Daejeon Citizen Vs Pohang Steelers: Preview

Daejeon Citizen Vs Pohang Steelers
K League Classic Round 32 Wednesday 23rd September 2015 19:30




Form

Daejeon: WLLLDL
Pohang: DDDDWW

Just two games remain before the K League Classic splits into two; two games sooner then before the fixtures become slightly more manageable for the hapless Daejeon Citizen.

Rather than having to face sides that are gunning for glory, Citizen can attempt to take points off those around them.

However, as Citizen are currently propping up the table their chances of survival at this stage are slim to none.

Quite frankly, any points Daejeon pick up from now until their fate is officially sealed is merely delaying the inevitable – a stay of execution.

Citizen are circling the drain but haven’t gone quite yet.

Up next for the Purples is the visit of Pohang Steelers, a side that are vying for the opportunity to show their metal in the Asian Champions League once more by securing a top three finish.

Daejeon, then, will need an iron will to be able to take absolutely anything from the game.

Previous Meetings

Daejeon’s record against Pohang is as bleak as it gets having failed to pick up much more than a single point in their last ten meetings.

In fact, Daejeon’s last win against their east coast counterparts was five years ago when, back in April 2010, Ko Chang-Hyeon gave the Purples a 1-0 win at the Steel Yard.

The last time Daejeon beat Pohang on their own patch was even longer ago, 12th August 2007 to be exact, when Citizen recorded a 3-0 win
.
However, more recently, the last meeting between these two sides will still be in the memory of the Daejeon faithful having seen their team concede yet another late goal.

Back in May, promising young forward Hwang In-Beom gave Daejeon the lead at the Steel Yard just before half time.

However, Park Seong-Ho levelled on 76 before Lee Gwang-Hyuk broke Daejeon hearts when he slotted in a 94th minute winner.

The last time Daejeon welcomed the visit of Pohang, for want of a better word, saw the Steelers head back to the seaside with all three points following a 2-0 win.
