minutes with an intelligent strike from the edge of the box.

When Daejeon travelled to Ulsan last month for the FA Cup 5th round, it was Ulsan who came out on top but extra-time was needed to separate the two sides.

It was a real ding-dong battle at Munsu which saw a flurry of extra time goals.

Yun Jun-Su put Ulsan ahead just before half time in normal time but Adriano levelled for Daejeon on 70.

The score remained level after normal time which meant an extra thirty was needed.

Six minutes into extra time Kim Shin-Uk put Ulsan back in front from the penalty spot.

But, Daejeon hit back with an instant equaliser through Hwang Ji-Woong to make the score level once again.

But, after a lapse in concentration, Kim Sin-Uk netted his second to send Ulsan into the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

Daejeon’s last win at Munsu dates back to March 2011.

A goal either side of half time from Brazilian striker Wagner was enough for Daejeon despite Kim Shin-Uk pulling on back for Ulsan.

Daejeon notched a double over Ulsan that season having seen off the side from the south east coast with a 1-0 win at World Cup Stadium in July that year.

Again, Wagner was on target for Daejeon.

Team News

Daejeon could be without new forward Ko Min Hyuk after Sunday’s debutant was taken off with a minor injury.

However, a debut could be handed to Brazilian centre back Wanderson.

For Ulsan, Rim Chang-Woo could be in line to face the side he spent a season long loan at in 2014.

The right-sided defender will be remembered for his winning goal for Korea Republic in the Asian Games Final against North Korea.
