Suwon 2-1 Daejeon: Recap

Daejeon failed to follow up their last win at Big Bird having seen their score from April reversed.

Citizen fell to a determined Suwon side who still feel they have a genuine shot at the K League crown.

A goal from Cho Sung-Jin gave the home side the lead despite some early pressure from a spirited and determined Daejeon. The score remained 1-0 at half time but, having been unlucky to trail at the interval, Daejeon came out firing in the second half. Brazilian utility man Wanderson netted an audacious free-kick just shy of the hour mark to level, only for some haphazard defending gift Gwon Chang-Hoon a chance which Suwon’s second half substitute duly buried.
The game began at a frantic pace with the visitors visibly fired up, chasing loose balls and showing a great deal of steely determination.

But, it was Suwon who took the lead after just 12 minutes played.

A corner from the left found the head of Yang Sang-Min but the former Ansan Police defender saw his header hacked away off the line by Kim Tae-Bong.

Silva tried to intercept the rebound but the ball landed at the feet of Cho Sung-Jin who fired home from close-blank range.

Suwon’s leaded lasted beyond half time and just shy of the hour mark.

Wanderson - the Brazilian who can seemingly play anywhere on the football pitch with relative ease - let loose with a teasing curling effort from 35 yards out.

His free-kick sailed into the top corner much to the bemused and, frankly, helpless No Dong-Geon in goal for Suwon who could merely flail himself towards the top corner.

Daejeon now had something for their efforts, a 1-1 draw away at Suwon would have been a commendable result.

‘Would’ being the operative word as, yet again, Daejeon undid themselves with some naïve and reckless defending.

Daejeon had a throw in midway into their half taken by Kim Tae-Bong.

The on loan Anyang man threw it short to Lee Hyun-Seung who immediately gave the ball back before Kim Tae-Bong tried to find Silva with a half volley.

Silva clearly wasn’t expecting to be played at such an awkward height as the 31-year-old Filipino centre half struggled to bring the ball down with his chest.

 The former Xerez man’s heavy touch invited Gwon Chang-Hoon to intercept.

The latter did exactly that and before Daejeon’s back four realised, Gwon Chang-Hoon was bearing down on goal.

Oh Seung-Hoon had made a couple of vital saves in the first half but was found wanting for Suwon’s winner.

The former Kyoto Sanga stopper was beaten far too easily, and with Suwon now in the ascendancy, it was hard to see a way back for Daejeon.

The result stayed 2-1 to Suwon who had to win given Jeonbuk’s 2-0 win at home to Busan.

For Citizen, the gap remains as it was – 12 points behind Busan, 16 points from safety.

Up next for Daejeon is Seongnam at home this coming Saturday.
