Preview: Daejeon Citizen Vs Ansan Mugungwha

Hyundai Oilbank K League Challenge Sunday 28th August 2016 7:00 PM KST

The ever impressive Kim Dongchan bagged a brace in a 2-1 win to ensure that the Purples keep the pressure on the teams occupying the playoff places.

Up next for Citizen, however, should prove to be a much sterner test with league leaders Ansan Mugunghwa heading south to Daejeon.

Quite like the Mugunghwa rose itself, Ansan have been somewhat of a thorn in Daejeon's side in recent years; with the police team certainly having the upper hand over the Purples since their first meeting in 2014.

Recently, however, Daejeon have put themselves into a commanding position; currently sitting in 5th place and just two points behind Daegu who now occupy the last playoff spot.

Heading into Sunday's fixture, both sides are on a similar run of form with Daejeon beginning to gather a bit of momentum heading into the business end of the season.

A win for Daejeon could see them jump into the playoff positions but results elsewhere would have to go Daejeon's way, however.

High-flying Bucheon play host to 4th placed Daegu on Monday, a win for Bucheon would be of great help to Daejeon.

Previous Meetings

To date, Daejeon have only been able to muster one win over Ansan in the six times that these two sides have met.

Said win dates back to Daejeon's 2014 K League Challenge title winning season when the Purples sealed a 2-0 win in May of that year thanks to two first half goals from Adriano.

However, since that win, Daejeon have only managed to pick up two more points against Ansan and have suffered three defeats, which includes the last two meetings.

The most recent was in July this year when Ansan recorded a 2-1 home win over Daejeon thanks to goals from Han Jiho and Lee Hyunseung.

Kim Dongchan had equalised just after half time but an 89th winner from Lee Hyunseung sent Daejeon home with nothing for their endeavours.

Team News

Choi Moon-Sik has a relatively fully squad to choose from heading into Sunday's clash.

During Daejeon's win over Goyang on Monday, Jean-Claude Bozga and Gustavo were taken off early with both players considered key for Sunday's game.
