Daejeon have been rooted to the foot of the table all season but, as a wise British philosopher named Phil Collins once said: “all against all odds”, Citizen have given themselves a fighting chance.

So, take a look at them now; Daejeon are just five points behind 11th placed Busan when merely two months ago Citizen were all-but dead and buried 12 points adrift.

Daejeon’s trip to Uslan, though, is as tough as it comes at this stage of the season.

Nevertheless, it is do or die for those donning purple.

And, quite frankly, there could actually be a scenario where they are pronounced dead despite “doing”, as it were.

Although Daejeon need to beat Ulsan to ensure any chance of survival, they also need a favour from Incheon United and former Citizen hit man Kevin Oris.

If Incheon beat Busan at home and Daejeon come away from Uslan with all three points then the relegation lottery will be a rollover for another week.

It’s relegation sudden death.

Previous Meetings

Daejeon have failed to beat Ulsan in four attempts this campaign having played our three league matches and contested an FA Cup 4th round tie.

Both of Ulsan’s visits to Purple Arena ended in stalemates whilst each trip to the Munsu Stadium have seen the home side score rather freely.

But, none of those games matter.

The only game that does matter is this Saturday’s.

Team News

In recent weeks Coach Choi has preferred to use his foreign players as impact substitutes, perhaps with the exception of the ever-impressive Wanderson.

However, Niltinho’s link up play with Seo Myeong Won during the win over Busan, notably in the build up to the former Portsmouth’s youngster’s headed goal, may be enough to earn a starting birth for Daejeon’s number 10.

Seo Myeong Won seems to have developed an understanding with the aforementioned Brazlian duo since his return from injury – a return that has seemingly coincided with Daejeon’s upturn in fortunes.
