Preview: Anyang FC Vs Daejeon Citizen

Anyang FC Vs Daejeon Citizen

Thursday 5th May 2016 K League Challenge Round 8 Kick Off 2PM KST

Sunday saw Daejeon pick up their first away win of the season after easing past Goyang in what was a deserved 1-0 victory.

The result meant that Daejeon are now on a run of three wins in a row in call competitions and have recorded back-to-back league wins for the first time this season; a feat that Daejeon have only managed on three occasions in the last two years.

Up next for the much-improved Daejeon is a trip back up to Gyeonggi-do to take on Anyang this Thursday afternoon.

Anyang have won just once so far this term and entertain the Purples on the back of a four game win-less run in the league.

A win for Daejeon would see them leapfrog Anyang and could propel them within reach of the much-coveted playoff spots.

Previous Meetings

Daejeon, of course faced, Anyang four times on their way to securing the K League Challenge title in 2014, with Daejeon only losing once.

Said loss was in fact the most recent meeting between these two sides, a 3-1 home defeat for Daejeon.

Playing at the Hanbat Stadium whilst World Cup Stadium was closed for renovation work, Citizen succumbed to a 3-1 defeat against a very good Anyang side.

During the 2014 season, Anyang were also gunning for promotion and narrowly missed out on a playoff place.

The extent of their prowess was evident on that afternoon in October 2014.

Jung Jae-Yong had the visitors ahead inside 12 minutes before Kim Jae-Woong doubled their advantage midway through the second period.

Adriano pulled one back for Daejeon with little over 10 minutes remaining only for Kim Tae-Bong, currently of Daejeon, sealed the win in the closing moments.

Daejeon's last trip to Anyang, which came back in August 2014, resulted in a 1-1 draw in a game that saw somewhat of a dramatic late flurry of action.

Kim Chan-Hee put Daejeon ahead in the 82 minute, with a goal that had seemingly been enough to secure all three points for Citizen.

However, Kim Jae-Woong, who scored went on to score in the aforementioned 3-1 win for Anyang, levelled just two minutes later to rescue a draw for Anyang.

However, when the first two times these two sides met at the beginning of the 2014 season, Daejeon came out on top on both occasions.

A 4-0 win at Daejeon World Cup Stadium was proceeded by a thrilling 3-2 away win for the Purples.

An Adriano hattrick and a goal from Kin Chan-Hee comfortably saw off Anyang in July of 2014.

Two months earlier Song Joo-Han, Rim Chang-Woo and Vanderlei were on target for Daejeon, whilst Kin Jae-Woong and Felipe Adao had tried to get Anyang back in it.

Team News

Striker Seo Dong-Hyun could be in line for a return for Daejeon after missing the last few matches with a facial injury.

The on loan Jeju United striker had picked up a facial injury on the opening day but made his comeback in the reserved last week.

Meanwhile, another on loan Jeju United striker, Jin Dae-Sung, will almost definitely miss out.

The 26-year-old front man has picked up a foot injury that has seen him need a splint, the full extent of the injury is yet to be determined but he is a huge doubt for Citizen.
