Preview: Chungju Hummel Vs Daejeon Citizen

Chungju Hummel Vs Daejeon Citizen

Hyundai Oilbank K League Challenge Wednesday 10th August 2016 7:00 KST

Form
Chungju Hummel: LLDDLL
Daejeon Citizen: LLWDLW

With Daejeon still clinging onto hopes of securing a playoff spot, last Monday's win against Gyeongnam was an important one.

On Wednesday Daejeon have the ideal chance to build on said victory when the Purples take on struggling Chungju Hummel.

Will the Daejeon players be celebrating like this post Chungju?
Daejeon's form has proved to be somewhat indifferent and have seldom been able to put together a run of more than two or three victories in succession this term.

But, with no wins in their last nine outings, seven of those being defeats, Chungju are on a, quite frankly, dismal run of form and could be considered a near-perfect opponent for Daejeon to build on the Gyeongnam victory.

With their nearest playoff-chasing rivals having tricky fixtures on Wednesday; 5th placed Anyang travelling to Ansan, and Seoul E-Land hosting fourth placed Bucheon at Jamsil, a win for Daejeon could see the Purples move closer to the playoffs places.

Previous Meetings

Daejeon have a near perfect record against their fellow Chungcheong bang-eon (dialect) speakers having recorded four victories and two draws out of the six previous meetings.

The most recent of those victories was in June when Citizen comprehensively beat the sportswear-sponsored side 3-1 at Purple Arena.

Wanderson, Gustavo, and Seo Dong-Hyun had Daejeon 3-0 up with goals on 15, 32, and 76 minutes respectively, before Kim Shin pulled back a late consolation goal for the visitors.

However, Daejeon's last last trip to Chungju saw the Purples come away with just a point for their endeavours having drawn 1-1.

Daejeon fans will be hoping that lightening doesn't strike twice in this instance because, much like they did back in May, the Purples made the trip to Chungju on the back of a 3-1 home victory over Gyeongnam.

And, having beaten Classic side Suwon FC in their previous outing, the Purple Arena faithful were praying it was the start of another 연승 (yeonseung - winning streak), only for their beloved club to falter.

That evening in May, Kim Dong-Chan put the visitors ahead on 53 minutes but, just five minutes later, Kim Chin levelled to see the points shared.

Team News

Daejeon boss Choi Moon-Sik has a relatively fully fit squad at his disposal for the trip to Chungju.

Kim Tae-Bong could be inline for an inclusion in the match day squad as the former Anyang man steps up his recovery from a foot injury.

Gustavo's goal and all round performance should be enough to keep the Brazilian in the side, with the enthusiastic Han Eui-Gwon waiting in the wings.
